Candid Talk No. 2
Will you stand alone and speak your truth?
Standing alone whether it be literally or metaphorically at the end of the day, you are alone. In high school we are not with friends and family 24-7, speaking from experience it is the most hurting and rewarding feeling ever. The hurting part is you have no one to express your feelings to into that moment in time. I have two periods in my day where I’m dead set on doing my work because I do not have communication with a soul in those classes; it’s not that I don’t want to either, the vibes are just not right. The rewarding part of standing alone is that I work harder, pay closer attention to detail, and become fiercer (the good type of fierce like Tyra Banks or Beyonce fierce). In those two periods where I’m solitary I easily produced some of my best work because I feel as if I have something to prove; since I am on the outside in those classes. I know that is a terrible way to think. You should never let anyone make you feel inferior to them. The legendary Madonna said “poor is the man whose pleasure depends on the permission of another”. Never not once did I care about what people were thinking until I was standing alone. Even though standing alone is not my favorite thing in the world; I had to experience it, as everyone does someday. In my solo state I learned again what it is like to have your voice be heard and received. It is easy to speak your truth with a crowd behind you, but in a one person squad the stakes are high because no one is there to encourage you to continue to fight for what you believe in. I will give up the comfort of security to not just stand, but to stand firm in my truth. As I believe everyone should because then you know your cause is really worth it; if you are willing to give up everything and stand alone.
Now I ask the question again, Will you stand alone and speak your truth?
