How much are we willing to risk vs the chances of losing it all.
If we live our truth and speak out, will that end our employment lifeline.
If artists truly believed what they wrote or performed and there was no supporting audience to financially secure their livelihood would they put out the same level of intensity, or would they be like most of us at the end of the day, tired, brainless, barely able to function with our family.
When we share our feelings with the object of our desire, we could lose a viable friendship or partnership because our gonads go wild when they walk into the room. If we expose ourselves we risk being shamed. Many of us think why put our reputation at stake.
The bravery to live our truth comes with consequences are we ready to dash it on the rocks of public opinion.
