Lionhearts, a few days ago I posted about how the confidence to speak – or the belief that it is unsafe to have a voice – is often shaped in our earliest attachment relationships.
I couldn’t pass up adding this photo to the discussion!! I love that the father lion has a hint of a smile at his little one’s roar.
If – unlike this little one – our voice is silenced rather than encouraged, we often instinctively continue our silence long into adulthood – too often gravitating toward or staying in situations and relationships that do not welcome our voice.
To heal, we so often need to learn we can speak – and that there are those who welcome our voices and with whom we will be heard!!
We must learn we can roar, Lionhearts, when roaring is needed.
Thanks to @andrewschoeman for permission to use this amazing photo!!
