Engaging in behavior that you feel guilty or ashamed about erodes your self-esteem and self-confidence. Conversely, you can feel good about yourself by only doing that which you feel is right. Of course this is base on your own moral compass and no one else’s.
What is right and real of you? You see, following your truth always makes you feel good about yourself. Whenever you get the slightest emotional tug that something just isn’t right with what you’re saying or doing that’s you living outside of your truth. It’s your inner conscious gives you a wake-up call saying”This isn’t you.” This emotional snap can happen in a nana second. You may not even notice it or shrug it off as nothing, worse yet; you talk yourself into justifying your behavior.
Your inner “feel good emotion” is your barometer for you living your truth. Simply put, when you feel good about yourself you’re living your truth. When you don’t feel good about yourself they you aren’t.
Living your truth encompass every aspect of your life from the relationships you have to how you take care of yourself. When you find yourself disappointed in yourself because you were silent on an issue you are very passionate about, then you aren’t living your truth. Your words and actions have to match what you feel inside to live your truth. It means being honest with yourself and honoring your integrity.
When it comes to speaking your truth no one can tell you what it is. You have to discover it for yourself. Your truth is not the same as anyone else’s. Only you know what will make you feel good about yourself and what will not. Your emotions are your barometer for maintaining your truth.
Now I ask you, “What is your truth”?
