Everyone lies. Don’t you?
You may not think you do. But, even small deletion or addition to speak up something, or pretending to be someone you are not , or to be as knowledgeable, skilled or prepared as we are expected to be , are all forms of lying…
Sometimes, you even don’t recognize that you are lying. But, our activities help us to identify that we are lying to our self.
Allow yourself the space to spot the lies, so that you can lead a more satisfying life!!!
If your emotions don’t match your words –
Have you ever tried to convince yourself that you were not hurt or angry, but, your emotions told a different story? You have tears running down your face; even though you say everything is fine. Acknowledge how you really feel and express those feelings constructively. If you’re hurt don’t be afraid to say you’re hurt. Honesty is where true healing or resolution comes from.
If you’re not putting action behind what you say, to achieve something you desire –
You’re probably lying to yourself about what you want or how badly you want it. Ultimately, you feel like a failure because you didn’t accomplish your goal. In reality, the goal might not be what you really wanted; it may be what you think you need in order to have something else.
If you believe, ‘It wasn’t your fault’; No matter what happened –
Even if it was your fault you convince yourself that it was not. You tend to repeat the same scenario over and over again with different people or places. You lie to yourself because you cannot accept that, it’s you. Let me assure you, it is you. And that’s okay. Learn from it, grow, and do better in the future.
When you are true to yourself, you allow your individuality and uniqueness to shine through. To be true to yourself , it takes courage. It requires you to be introspective, sincere, open-minded and fair.
Stop trying to be someone you’re not. One of the greatest challenges in life is being you;
Stop trying to compete against everyone else;
Don’t worry about what others do better than you;
Concentrate on beating your own records every day;
Success is a battle between YOU and YOURSELF only;
A lie will destroy you, inside and out. We lie because we are afraid, we feel incomplete, or we feel ashamed. The truth is, the best life is the life we live when we’re completely honest with ourselves , about ourselves!!!
Take note of how you feel throughout the day.

What things make you feel inauthentic or uncomfortable with yourself?
Follow the things that make you come alive……..
