Find ways to honor yourself by speaking your truth. You are not doing yourself or anyone else favors by "putting up with things" so long that you explode. Things can often change in surprising ways by heart to heart communication. No one wants years of baggage dumped on their heads. Additionally, it is detrimental to your health, too, to hold onto that baggage for years (one version of holding a grudge). Honor yourself and others by being willing to share your perspective. If humanity is to wake up and clear its many illusions, we must be brave.
