Many misunderstand "speaking your truth" and take it is a license to be rude and obnoxious.
It it not THE truth if you say what does not need to be said, or if you are trying to make the other person bad or wrong, it is simply YOUR truth, and to be honest, not nice.
If someone asks if you like the food they made for you,
it is insulting to say: "I would never have that again, to be honest. (insult)"
You could perhaps say instead: "It was so different (truth), was there a secret ingredient in there?
I really loved the Apple Crumble! (another truth)"
Learn to play well with others.
This does not mean you have to agree, but be wise enough to show respect (in this case for the time they spent to make you dinner, feed you and their desire to spend time with you) while considering how your words may impact them.
"Speaking your truth" is not shoving your opinion down the others throats, or passively aggressively making projecting comments, or thinking they have to think as you do, and if they do not they are wrong.
It is one thing to be straightforward, yet another to be hurtful.
Learn to recognize social cues, and appreciate the differences in others as this is where you learn and grow as a person.
Often, when you disagree; you may find later on with experience that you actually do agree once you gain experience and perspective.
Wisdom comes from experience...and perspective.
Sometimes speaking your truth is having the wisdom to be kind in spite of disagreeing with someone.
Can you take a step back and speak from your HEART, not your head?
Simply waiting to respond, or not responding at all is the wisest and most loving thing you can do.
And we all want to be wise and loving, do we not?
Choose to be wise.
#coming into balance
This Spiritual Journey has been an amazing one back to myself, becoming whole and realizing who I was meant to be. This Blog will be about Reiki, Spirituality, Love, Twin Flames, becoming healthy balanced and whole and all that I have learned along the way. Channeled messages, spontaneous poems, scribbles and memes will be mixed in.
