I seek to speak what is true and real, despite what others may choose to feel.

When I speak/ write publicly about controversies, social/political issues, and ultimately about what I believe, I’m not afraid of hurting anyone’s feelings.  I refuse to pull any of my punches (figuratively!).  I don’t believe in holding back from saying the truth or being shy about what needs to be said.  In the words of (one of) my hero(s) Ben Shapiro, “Punch back twice as hard.”

I’d like to think that I use tact and discretion, but not at the expense of honesty.

One of my core beliefs is “expression.”  I will (almost!) never limit myself in expressing expression.

“Use boldness, but not overbearance” (Alma 38:12)

I can be meek and kind, but still speak my mind.

I say what I need to say. 

What about YOU?

I seek to speak what is true and real,

despite what others may choose to feel. 

Wanna be bold, but not overbearing

Not be unkind, yet still be daring.
