There may be times in your life when you feel like you’re on the outside looking in; times when you are shy or mute. You may not feel like your voice can be heard because you think no one sees you or because you think people will criticize you and judge you. But it is so important that you face fear directly in the eyes. No one will ever see you, hear you, or take you seriously if you don’t make yourself be heard. Say what you need to say. Ask the questions that you need to ask. Closed mouths don’t get fed.
Part of the reason that you feel like an outsider is that perhaps you haven’t found your path in life yet. You haven’t found your place. You feel lost. But you will never change the feeling of being an outsider if you don’t find your voice and find your path. Find your voice; find your path.
Ask for guidance. Ask for advice. Then listen. Apply what you learn and be willing to share your opinions. When you step out in courage, you will be surprised how many doors open for you. Being strong and courageous will help you find your path and your purpose.
