I wrote this post for The Good Men Project on how I was forced to find what was my principle for my life. Then I had to take a stand for it. As I struggled through my embarrassment I slowly found my voice.
As I came to my senses, I attempted to speak. “Attempted” is a good word. I could barely get a word out; I was shaking so much. Feeling that no matter what I said, I would be damned, yet feeling I needed to speak, I spoke. I knew I was making a fool of myself. Nonetheless, some part of me knew that the intensity of my struggle speaking was about much more than this situation. This voice inside me said, “Just do it. It’s more about speaking in the face of betrayal and anger than being right.”
What are your principles that you stand up for?
