It takes courage to live your truth. First off, what is your truth? Only you know for sure. It can get buried or mixed up with all that you’ve been taught that you’re not sure what part is you speaking and what part is a conditioned behavior. Your truth is in there somewhere but you need to distinguish what values, passions and beliefs are yours and which are the works of other influences that you’ve picked up along the way.
It’s good when teenagers leave the nest to venture out on their own. It gives them a chance to see the world from a different perspective. They begin to discover who they are. It’s as if the sunglasses come off and they can see clearly see what has influenced every aspect of their lives from their parents, friends and education etc.
It’s a time when they discover their truth. They figure out what parts of what they’re learned they’re going to keep and which parts they’re going to disregard. In the process they find their truth.
Your truth continues to evolve as you age because you’re constantly learning through each new adventure. With every new experience you’re deciding what to keep and make your own and what to disregard. A new understand takes place. It’s you evolving. How exciting! It takes listening to yourself without judgment and outside influences to clearly define your truth.
