Your Voice Matters
With the recent election in the US, depending on the state you are in it can feel like your vote doesn't matter. After all 150 million votes were cast 1 single vote doesn't change the outcome. Your vote is your right, and your voice. It used to be that women or African Americans couldn't vote. They didn't have a voice. If your voice doesn't matter, why do so many people fight for the right to be heard?
Your voice matters. The vast majority of us in the human race will not be remembered after we are gone. What we say or what we write may not be heard or read by many people, but you have influence over your audience, no matter how small it is.
The audience that counts probably more than any other is ourselves. Even if nobody else hears us, even if nobody else thinks that our vote matters, it is what we tell ourselves that becomes more true than anything.
Never let anyone tell you your voice doesn't matter.
