There’s nothing magnificent about telling the truth, it’s just living the truth that makes your life honest.
It’s ok not to be ok
Sometimes people forget they all have a unique fingerprint and want to become someone else. It’s because the force of nature still owns the game. We don’t want to look like a threat to others, so we start playing roles.
That’s why our lives look more like a theater. Just a group of actors wearing masks trying to look like someone else. And you play the lead role in this tragedy called “Not my life”. You can see yourself putting on the mask in everyday situations. Or do you talk to your boss in the same way you’d talk to an annoying homeless?
Let’s face it. The biggest problem is that it takes more effort to be open than to be closed. But when you start to act authentically and tell the truth, you’ll become more confident and you will no longer care about other people’s opinions, because you’ve just showed them everything, so you have nothing to hide. Why are you ashamed? Because you are afraid of them discovering your secrets, but now they know everything about you. So there is nothing you can be afraid of.
“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
So what’s the quickest way to the tree of the juicy truth?
