Speaking Our Minds

As I continue to mature, I grapple with the ongoing dilemma of whether to voice my thoughts or to remain silent. This sentiment is encapsulated in the famous quote: "Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt." — Abraham Lincoln

Nevertheless, embracing the role of a temporary fool has its merits. Embarrassing it may be, it invites correction from others, fostering a deeper understanding of the subject matter. Otherwise, you may hold on to your pride but remain as a fool.

Expressing our thoughts enables us to harmonize our internal reflections with outward communication and eventual action. This alignment among our thoughts, words, and deeds is essential for achieving self-actualization.

"Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony." — Mahatma Gandhi
