Taming your truth? Stop wearing yourself out
The truth doesn’t need to look fancier.
or uglier than it is.
It wants to be told.
Because, when you are telling the truth, it must be shared with bravery, confidence and solid faith.
Sometimes it’s saying a firm NO without explanations, expressing openly your point of view on a taboo subject/emotion or letting go; other times, it’s changing your mind or admitting that you don’t know.
Either way, it requires that you let yourself be seen and let go of the need to be right.
And to repeat after my friend Tanya Geisler , The truth of it is that it will be hard. Because your heart won’t trust it even if your cells do. Your muscles and your adrenals will raise hell and fight you tooth and nail. And the stories you will concoct about what “well” means will keep you up at night.
Let’s change the story about how and when to speak the truth.
