When did being uncomfortable turn into a bad thing? When did we decide that we were willing to give up our personal growth for stability? When did we decide that we were willing to remain stagnant to remain in our “safe zones”? There are countless things that we need to talk about, and do, but they make us uncomfortable so we blatantly push them off. We allow prominent issues to fall by the wayside because we don’t want to have to have “that” awkward conversation.
This fear is slowly but surely killing us. The trepidation we hold so close to our hearts is preventing us from having MEANINGFUL conversations and making genuine progress. Whether these discussions are more personal, like end of life care, premarital sex, ED, debt, education, etc. OR more business focused, like public speaking, disagreeing with your boss, or finding a job – anything and everything that makes us squirm, makes us squirm for a reason. So, let’s squirm. Let’s wiggle and waggle and figure out why there are certain things we are ridiculously unwilling to discuss.
My purpose, is to help start the conversations most of us don’t really want to have or aren’t comfortable having. My intention is to find what makes us uncomfortable, and to help us all grow from that discomfort. My goal is to aid you in finding your voice, your stance on an issue, and to help us create the environment where we are comfortable being uncomfortable.
I’ve never been the one to be good at keeping quiet. I’ve never been good at keeping my beliefs to myself. I’ve never been good at keeping my opinions locked in the proper box. But this has never been a bad thing. I’m a realist. Whether you are a glass half full kind of person, or a glass half empty – I just want to know where it went if I didn’t drink it!
I am outspoken in the right ways; because the point is to make you think. To make discussions happen that otherwise wouldn’t have. You are not always going to like what I have to say. I’m not always going to agree with your opinions, and that’s fine – as long as the conversations that need to happen, are happening. Let’s get uncomfortable together.
