Expressing Yourself Honestly

Updated: Jan 3, 2020


One of the challenges you’ll experience in life is your ability to consistently express yourself honestly.

The challenge occurs for various reasons, but ultimately it leads to a kind of self-censorship that then never really allows you to be present in any given situation.

This is particularly interesting in a relationship, for in a relationship, it requires at least two people to be present and in the case that you’re absent, or at the very least, you’re not fully present, then essentially there is no real relationship.

There is some false version of a relationship, but not one grounded in truth – so it resorts to nothing more than a convenient façade.

So how then do you express yourself honestly?

It’s really about getting to the essence of who you are and making sure that’s reflected in your reality, in how you choose to live your life.

It’s about forming a deeper understanding of what is true and what is false.

In not compromising all your convictions away.

It’s about how you use your words and continue to speak truth despite your fear of shame or offending.

It’s about understanding what influences you and knowing whether to opt-in or out.

It’s about establishing firm boundaries and re-enforcing them at will.

It’s as much about being in your body as it is in your mind, so it’s also about movement, sense and intuition.
