Are you honest with yourself?

15 November 2012, 09:40

It takes TRUE backbone to be truthful and to accept the truth and live according to it!

If you are afraid of the truth and you prefer hearing lies instead, then you are weak and you struggle to accept reality, you are most probably living in “fantasy island”! Stay true and don’t live a lie.

 If you are physically attractive, then you know for a fact that you are by now. Same goes for you who is not physically attractive. Either way, the sooner you learn to accept that truth about yourself, the better. I am saying this because, I know a lot of people who go through the trouble of embarrassing themselves in front of crowds and some in front of their communities etc. This embarrassment is all caused by them trying to be what they aren’t or can’t be. You see obese people wearing skinny jeans that sit tighter than their gym tights with everything that should be covered actually exposed. Well that’s just one of the million examples that I could have used.

Just be yourself and stop trying to fit in because, that’s when you actually don’t fit in at all!

I desire a lot of things in life myself yet, sometimes I just accept that I can’t have everything I want, the same exact way I want it. That’s being truthful to yourself. If you cannot afford a BMW then just don’t buy it, because when it gets repossessed after a few months, the person affected is you and only you, including your reputation. Lies are beautiful and attractive, but when the truth comes out, it is it that counts the most because, it is the TRUTH. TRUTH will always be better than lies, in all ways possible because, we all know that in the end, it’s the truth that matters most. 

 I mean even the best of friends are those that are always real towards you. The kind of friends that allow you to be yourself without having to be judged. These are the realest people you know in your life and that’s why they’re still in it, because you like the way they are raw and genuine. Real people are the best people and the reason why they are underrated is that we as humans always prefer THE BEAUTIFUL LIE over THE UGLY TRUTH.

Truth is treated as second best, only because it is simply LESS ATTRACTIVE than its BEAUTIFUL and PERSUASIVE competitor. Well, I still choose to be truthful nonetheless. A lot of people dislike me because, they perceive my truthfulness as cruelty, insensitivity, bluntness, and they would usually use the words “BAD ATTITUDE” to just sum it all up. In a sense, I would say that, I understand where they are coming from with their judgements yet, on the other hand I just think they’re afraid of the naked truth. I am honest with everyone important in my life, INCLUDING MYSELF that is.

People will always have something negative to say about you or the way you are and for different reasons. It could simply be because they just don’t like you or for any ridiculous reason whatsoever.

Express yourself, satisfy yourself first and I promise you, you will love being yourself and you will realise that the moment you see people beginning to accept you and appreciate your sense of uniqueness.

Well this is just a way of approach to life at the end of the day. I hope it was worth the read and that it got you thinking for a while.

How to create long term wealth fo...

I believe, in the real world, life actually follows reasonable principles. Despite the baffle and Bull, the short term push and pull, even exploitation, eventually the multitude of forces kicks you back to reality. For us that simply means, if as a country we want to grow, we have to invest.  Read more...
