“I think I’m going to share it,” I said to myself.

When we have learned through pretty much every piece of societal messaging that feeling safe is the endgame, and listening to Fear, Shame & Scarcity are the shortest journeys through which to attain said safety, then it makes absolute sense that it is more difficult (at first) to even listen for the championing voices, let alone listen to and then honour them in our choices.
