“By being afraid of a negative outcome we never allow ourselves to the possibility of it being a positive outcome.”
By being afraid to speak our truth because the other person may not agree, or may get upset. We deny ourselves our truth. We deny ourselves the possibility of maybe the outcome going the way we want it too. I think of relationships and being afraid to say something in fear of losing the other person. This isn’t a way to live. It isn’t a way to be completely you in the relationship. By hiding in fear of what the other may think or say. So the other person gets upset or god forbid leaves you. Then what? Well, you learned early on that this person wasn’t right for you. That’s how I look at it anyways. I kept so much to myself in my last relationship and was never speaking my truth in fear of the other person leaving me. When in fact down the road I was the one to leave. After all the worry and anxiety thinking he would leave me. I left him.
So speak your truth. Open up the awkward conversations with your significant other. Maybe they’ll surprise you. Maybe the outcome will be something positive. In any situation from a job, to a friend, to a romantic relationship, speak up and say what’s on your mind. If you’re feeling a certain way, express it. Let it out. And remember to spread love and kindness always. Look on the bright side and don’t take life too seriously. And if the other person doesn’t rise up to meet you, don’t take it personally. Just move on. Do what you have to do for yourself. For your personal development. Remember it’s your path you are on. It’s yours alone to steer. So steer it in the right direction.
I tend to be all over the place with my thoughts and ideas because I have so many. I am a dreamer, a believer, and hopeful for a world full of love and kindness. I started my blog to motivate people to live their life authentically and be true to themselves. I need to be motivated myself and I believe together we can make a difference in this world. So welcome to my crazy world. 💗🧚🏻♂️
