KNOWING YOUR TRUTH
Someone once told me, “It’s good to know your own truth, not many people do, but it seems like you do”. I admit I had to think about that statement for a minute. Really, I thought about it more than this person will ever know. Long enough in fact to truly and deeply understand that I DO and knowing your own truth is crucial to how you will experience life, love and relationships.
There have been many people that have crossed my path that if I hadn’t had a grasp on who I was and what I wanted out of my life and relationships, I would have gone down many bumpy roads that weren’t meant for me. In life there will always be people, situations and opportunities that seem like “they are meant to be”. Sometimes if you are not careful, things that appear one way are just a disguised distraction. We all have things that test us and challenge our very inner core beliefs. Being strong, having a solid spiritual foundation and knowing who you are, become invaluable during these times.
If I had any advice to give, it would be to take the time to get to know yourself. I know that may sound funny, but you need to learn what makes you tick. What is it that drives you to get up in the morning and want to conquer the world? What do you love about yourself? If you live your life with a purpose and have a strong sense of who you are, than the chances of you making the right decisions along the way are substantially higher. You might get led in the wrong direction every so often, but you will always find your footing again and get back on track. That handsome guy might pull on your heartstrings, but ideally if you know that a commitment is what you desire and he doesn’t, it’s probably not on par with “your truth”. If that job is 24/7 in an office with 50% travel and you desire a flexible life and you’re a homebody, it’s probably not in line with “your truth”. You become new friends with a person and you find that they seem to have something negative to say about everyone. Seeing is that you are a positive individual who tries to see the best in people, this friendship is probably not supporting “your truth”.
If you don’t really have a good relationship with yourself you might: 1. Except less than you deserve in relationships. 2. End up in a job where you are miserable. 3. Settle for a friendship that challenges everything you stand for.
Do the work on yourself. It will pay you back tenfold. The time you spend on yourself now will prevent you from wasted time on tears and heartache later. By digging deeper and doing the work now, you will find that you are the right person, for the right people and the right job will come into your life at the right time.
There’s no class 101 or full proof manual on how to love yourself, but trust me, loving yourself and knowing yourself is the most important thing you will ever learn in life! After all, you are with you forever, you mine as well get really comfortable! 😉
Thanks Mom & Dad for your guidance in teaching me how to love and trust myself and have faith in God and the Universe!
