Every time there is too much “noise” in my head I tend to exhibit symptoms of panic such as shaking, heart racing, tripping, stumbling over things, and as a result, getting physically hurt. Whenever I am not speaking my truth or am, and not being heard, this happens. I have learned so much about speaking my truth, but unfortunately, this is often met with resistance, anger and confusion by others. Sometimes I wonder, is it really worth it to open my freakin mouth when consequences seem to follow? I have had some difficulties at work since I have been speaking my truth. There is more chaos at home since I am not rescuing everyone. Yet, at what price emotionally, mentally, physically, and spiritually do I have to pay for shutting up? Panic, that’s the price.
