Being honest may not get you many friends but it will always get you the right ones.
– John Lennon
BECAUSE:☑️ Being honest, is trusting!☑️ Being honest, is sharing your thoughts!☑️ Being honest, is being YOU!
If you can’t be honest with yourself or others, then how can you live an honest life?
Do you ever get those thoughts that you always ask too many questions? When you feel like you are repeating yourself, but you are only doing it because you want some answers?
When they are only questions because you are trying to get your point across about how you feel? When they are only questions so that you can make sense of a situation that is all tangled in your mind? And when they are only questions because you simply do not understand?
Sometimes, how you see things are very different as to how other people see things, and guess what? That’s OKAY, because we all have a right to our own opinion. If you are not open and honest about a situation, how can it get resolved? Are we expected to keep our thoughts bottled in, until we explode? Are we expected to keep our opinions to ourselves? Are we expected to keep wondering … ?!
No. No. No. This is NOT good because then the anxiety builds up – frustration. anger. sadness. Yes, yes, this has happened to me in my past, and yes, because of it – I have lost friendships. Yes, because of it – past relationships have failed. I admit it, and I have dealt with it. However; at the same time, some of those friendships are ones that I did not need in my life. Some of those friendships, brought me down – causing my anxiety to get out of whack – causing me to question my own abilities, my own thoughts, my own self-worth. They have molded me into who I am today.
Heck – even past relationships. I have been in that spot where the unwanted thoughts crept in. And because of that, I now have my insecurities about friendships and relationships. Because of that, walls were built up, and it is hard for me to trust sometimes. But at the same time, I have now surrounded myself with people who understand, and I have let the ones who don’t understand – go…
At the end of the day, it is good to keep open-minded, but it is also acceptable that if in your heart something tells you to move on, then trust yourself to do so. Take the baby steps to help accept yourself and what life has to offer you. There is always another door, another way, and it may not be the first door you open, but you must keep pushing yourself to move forward.
Remember – communication is crucial in any form of relationship.
People cannot read each other’s minds, so we have to share and express our feelings and emotions. Especially when it comes to friendships and relationships, and to those people who are part of our every day life!
So, TRUST in yourself to be open and honest about how you feel and what you are thinking. Even though it may hurt in the moment and for some time – the anxious feelings, and the crappy emotions that go along with it – WILL go away!
In time and with patience, it will be better. It will get better. You’ve got this!! ❤️
