Those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind.

imageBe who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind.
There’s a lot of truth in that statement.
Be cordial and reasonable, of course, but don’t tread carefully on every word you say.
Push your concerns of what others might think aside and say what you need to say.
What you’ll find is that most of the time no one will be offended or irritated at all. And if they do get upset, it’s likely only because you’ve brought something important to their attention that forces them to think differently.
When you don’t speak up, there’s a lot of important stuff that never gets said.
And in the end, there’s no greater sadness than holding on to the words you never had the courage to speak.
I know this too well.
