The bodymind feels this injustice deeply and will not let you bite your tongue, or swallow your words without responding in some way.
For most, this response comes in the form of symptoms.
Lower back pain.
Shut your mouth.
It's not okay, and never will be for you to think that it's safer to keep quiet, or for you to think that what you have to say is irrelevant.
Who is making you believe that your voice, words and thoughts are not worth hearing?
Surround yourself by those you can share with, those who you enjoy listening to and who want to hear what you have to say.
Please don't give your power away to anyone who needs to keep you quiet in order for them to keep control of you.
No matter how many excuses your headmind comes up with - it's not okay.
Your bodymind doesn't want to use symptoms in order to encourage you to pay attention to what's happening, but it will if it sees you "making do" with a situation that isn't healthy for you.
Listen carefully to your symptoms.
How much louder do those symptoms have to get before you take action?
Loving you isn't difficult, and it starts with caring enough about yourself to remove yourself from loveless people.
"Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one's definition of your life; define yourself." - Harvey Fierstein
