Being Yourself & Speaking Your Truth
Ways to Practice Being Yourself & Speaking Your Truth
Learn to say No When you feel uncomfortable in a situation. Saying no is one of those words that is so small but so very powerful. As a natural born people pleaser I have had the toughest time overcoming my fear of saying no. It's tough becuase you feel as if by saying no to someone, (especially someong close) you are letting them down or upsetting them. While sometimes yes they will be upset, but think of it this way, being upset to make others happy in the end will only upset everyone.
Being Honest With yourself and others. What do you really want? Want out of life, spirituality, career, relationships. When you start to dig beneath the surface and debris of your outer layers, what do you find? being honest with your self is one of the first steps to a healthier, happier lifestyle. Most of the time we are clogged with thoughts, ideas, branding, views, etc. of others. What your parents want from you, friends, boss and so on and so forth.
"You" Time Spending more time with yourself doing the positive things that you love, helps the body, mind and soul. Allowing yourself to read the next chapter in that book, watch a movie, do yoga, spend a few minutes meditating, calming your mind. Spending time investing in you gives you the tools to find the things that make you, you.
