Today’s Thought: Real transformation requires real honesty. If you want to move forward – get real with yourself!
I have taken a break recently – it’s been healthy and has helped me to see how much I absorb the emotions, fears and anger of other people and that doing so can seriously affect the way I feel and behave. It has led me to the realisation that I need to reset my honesty goals and remind myself of the person I want to be.
I want to be:
- Helpful to others
- Successful in the goals I set myself
- Honest with myself and others
- Have integrity in my actions
Because I have allowed the feelings of others to leak into my mind and body, I have not always met the expectations I have of myself. It’s time to be honest with myself about this; time to put my barriers against other people’s negativity back up and time to check in with myself to make sure that I live my core values every day. These will make me happy.
What kind of person do you want to be? What are your core values and do you live by them every day? Any time you are doubting yourself, check in with these questions. If you can answer them honestly, you can either absolve yourself of any guilt or calm anxiety that problems are caused by you, or you can identify areas of yourself you need to work on.
Honesty with one’s self will support happiness and reduce anxiety!
