I was with the bf’s family last night and I learnt a very valuable life lesson:
Life is too short to be prudish.
Life is too short to edit your thoughts, feelings, or the words that come out of your mouth. You should be able to say what you’re feeling. You should never feel like your voice or your opinion doesn’t matter.
My cousin told me yesterday that she loves me now that I talk – that I say things without making them PG first. That I say what’s on my mind no matter how vulgar or unladylike. She says it makes our conversations a lot more interesting, and funny! Hear that family, I AM funny! :p
Okay so stating your feelings without having a filter at all times may get you into trouble, may get you into some embarrassing moments, but those moments create memories. Memories that you can look back on and say, Hey at least I was honest. You may even feel a little lighter once you start speaking your mind, once you say a dirty word, or a racy comment. It’s so much easier to live happily when you decide to be yourself.
‘Say what you need to say.’
