Finding Your Voice
Tonight, I want to speak about finding your voice. This voice is what your own story stems from whether it is abuse, mental illness, chronic illness, abandonment, loss or grief, or whatever your inner voice tells you. That voice inside your soul needs to be identified by you and must be free to speak out loud to those who are like-minded and even those who are not. Sometimes finding and speaking our voice can be confrontative, but more often it is done as a release into freedom through writing, prayer or confiding in a close, trusted friend and/or counselor. The choice of how you express your voice and when you express it is yours, but whatever you do, don’t stifle your voice. You need the freedom to express what you think, what you feel, and what has happened to you as a result.
Some of us even buried our voice so deeply that the memory of it was so distant that it didn’t exist for years. Mine was like that until I was in my 30’s. Now, my voice is strong and expressive and well-rounded and represents who I am now years after I was abused as a child. That is also possible for you. Recognize your power and your strength whether from counseling, healing, or God, but recognize that you have it inside of you and let it come out into the open. Be strong, be courageous, set your voice free in any way that you can. Just make it happen.
