This is kind of scary...the whole blogging thing.
Who knew?? I mean- just putting your thoughts out there for anyone to read - is scary and kind of a weird! However, I had a big urge to kick it off.. Why?? Because I was brought up in a closed community, and I was raised old school!
I was taught not to speak out because it is RUDE! I was taught to always say YES (& never to argue or say No...) because that's the POLITE WAY! I grew up LEARNING TO STAY QUIET!
When I decided to start blogging it was 1 way to use finally use my Voice. Yes it's all about my "VOICE"!!!
I wanted to be heard.
I wanted to express myself freely without constraints or worrying how will people think, react, or end up treating me for speaking OUT!!!
For so many years I stayed quiet...and now I am learning to SPEAK OUT!!!
So here goes nothing. Or something. I'll let you decide
People hated my honesty and my guts to speak out!! Yes, You read it right! We live in a world in which the norm is to stay quite; to ignore and pretend NO ONE is stepping over you..To wrap up your pain and move on with a smile!!!
Due to my character, I started by politely pointing out that they're a bit loud, then I started hinting that they should show more sympathy since we live under them and that they are constantly distributing us!
Every time they shrugged me off! Days, weeks. & then a year passed by (I can be very patient) till I couldn't take it any more (YES I was building up with rage and YES that's wrong but I was struggling between my current emotions and the way I was brought up!!) and gradually my nice requests shifted to direct & blunt messages.
Do you know what happened?
They turned the tables on ME! Yes!!
I have no idea how but It ended being my fault. They totally ignored the fact it's their actions lead us here.. and that if they haven't turned down my polite requests and every attempt down the wall and instead replied back politely with a "Sorry for disturbing and we will do our best to cut it down" then none of this would have happened (that's how I believed it should have been!).
But i felt very challenged when I noticed they took advantage of my nice character, politeness and manners and interpreted my quietness as an approval of their behavior.
Thus when I finally spoke out they were shocked and couldn't handle or even ACCEPT my Honesty!!
Always SPEAK OUT..USE MY VOICE... and SAY WHAT'S on my MIND
I decided..... NEVER to FEAR the CONSEQUENCES because my VOICE matters.
So my dear readers, I will be sharing with you My Voice throughout this BLOG.
