Find Your Voice

What does it mean to “find your voice”?

To understand what it means to "find your voice," I think we first have to look at what it means to “lose your voice”. During my research for my dissertation I discovered that during adolescence, girls go through a relational crisis where they give up their voice and abandon who they are to meet the expectations of others. Especially those they have a close relationship with.

See, as young girls, we received mixed signals. In one moment we were told to speak up for ourselves and when we did we’re told that what we had to say wasn’t important (either literally or someone talked over us) or that we were being emotional, or that young ladies don't act like that or fill in the blank. We sacrifice ourselves, our voice because we don't want to upset those around us.

With the rise of Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and more I believe it has become harder to find your voice. There is so much noise out there. People everywhere on every platform telling you what to think, say, and feel. When we spend all of our time trying to fit it we begin to forget who we are or worse, we feel wrong for being ourselves.

I struggle to find my voice. There are things I believe that I struggle to share because well, maybe you won't like what I have to say, or you will find it offensive. Worse yet, maybe you will unsubscribe from my email list, or quit following me on FB and Instagram.

I mean the stakes are high, right? Don’t we all feel that way? Afraid to truly embrace ourselves because we know it won't please the people around us. I don't know about you but in this season of my life, I’m tapped out.

What does it mean to “find your voice”?

Finding your voice is about giving full expression to your true self that you are holding nothing back and speaking your truth.

How do you find your voice?

1. LISTEN to that still small voice inside of you. Trust that God or that higher power in guiding you in the right direction.

2. VALUE your unique qualities and gifts, experiences, knowledge, and skills. Remember you are fearfully and wonderfully made.

3. OWN who you are and understand what is important to you. Embrace your values and passions.

5. LIVE intentionally and authentically. You are not going to be everyone’s flavor of Kool-Aid. When you begin to step into who you are you can begin to filter out all of the messages, rules, and beliefs that aren’t yours.

5. CREATE a life that means something to you on your terms. Let me tell you when you quit listening to everyone and trying to please everyone else then you can begin to create a life that means something to you on your terms. It doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks you should do or could do. What do you want to do? What do you want for your life?

I don’t know what season of life you’re in but I believe it’s time to stop trying to please others, find your voice, and speak your truth.
