We often hide.
We learn to hide as children, as it may have been painful when we were honest or shared what we felt. We are conditioned as children. We received so many messages that imply “who you are isn’t enough.”
How do you hide?
In order to fit in, we begin to lie about who we are. It’s often easier to hide and suppress who we are and what we feel in order to be loved, accepted and to avoid disappointing. In this way, we don’t rock the boat, but living a life where you just float is not really living.
We sometimes mold ourselves into who we think others want us to be and play it safe.
When you hold your truth back it creates suffering for you, whether you’re aware of it or not.
What truths are you not telling?
What are you pretending not to know?
You might think that if you share your truth you won’t be loved or accepted. You might feel that if you speak your truth, your relationship will end or your life will crumble.
I believe that the truth serves everyone—even if it doesn’t seem that way at first. The truth is a gift that causes you to get real with where you are at and how you feel. Speaking your truth also forces those around you to deal, to cut the B.S. and feel what’s real.
It takes courage to speak your truth and be who you are.
When you speak your truth it allows for more authenticity, greater expansion in your life. The things that no longer serve you will fall away allowing space for the new.
When you speak your truth you get to create a life based on the freedom of your heart rather than the fear of your ego. The life you create will inspire rather than drain.
It can be scary to speak your truth. It takes vulnerability to reveal what you really feel and who you really are to those around you.
I believe that if you speak your truth and something falls apart, it wasn’t truly aligned with your most authentic destiny to begin with. So know that if you lose something or someone as a result of speaking your truth, it is a blessing. Trust that there is something higher waiting to meet you.
You can have the world, but if you don’t have yourself it means nothing. Real success is not simply achieving goals, but the courage to live with real integrity.
So what is your truth?
What do you really need to communicate and express to those around you?
What do you need to be brutally honest with yourself about?
The truth will set you free.
Not speaking the truth is expensive and will cost you your freedom.
Freedom isn’t doing whatever you want, whenever you want, with whomever you want.
Freedom is being who you are. Real freedom is living and expressing your heart’s truth fully moment to moment.
It can be risky to live this real.
The greater risk is to live a lie.
Speak your truth. Set yourself free.
I dare you.
Tell me, what truths you need to tell?
