dreamwriters: I'd rather be writing with a glitter filled purple inknib pen (I'd Rather Be Writing)

I often don't realize what I should say until later, well after the fact.

"Actually, I kinda got stuck in class staring at my goal sheet. Stigma doesn't actually really come up in the goal I'm focusing on in-class because so many people at my church are open about struggling with mental health issues. That's actually one of the reasons it's one of the few places I consider my community."

Usually I say it has to do with my learning disability, but it's not just that. It's also personal and cultural. I'm a wallflower, I'm softspoken. I prefer listening sometimes, especially if it's a topic of interest to me (or it's something I think I might be able to synthesize into something new).

However my silence doesn't mean I don't have opinions or ideas. Get me comfortable and talking (preferably about something I have an interest in) and you'll find that I can talk up a storm and probably won't stop talking and I have lots of ideas gathered from research, and listening to other people.

This year, I'm trying to stretch, to actually be vocal about my opinions because this is a crazy world we're living in, and well, I'm trying to be more visible. If I want to be a published author, a resource-bridger, and a real change agent, I have to learn to speak up to create and be those things.
