Sometimes I forget my power to hear what others don’t say, that is until I’m faced with a situation that continuously eats at me. Be it some power above, a higher consciousness, or just my natural abilities, I find that I hear what you don’t say.
I am observant of human nature. I take the time to observe a person and figure out their energy, their patterns, what their habits are, and perhaps what they’re capable of. I can learn this in a brief time with a person, simply by hearing what their energy aka their aura is putting off and what their body is doing during a conversation.
More so, I watch the eyes. I listen to the tone. I watch for defensive signs, which typically means someone is either nervous because they’re lying or uncomfortable because of the topic of conversation. There are many reasons why one may put off the signs of being uncomfortable.
Beyond all of that; I can tell if someone is truly happy or joyous in their life choice.
And when I see that someone doesn’t seem happy or joyous in their life choice; I watch them sink into a deeper state of sadness or depression; I wonder why they’re keeping stuck here?
They may share excuses such as, “well because things will change in the future” or “yeah I may not be super happy or joyous now, but when things change, I think I will be or we will be” or “life or relationships aren’t always happy or content, there will be down moments and this is just a down moment.”
I Agree. Sometimes these unhappy or less than joyous times are … temporary.
However, I don’t live in a place where I use those excuses to sugarcoat a situation that truly doesn’t work. Since I prefer to live in this way, I try to get others to see that they don’t have to live in a world where they must tell themselves excuses to make it through every single day.
Sure, sometimes (and in some situations) we do need to suck it up and be responsible, but there is a way to be responsible and still live your truth!
Some days I sit down and go into my thoughts. Deep in the mind and start thinking about things like, “why was it easier to tell this person that the relationship/friendship wasn’t working for me and I needed some space” yet it’s not as easy to do with other people?
Why do I feel more comfortable speaking and living my truth around certain people and not others? It’s an intersting observation about myself and I’m truly curious …
I am going to continue working through this in my mind so that I can push through and get back on track to living my truth as I have always tried to do. I have made a commitment to not run, but rather take the time to deal with the unpredictable moments in life, the emotions, and other things that arrive so that when I make a choice that the choice is truly one that means I’m heading on the correct path that aligns with my truth.
This doesn’t come easy for everyone, and as you can see, it’s not always easy for me either. So, this is what I have to say to you as a means to help you get to a more peaceful place in your life:
Life is Chaotic
Life is a challenge and life is chaotic. You see, I’ve often shared my thoughts about unpredictable life and how things can come along to teach us a lesson or make us pause/stop in our tracks to determine if we’re truly living our truth.
You see, I believe in living our truth at all times. No, this doesn’t mean everything goes as I feel it should. No. life does what it wants. You have to learn lessons before you’ll receive everything you desire and deserve. I do, however, believe in living a life that intuitively feels right for you.
You’ll Feel the Calm
How do you tell when you’re living your truth? I’m not sure how you will feel, but how I feel is “calm” and perhaps a bit of “confidence”. For example, when I’m living on a path that’s aligned with my truth I feel calmer. I am relaxed, even during those chaotic difficult times in life. I am confident about the choices I make.
I feel as if I am floating the rough life in a good way, even when difficult circumstances arise. Even when someone is telling me I’m crazy for believing in my truth and what’s right for me. Even when someone is looking at me like I’m insane for believing that we all have a purpose and must stay true to that regardless of anything else around us.
It’s this sense of true inner peace, and OMG it feels AWESOME!
I miss that feeling.
What Does Living in My Truth Mean?
I just realized that perhaps some of you aren’t sure what “my truth” or “your truth” means. I believe that “my truth” or “your truth” is living in a way that brings joy every day. No, not happiness! The joy that I feel is what I call the “peace” feeling noted above.
Living your truth means taking the time to practice meditation or exercise, something that puts your mind into a calm place every day so that you can clearly see what you’re purpose is in life. This purpose could be to work. This purpose could be to donate your time. This purpose could be to help animals or people. You’ll know it when it comes because you will just feel this complete sense of peace and happiness.
It will just feel “RIGHT”.
How do I Be Confident Living my Truth?
I can’t really tell you how to be confident living your truth, because to this day I struggle with this thing called confidence in living my purpose. You see, I believe you don’t have to ask how to be confident in living your truth after a few months of just doing things that bring you joy, happiness, and being authentic to your true self.
With that being said, confidence is tested often. That’s part of living life as a human with technology and other humans. If you’re not surrounded by people who believe in you, even if they don’t understand fully, then having the confidence to live your truth will be easier.
I say, use positive affirmations and inspirational speeches by people who resonate with you to ensure that you keep your mind straight. You’re going to need to feel yourself with new ideas, concepts, and positive goal setting concepts so that you stay true to your authentic self.
What Authentic Self is Not …
One thing that I’ve learned over the last few years is that living your authentic self or being your authentic self doesn’t mean oversharing on social media. I know it feels awesome to share some of your favorite or difficult moments online but you must try to refrain from oversharing online. There will be people that are happy to see you struggling and their thoughts can sabotage your confidence or goals.
There will be people who leave comments or emotional responses to your positive or trying content online. This is why I say only share the journey of your authentic self or living your truth as I like to call it when you find yourself at an unbreakable moment.
I mean to only share your journey once you’re on the other side, because more often than not; oversharing the process when you feel weakest will deter your success on this journey to live your truth.
I’m still a work in progress and believe I will forever be a work in progress because no human in the world is perfect. We are all capable of and should learn something new every day. Even the little new skills or mindset changes that occur every day will help you continue to have more confidence in living a life that suits your truth!
