Episode 17: Why You Can't Stay Small and Silent

Episode Description:

Why You Can't Stay Small and Silent discusses why many of us who experienced emotional, narcissistic, and other forms of abuse stay small and invisible to feel safe. If we've been taught we are to be seen and not heard, our ideas are stupid, or taking risks were shot down with rejection, this is a normal response to this trauma. 
The podcast also discusses why we cannot stay small if we want to fulfill God's calling on our lives, and why God does not want us to stay small and silent. We discuss examples of people who did not stay small and silent and the difference they have made in others' lives. What if they had stayed small and silent? How many lives would never have changed? 

 We cannot stay small and silent. Your message may resonate with others more than someone else's. You will not find peace unless you step up and do what God calls you to do. Don't stay small, give the world the gift that only you can give, and fulfill the unique purpose that God has given you.
