I am frequently me quietly. But I make an effort to be me not quietly because nobody else says what I have to say. And I have things to say that people need to hear and think about. Things I’ve paid a heavy price to learn. Things that have reality and truth in them. So I say them. Because nobody else does, and nobody else will. And they piss people off and scare people away. But that doesn’t make them not true, or not valuable. Just not valued.
