Best of Our Blogs: February 2, 2018

Doing what’s right isn’t always what’s comfortable.

Not speaking up may prevent others from discomfort. It may save your relationship or even your job.

Staying where you are may feel secure because you think it’s safer than venturing into the unknown.

There is a cost when we cover up, keep quiet and remain where we are. It might not be evident on the outside. But over time, when we continue to ignore our inner voice, we’re sacrificing our physical and emotional well-being.

Doing what’s right may require us to stop overthinking and listen to our inner voice. We need to determine whether its our gut or anxiety talking and question our relationships never allowing in words and people that have a negative impact on our well-being. If you’re sorting out the above, you won’t want to miss our top posts this week.
