When Standing Up For What’s Right Leaves You Feeling Like The Bad Guy

  • Silent because we feared being called out ourselves.
  • Silent because we were trying to fit in.
  • Silent because our jobs depended on it.
  • Silent because we felt powerless to do anything.

“The world will not be destroyed by those who do evil, but by those who watch them without doing anything.” Albert Einstein

I knew that keeping silent to please those around me was the easy path, but that it would start a war within me that I would have to live with for the rest of my life.

That’s the thing with breathwork. You never know how valuable it is until you find yourself in a situation where balancing yourself is necessary to proceed.
