Perk # 11: Speaking My Mind

I certainly did not consider myself to be at high risk for breast cancer.  There is no family history, I am healthy, I exercise, I don’t smoke, and I generally take good care of my body.  The only risk factor for me has been  stress, largely brought on by years of  holding back my thoughts and feelings, and swallowing anxiety.  I now know that to be kind to my body, I have to honor my feelings by speaking my truth.  No more “sucking it up” for this cancer warrior, from now on I will speak my mind when I feel that my rights are being violated!

Tip:  Be kind to your body, mind, and spirit by standing up for yourself, and speaking your truth in a respectful way.
