I am having a hard time understanding key points to write my essay on. Can I get some opinions on why it is important to speak your mind?
Personally, I don't like the term "speak your mind." It implies criticism and hostility.
Is this an assigned topic? Could you change it to why it is important to voice your opinion?
The topic is: Why is it important to say what you think?
In a close relationship, saying what you think is important so that both people understand each other. This is better than fostering grudges silently.
Occasionally saying what you think will help bring another person around to your way of thinking.
Since we have freedom of speech in the U.S., saying what we think is a Constitutionally guaranteed right.
