Self Honesty is decisive action. It is ferociousness! It is putting energy into motion. It is the best decision I have ever made for myself due to the fact I have been a “people pleaser” my entire life. It involves being honest with relationships, communication, eating, and doing what is right and necessary for your life. It is saying “no” when you want to say “yes” for the sake of not creating conflict and saying “Yes” to situations and things that you know serve your well-being. I have found when I am caught in the scrutiny of making a decision I just don’t make one. Don’t do things for “acceptance” sake.
Self Honesty builds self-esteem and self-worth. It requires courage and determination. At least that is what is on my list of ingredients. Don’t beat yourself up because you set up “boundaries” in your relationships, especially when it comes to family members. I believe people will always respect you and if they don’t than it is their problem not yours. It’s like spring cleaning maybe you need to “spring clean” your friends. Keep the ones who honor, respect and accept you for who you are. Doing this for yourself is an act of “kindness” and love.
Be your own best friend, it does not matter what “others” think, it only matters what you believe and think. What “lights” you up and what makes your heart “sing”. So go now and show the world what your made of… they have been waiting for you.
