To live loud and proud is to be honest with yourself, so you are comfortable being honest with others. It is choosing to identify and represent yourself accurately in all your interactions. Here are some questions to help decipher if you're living in your truth. Do you present yourself differently depending on the environment you're in or who you're surrounded by? Are there people in your life that you hide your reality from? Do you feel that you take on alternate personalities? Do you feel pressure to keep aspects of your life confidential? Do all of your family and friends have a full and accurate depiction of your character? Are you comfortable sharing detailed information about yourself? Now take time and assess if you are living true to yourself at all times. If you are, kudos to you. If not, the only pressure you should feel is from within. Everyone is learning and growing at their own pace. Hopefully, your time is near because you deserve to walk your path loudly and proudly.
