minority of one

Never apologize for being correct, for being years ahead of your time. If you're right and you know it, speak your mind. Even if you're a minority of one, the truth is still the truth.

Gandhi

Have you ever been a minority of one? I have. It is uncomfortable to be in that position for those who are not power hungry. For those who are it is a heady experience. To be right and know you are right is powerful.

To speak from that place is powerful, but also risky.

But then...so is not speaking.

Far more often than I would like. I've never been very good at being one of the crowd. But then, I don't care for crowds. I get dizzy.
