Never Be Afraid To Say What You Feel

I got this picture from my friend during the waning hours of the work day - you know, the time between 4 and 6pm.

After a quick laugh, this picture got me thinking.

Do you have the guts to say what you really feel? Especially towards someone whom you think is supposedly larger, taller, stronger, more senior than you, when you are being put down or bullied?

Do you want to always live in fear, not able to express how you really feel?

I remember the words of Sir Winston Churchill, the Prime Minister of Britain during WWII and after. He said,
Courage is rightly esteemed the first of human qualities... because it is the quality which guarantees all others.
How very true....

    In out working environment, it is hard to "stand up" for yourself. everyone expects you to "follow" them. Any suggestion or recommendation make that would clash with the senior's idea during meeting are deem as traitor.

    However, this kind "culture" never suits me and I'm always tend to speak up my mind, though it might leave me out of the herd.

  4. Hi Will & Helen!

    willchua - i would have to agree that in our asian culture, we are taught to respect our elders, boss and etc. so, to speak out is like disrespecting people. however, to speak out, we need a bit of wisdom and tact as well. don't simply hentam... hahaa

    helen - hi!! you had a very interesting topic which i jumped from keeyit's site. yea, you need guts and wisdom. don't simply hentam for the sake of hentam-la. as for stupid drivers.. i will still honk, 'coz they're in the wrong or are posing a danger to others mah.

  5. Hmm depends to who.. I will think twice when I talk to my boss or managers or customers. Sometimes not everything I can say as what I think..

    I cannot tell the customer "Actually our sales person really do not know how to do sales one..."
