It can be difficult to stand up for the truth, but that’s what makes it so important to do so, particularly when everyone else seems to be on the opposite side.
Social pressures, insecurities, and fear keep our mouths shut as injustices occur. Scared of the consequences of speaking out or what people will think, it may feel easier to sit back and let things slide.
But there are times when it is so important to stand up for your beliefs and times when you must dare to raise your voice, especially if it’s not the popular opinion. That is when it becomes mandatory for you to stand up for what’s right. If you don’t, who will?
“Raise your words, not your voice. It is rain that grows flowers, not thunder.” — Rumi
“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.” — Martin Luther King, Jr
