Speaking My Mind – Like an Atrophied Muscle

Today I had to speak my mind to a good friend and colleague. It was for the greater good, overall. I don't think that the message hit home, but only time will tell. I must say, it was exhausting.

I'm not used to being assertive and really pushing ideas anymore, which to me feels like a lost skill. I will have to take the opportunity to build up that confidence again.

I definitely enjoy learning new skills, but I also need to rebuild some of the old ones. The key – for me – to assertiveness is confidence and conviction.
