Dear Hermana y Hermano


The time comes when we realize that no one else can advocate for us better than ourselves. Whether we're navigating the complexities of the workplace, nurturing relationships, or battling mental and emotional stagnancy, the power of self-advocacy is the step forward.


Remember when we first started our careers? We were hesitant to speak up for what we wanted or needed in the workplace, fearing we'd come off as pushy or demanding. But as time went on, we learned that by not advocating for ourselves, we limit our own growth and potential. Remember when we finally mustered the courage to ask for that promotion we knew we deserved. It wasn't easy, but it paid off in more ways than one, starting with empowerment and dándonos nuestro lugar.


Relationships, whether personal or professional, thrive on effective communication. We've both learned this the hard way, especially when it comes to dealing with draining friendships or toxic dynamics. Instead of letting things fester, we've learned to speak up and communicate our feelings openly and honestly. It's not always easy, but it's led to healthier, more fulfilling connections in our lives.


Perhaps the most challenging aspect of self-advocacy is confronting our own mental and emotional barriers. We've both struggled with feelings of inadequacy and self-doubt, holding ourselves back from pursuing our passions and living authentically. But through self-reflection and seeking out professional or personal resources, we've broken free from the cycle of stagnancy and embraced personal growth.


Hermana y hermano, self-advocacy is not just a skill—it's a mindset, a belief in our own worthiness and agency to shape our lives according to our desires and values. It takes courage, vulnerability, and perseverance, and the rewards are immeasurable. By advocating for ourselves in the workplace, relationships, and our own mental and emotional health, we reclaim our power and pave the way for a more fulfilling and authentic existence.


Hermana y hermano, let's continue to embrace the journey of self-advocacy together. It's the path to true liberation and self-discovery.
