Standing up for ourselves is not a matter of choice but more a matter of necessity for when we fail to do so we remove a little more of our identity. When we agree with someone else without speaking our truth on a subject we are nobodies who do not have anything to contribute to a discussion or even to society. We just blend in with the others even if we believe they are wrong.
We must always remember that standing up for what we believe in is essential in building our character no matter how many adversaries we may face. These are our lives, to discount our feelings makes us invisible people!
