Speak up!

In the video above, Luvvie Ajayi isn't afraid to speak her mind or to be the one dissenting voice in a crowd. "Your silence serves no one," says the writer, activist and self-proclaimed professional troublemaker. Ajayi shares three questions to ask yourself if you're teetering on the edge of speaking up or quieting down -- and encourages all of us to get a little more comfortable with being uncomfortable. One: Did you mean it? Two: Can you defend it? Three: Did you say it with love? If the answer is yes to all three, I say it and let the chips fall. That's important. That checkpoint with myself always tells me, "Yes, you're supposed to do this."

When did you know that you should stand up and speak out and tell the truth?

Did you do it? Why?
