Now I am not vouching for perfection here, nobody is 100% honest all of the time. We are not superheroes. But what I am vouching for, is an awareness of how honest we are with ourselves and others.
To be honest, we must first value honesty. We must believe that it will improve our lives. Why do I value honesty?
1 It allows me to discover who I truly am and what my desires are
2 I have formed deeper connections with people
3 I have found freedom in being the rawest, realest version of myself, letting go of the expectation's that others have of me
Now before I continue, I want to illustrate something (It will make more sense later)
2 How do I really feel right now?
A famous quote says, "Be a first rate version of yourself, not a second rate version of someone else." Why? Because it saves energy and makes you feel more real and alive. Sounds very simple. But with society expecting us to be and act a certain way, we sometimes lose sight of ourselves. So be YOU, and I promise you, it will feel better knowing that the people in your life respect you for who you truly are.
