We all preach about how important it is to be honest, but rejection is so often the result of pure honesty. It’s really no surprise that we’re all so afraid.

can’t rape my spirit or take my name.
Whenever you see something that goes against what you accepted to be unjust or unfair or wrong and you decided to change it, do it. Stop being afraid. Stop shaking.
If it were your friend, sibling, or child who became the victim of this crime and someone witnessed it, wouldn’t you want them to step in and help them?
