‘Under camouflage’. The uncomfortable feeling that one associate with the need to say something even if you are afraid to say it. One instinctively feels that a value or boundary that one holds has been violated, should you fringe? The concern that we have to choose between acceptance and what we find unacceptable? Instead, we stay silent in the face of it, the thing is the consequence doesn’t disappear. Instead, we cause damage to our social standing. Why are you afraid of speaking up? If we are ridiculed for speaking up as a child, often it can be difficult to advocate for our needs as adults. Opinions may differ, so if yours contradicts with that of one that is important to you, it tends to be difficult. The concern about what others might think. Through pride, pain, and sorrows speak up, it takes a great toll on our well-being, never be under camouflage.
