I need to learn to speak up more. I’ve been working on this flaw/weakness of mine for the past few years but there are times where I regress to my old ways.

Even when I do speak up, I feel like I am not taken seriously. I feel like my opinions don’t matter and that’s when I get discouraged. I feel my self-esteem dip just a little bit.

On the other hand, when other people voice their ideas and concerns, I dome best to listen and work with them so they know they are heard and that their options matter to me.

I know that being confident and speaking up cannot change overnight and I’ll get better as time goes on so I just need to keep at it and not regress as I have before.
