Against the Concept of “Speaking Your Mind”

I think you totally missed the point of that saying. When people say “speak your mind”, they almost always mean it in a context where most of the room may disagree with you on your ideas or principles. Speaking your mind means thinking for yourself and not bending your beliefs to the will of others when you truly feel firm and justified in your unpopular way of thinking. Thinking about what you’re going to say instead of blurting out half formed thoughts is a trivial lesson that I don’t think needs to be focused on.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
