HONESTY & SElF REFLECTION
H O N E S T Y & S E L F R E F L E C T I O N
I’m going through a massive “honest” phase at the moment.
I feel like it’s coming from a space where I’m tired of people (myself included) not saying how they really feel or what they really think out of fear of what others will think or how others will react or judge them.
We all tell ourselves stories everyday about “who we are” and “what we do”.
In our very essence we are all the same, all made of the same stuff, all just trying to live a joyful life and experience great things.
But we can get trapped by our stories.
“I could never do that, I’m not confident enough” ... nice story.
“I will never look like that, I’m not genetically gifted enough” ... nice story.
“I will never be in her position, I’m
Not talented enough” ... nice story.
What if we take the time to rewrite our stories, even as we tell them, start speaking from a place of truth:
“if I work hard enough, I can achieve that too” this is true.
We often get caught up in just agreeing with what everyone has to say (positive or negative) even if we know it’s not how we truly feel...just to feel like we are on the same wave as them, feel part of a tribe that holds themselves to certain values that we agree with because people like to have people on the same wave as them. It’s why clubs and society’s and groups exist. We are social beings, we crave the feel good factor that comes with people agreeing with us. It’s uncomfortable to have someone disagree with you.
But If you are honest there is no inner turmoil and if you tell people how you really feel even if it makes them and you uncomfortable it’s going to help you both grow and elevate and talk about things that are true instead of getting caught up in fruitless gossip.
Honesty creates clarity and also makes you more respectable and builds your character.
I’d be happy if when people think of me they would say "she spoke with convincing honesty about everything" the reason honesty is convincing is because it’s coming from a place of truth. There is nothing and no one to convince. It just “is”.
So today and every other day for the rest of my existence, I’m practicing honesty in everything I do and say. Encouraging others to do this too ☺️❤️🙏🏼 more creates more.
Tell me in a comment what is your biggest fear and how you feel about honesty, even give examples of how being honest made you or someone else feel....and I’ll reply
Yours in truth

Yes yes yes, I had this yesterday toying with myself over how honest I should be with a doctor fearful of his reaction to my words. I chose truth and even spoke about the masculine/feminine, logical and human being. His response was quite beautiful as his eyes were open. Understandable not every reaction will be the same❤️
