So for Day 7 of Lessons Learnt before turning 24, Make sure you Speak Out when you need to.
What does this mean?
For me, speaking out is important and again very situational. If I feel something is wrong, someone is being treated wrong, someone is being spoken to in the wrong way, speak out and say something about it. Stand up for these people or that person. Stand up for the situation, Your voice is so important to stand up and speak out for what you feel is right.
Never let anyone bully you into submission and saying you should just be quiet, these are people you don’t need in your life. And your friends and family don’t need them in their life either.
In this day and age it is so important to speak out about so many things, woman’s rights, racism, the gender pay gap, LGBTQ+ Inclusivity, workplace treatment, the list goes on and on. But this also relates in other situations! your friend is talking to another friend like shit, speak up about it. Thats why I feel it is situational, political and non political notions deserve to be spoken up about just as much.
Free speech and all that, make use of it!
