Let Ryan Be Ryan

With apologies to Aaron Sorkin, I need to rant.


This is more important than people liking me. I want to speak now!

That’s it! I’ve had it! No more! I’m so done!

I have held my tongue long enough. I’ve kept my cards close to the vest long enough. I can’t take this anymore. I have had enough! I have had absolutely enough!

Let’s keep my mouth shut because nobody gives a damn about what I have to say. That’s the mindset I’ve had long enough.


I’m serious, I can’t take this anymore.

I have kept a giant in a cage. I have kept my monster on a leash.

It’s time.

It’s time to let the monster free. It’s time to let my monster intellect, my gigantic heart, and my loving soul out of its cage.

It’s time to Let Ryan Be Ryan!

This is a different side of me that nobody has truly seen. But the monster has to run free.

I can’t hold back anymore.

I’m done!

I’m mad as hell and I’m not gonna take this anymore.

I’ve been at a 4 because I never thought anyone cared. I never thought my voice mattered!

But that is bullshit! My voice matters!

My piece on re-shaping the conversation about being a human being after Charlottesville was featured by the Good Men Project.

People hold onto my voice and what I have to say. They hold onto it with every word! I create magic just by walking into a room.

I am a giant among men! And it’s about time the world knows it!

I will no longer keep my opinions silent because I fear they’ll offend. I’ll no longer keep my intellect under wraps because I’m afraid it won’t be appreciated. I will no longer hide my light under a bushel.

It’s time to Let Ryan Be Ryan!

I’m gonna raise the level of inspiration in this world. And let THAT be my legacy!

It’s time to Let Ryan Be Ryan!

If you don’t like that, if you don’t align with that, if you don’t serve at the pleasure of Team Ryan, it’s been nice knowing you. Because way more than you are aligned with this.

It’s time to Let Ryan Be Ryan!
