A Case of Laryngitis

Updated: Mar 31

Have you ever felt like you're shouting into the void? You express yourself, but the response is a hollow echo, or worse, a dismissive glance. This feeling of being unheard can be incredibly isolating and silence the very voice you long to share. Believe me, finding your voice and feeling heard are journeys we can all take.


Finding your voice isn't about becoming the loudest person in the room. It's about understanding what matters to you, the unique perspective you offer, and then expressing it with confidence. It's about feeling worthy of being heard, of taking up space with your thoughts and ideas.


Here's the thing: your voice is already there.


It's the whisper of excitement about a new project, the simmering frustration with a situation, the bubbling joy at a friend's success. It's all within you, waiting to be acknowledged and expressed.

Here are a few ways to cultivate that inner voice and step into your power:


  • Know Yourself: Self-reflection is key. What are your values? What are you passionate about? Figuring this out gives your voice a foundation.

  • Start Small: Don't feel pressured to make grand pronouncements. Speak up in casual conversations, share your opinions with friends, and write down your thoughts.

  • Embrace Imperfection: Don't be afraid to stumble. Finding your voice is a journey, not a destination. There will be moments of doubt and awkward phrasing. That's okay! Keep practicing.

  • Find Your Tribe: Surround yourself with people who value authenticity and open communication. These are the folks who will listen without judgment and encourage you to speak your truth.

Remember, feeling heard is a two-way street. Actively listen to others, and you'll be more likely to receive the same courtesy.


Finding your voice is a powerful act. It allows you to connect with others, advocate for what you believe in, and live a more fulfilling life. So, step out of the shadows, raise your voice, and be heard. The world needs to hear what you have to say.
