FInding your voice.

I think a large part of why I've started on this writing endeavor is to find my voice. For so long, I've just been faced with tasks given to me by others: do this assignment, come into work by nine, do this, do that.

I've also been faced with tasks given to me not just personally, but societal mandates: first you go to college, then you get an office job, then you work for forty years, then you retire, then you do what you want for however long you have left, and then you die.
Isn't there more than this? I think the reasons my postings have been so terse and unimaginative is because I simply don't have a voice. Or if I have a voice, it's very scared and in hiding.

What does one have to do to find their voice?
