Find Your Voice

Courage To Be YOU!

Do you struggle with expressing your thoughts, feelings and desires? Discover your voice and the freedom and confidence to speak it.

LifeStar Counseling can help you:

  • Overcome social fear
  • Gain strength to speak your beliefs
  • Escape from a controlling relationship
  • Embrace your passions
  • Replace self-criticism with healthy positive truths

Imagine being with a group of friends and someone in the group turns to you and says, “What would you like to do tonight, Mary?” While you maintain a smile, there is a silent panic creeping in as you scramble to come up with an answer. You intuitively know what each person in the group wants to do but really have no idea what you would really like to do. You choke out an answer hoping no one can see or sense your panic. The fact that you do not know what you like, what you don’t like or maybe can’t voice those thoughts even if you do know them can be very disconcerting.

It takes courage to find the strength and determination to find your own voice and even more strength and courage to use it on a regular basis. Sometimes people think it is selfish to voice your own desires or thoughts. The truth is that knowing your own likes and dislikes and being able to voice them respectfully is far from being selfish. It is living confidently and being willing to share your own uniqueness with those around you. Selfishness is demanding your own way and insisting that everyone conform to your ideas or you will make them pay somehow.

There are many roadblocks that we can run into in life that can squelch our voice. Fear is a huge roadblock that can keep many from speaking up. Past experiences that ended up negatively leave scars that keep us from expressing our true selves. Low self-esteem also can keep our voices silent if we don’t believe we have anything worth sharing. The freedom and confidence that comes with being able to know your own voice and having the courage to share it is very liberating.
