Being Honest With Yourself

Updated: Mar 8, 2020

I just wanted to share today some thoughts I had about one of the most important parts of life I realized...and it's being really honest with yourself. What I mean about being honest with yourself is recognizing, really recognizing, what is going on with you.

One of the most common reactions to any difficult situation is denial and suppression. It is natural to deny things because they can be too painful or uncomfortable. It can be almost an unconscious automatic reaction, like a habit.... deny/suppress/deny/suppress and on and on with even the smallest things. It can be so strong that when people begin to practice mindfulness or meditate they don't even realize things like they are tired, or they are hungry, or how stressed they are with certain aspects of their lives.

One of the best ways to 'clean house' so to speak, is to be brutally honest with yourself, about everything if you can.

I know this can be difficult, it can be difficult for many reasons. For example, it can be a challenge because acknowledging things can mean actually confronting them and this can be very painful if there are things in our lives we don't like or aren't ready to look at. But more than this, it can be a challenge to even see what is going on with yourself. If something has become normal to you, you may not even know the difference. For example, until you feel happier you may not know you are depressed, it can just become your norm and when something is a norm you don't remember another way.

But one of the fastest, most rapid ways to change your life and to shift your energy is to be really really honest with yourself. The good, the bad, the ugly, the beautiful. Once you recognize and acknowledge something or are able to acknowledge something, then it can shift. It can change. Just the awareness of something provides insight that it exists and it has to change. It's just part of energetic law.

What I mean by this is once you see that you are tired, or hungry, that realization cannot go back, it's out there. Or maybe more importantly when you see things like "I am not happy in my marriage" or "I am not happy in my job" it changes the way you view the marriage and view the job. When you really see and acknowledge something, it's not possible usually to go back.

You can try to convince yourself of course that "no, I am happy with x,y, z" or "no, I didn't realize what I thought I realized." But once it's out there it's hard to put it back in the box (so-to-speak). Once something is out there, it's out there on some level.

So I'd like to leave you with something to reflect powerful is naked truth? How strong is brutal honesty?

Just think about it! :)

With So so much Love!!
