It takes real courage to speak your truth and be who you really are.
It’s not for the faint of heart.
We are conditioned as children. We receive so many messages that says, “Who you are isn’t enough.”
In order to fit in we begin to “lie” about who we are. It’s often easier to hide and suppress who we really are and what we really feel, in order to be loved, accepted and to not disappoint. This way we don’t rock the boat. But living a life where you just float is not really living.
We sometimes mold ourselves into who we think others want us to be and play it safe.
When you hold your truth back it creates suffering for you whether you are aware of it or not.
What truths are you not telling?
What are you pretending to not know?
I believe that the truth serves everyone, even if it doesn’t seem that way at first. The truth is a gift that causes you to get real with where you are and how you feel. Speaking your truth also forces those around you to deal, to cut the B.S and feel what’s real.
When you speak your truth it allows for more authenticity, greater expansion in your life, and the things that no longer serve you will fall away allowing space for the new.
When you speak your truth you get to create a life based on the freedom of your heart rather than the fear of your ego. Then the life you create will be inspiring rather than a drain.
It can be scary to speak your truth. And takes vulnerability to reveal what you really feel and who you really are to those around you.
So we often hide.
How do you hide?
We learn to hide as children as it may have been painful when we were honest or shared what we felt.
You might think that if you share your truth, you won’t be loved or accepted. You might feel that if you speak your truth, your relationship will end or your life will crumble.
I believe that if you speak your truth and something falls apart, it wasn’t truly aligned with your most authentic destiny to begin with. So know that if you lose something or someone as a result of speaking your truth, it is a blessing. Trust that there is something higher waiting to meet you.
You can have the world, but if you don’t have yourself it means nothing. Real success is not simply achieving goals, but the courage to live with real integrity.
So what is your truth?
What do you really need to communicate and express to those around you?
What do you need to be brutally honest with yourself about?
The truth will set you free.
Not speaking the truth is expensive and will cost you your freedom.
Real freedom isn’t necessarily doing whatever you want, whenever you want, with whomever you want.
Real freedom is being who you really are. Real freedom is living and expressing your heart’s truth fully moment to moment.
It can be risky to live this real.
The greater risk is to not live a real life, but a lie.
Speak your truth. Set yourself free.
I dare you.
