Blogspiration 25: Enemies

Blogspiration is a weekly meme hosted by GrowingUp YA & Saz101. The meme was created to help spark inspiration among bloggers, readers & writers alike. An inspirational quote/picture/video is posted weekly, on the day of the author’s choosing, so that it may inspire creativity, conversation & just a little SOMETHING.
A lot of the time, people worry themselves to death about what others think of them.  I know I've fallen prey to that maddening tendency from time to time.  If you're the type of person who regularly speaks their mind, or if you wish to speak your mind but fear retribution for your opinions, here's a quote you should bear in mind.

None of us can please anyone, but if we can make a difference by making our voices heard, it's worth a few enemies.  
Sometimes, in order to be genuine, we need to be LOUD!


  1. Great advice, even if it's hard to take sometimes. Generally though, I figure if someone is going to get that bent out of shape over a difference of opinion, it's best to just let them be your enemy and save your energy for something more productive.

    By the way I tagged you in a meme over at my blog. Stop on by when you have a chance.

  2. There are not many benefits to aging, but getting a little less concerned about what others' think is one of them. I'm near as sensitive to it all as I used to be. I'm so glad; it can be tormenting.

  3. I love this! I do feel bad when people have problems with what I think or do, but I must remember that I can't worry about everyone's opinions and I need to focus on being true to myself!

  4. L.G.... this is WONDERFUL. And... I mean, I can't say I relish the idea of having enemies, but to have it mean something like this would be a pretty marvellous thing, indeed.
