It is good to keep mum most times. Silence is a good virtue but there are sometimes you need to VOICE OUT. Many are dying in silence – They cried when no one was there and they laughed when in the midst of people.

There are many situations that dictate speaking out:
(1) When you are experiencing an extreme maltreatment from your spouse.
(2) When you are experiencing an extreme maltreatment from your boss.
(3) When you are experiencing an extreme maltreatment from your guardian or parents.
(4) When you are in dire need of a particular thing.
(5) When you are sexually assaulted.

(1) When you are experiencing an extreme maltreatment from your spouse: Though it’s an abnormal development for a third party to know about what transpires between couples. However, when one of the parties is experiencing a situation that surpasses what he/she can cope with, there is a need to speak out. At least, the situation can be related to a spiritual leader, a marriage counselor or an advocate, but be careful and sit down to think on the advice and guidance offer you before you take steps.
(2) When you are experiencing an extreme maltreatment from your boss: In the case of facing a challenging situation from your spouse, you cannot change your partner. Meanwhile in the case of a boss, you can seek expert’s opinions, but the problem can be easily solved by changing your boss. You can even be your own boss!
(3) When you are experiencing an extreme maltreatment from your guardian or parents: Don’t say because it is your parents or guardians, you won’t speak out. The first step is to call them and tell them what they are doing that you don’t like. If they don’t desist, you can then inform the family head or their pastor or any other religious leader.
(4) When you are in dire need of a particular thing: If you are in died need of anything, don’t keep quiet. “Ask and it shall be given unto you.” Ask God first, and let Him direct someone to help you or direct you to the person.
(5) When you are sexually assaulted: Many people, especially ladies, don’t want to speak out when it comes to this aspect because of the fear of being stigmatised. Speak our! Tell your parents, not your friends. You can also tell any religious leader or appropriate authority around you.

If not that Jesus’ time is up on earth, you know Him, he would never keep quiet. Very outspoken a man! He, himself,  in Luke  21:15  says, “For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist.”
