Yes! Your voice is your investment. Look at the investment of Martin L. King, Rosa Parks, Harriett Tubman, and many others. If had these people allowed their pain, and confusion about life shut their voices down we would not be voting; drinking the same water as the white folk. Our children would be suffering today. You need to open your voice box and let those whom hurt you, those whom fail you hear. But even so when you open up to these people, they see that they no longer scare you, they will keep trying; but the stronger your voice of opinion the more the abuser will take heed. It is not what you say it is how you say it. You also must learn to set the tone. There is a time and a place to express your self. Setting the tone, the mood, and the origin opens doors to freedom of speech and having comfort to speak . Yes set it off. Own your voice. The one you fear, you need to believe they fear you more; is why they treat you like they do. They feel they need to over power you before you seize the power.
