I just paid a long overdue visit to Jennifer Boire's blog Muse Mother and read this quote:
I believe I'm here to speak my truth and that's all I have to do.
I don't have to make people understand it...
I just have to speak the truth.
~Anne Wilson Schaef
This message appears everywhere I turn! And yet I cannot hear it too many times. I'm listening, I'm speaking and I'm writing my truth -- and I know I need to do all three on a more consistent basis (especially the writing, God help me).
For me, "I don't have to make people understand it" is today's brass ring!
Deep breath. Exhale...
