Tired of Being the Squeaky Wheel

11454297503_e27946e4ff_h

The squeaky wheel gets the grease.

That’s the way it works.

But,

I don’t want to be the squeaky wheel.

 

I sit in the meeting

Knowing someone needs to speak.

But will they?

It needs to be said.

 

Please say something.

It needs to be said.

Everyone is thinking it.

 

Ugh…ok…

I’ll say it.

It needs to be said.

 

The squeaky wheel gets the grease.

That’s the way it works.

But,

I don’t want to be the squeaky wheel anymore.

  1. Sometimes you just want others to stand up – I get that. You can only do it so much. But good for you – you did it for the best of all.

  2. i hear you, sister! It’s doesn’t feel right to let things go unsaid, but it does get old to be the only one to ever have the courage to speak up. From experience, I know that the others are just too afraid. Like you, I can’t stand mediocrity or settling for things that aren’t fair or right. Good for you to set boundaries but it might be tragic for you to go quiet. Have a great weekend.
