Hello you wonderful people,
I’ve stumbled across this saying a little while back and for me it was definitely completely true.
I used to never be able to say „no“. And always wanted to make everyone around me happy. When I was a teenager this meant trying to go to every party I was invited to, the older I got it meant to follow the path that my parents thought would be best for me and still to this day it is sometimes hard for me to sit back, blend out everybody elses wishes for me and just focus on what I want. What I need. And what makes me happy.
Because if you only live a life for other people, you won’t make them happy (because they will feel that you are not giving your all), it won’t make you happy (because you didn’t want to do it in the first place) and in the end no one is truly happy. So thats why it’s important to be honest- to other people and to yourself.
In this growing up process, I’m learning everyday how important it is to be honest. To share what I am feeling and to be open about it. I can never get to where I want to be. I can never get what I want. If I’m not being completely honest about it, to myself and to other people.
It is hard. It is hard admitting to yourself that you might be on the wrong track, that you might be doing something that is right but doesn’t fulfill you. Doesn’t make every fiber of your body and soul happy. But honesty is absolutely necessary to get to a point of pure happiness.
So let’s be honest today and be proud of your pure and honest self!
