Most of us consider ourselves honest, yet many of us struggle with expressing ourselves honestly. This is often the case especially if we are very heart-centered or sensitive. We worry that the true expression of our desires will somehow hurt the other person, or we are afraid of another’s reaction if we tell them something we feel they don’t want to hear.
The truth is when we do things to cover our own fear or somehow protect the other person, we are hurting the very people we want to protect. Most of all we are hurting ourselves. By denying our true feelings, we are keeping ourselves and everyone else involved from the opportunity to grow.
By standing in our power and owning our truth, we keep our personal integrity. Honoring our integrity is a significant benchmark for bringing more joy, abundance, and success into our lives.
Have you ever noticed that when you do something you don’t want to do it creates more problems in your life and even problems for those around you? Remember, when you do what’s right for you, you are automatically doing what’s right for everyone else. It is sure to improve your relationships as well. This brings us to our next section.
