Honesty. This word can mean a truthful expression of something that we feel, and a response that inspired by our true selves. Many times, we choose to cover things up, maybe to an extend of lying not just to people around us but even to ourselves, just so we “think” we could make things better. Before we could even stride an action, we already made assumptions using our own perception. These assumptions are very toxic because it is drive by fear, jealousy and ego. Know that your higher self would never choose any options that may cause more harm, or make us feel less love. Just be discerned, pay more attention inside rather outside and be brave to change.
Emotions are something so special that most of the time, we decided to hide them in a place where we do not need to deal with it. We used multiple ways to isolate them, so we do not feel anything that the emotions that would wanted to let us know. Just to name a few ways how we would cover up our feelings, a temporary relief on subjecting ourselves to the real emotions are like overeating, overspending, over-indulging in sex or in anyone activities that prone to addictions. These ways make us felt the “good” temporary but, we forgotten our real emotions.
What is our real emotions? The feelings you are dealing with everyday; interactions of your surrounding including places, people and situations. If any of those factors would trigger an emotion response, look at them and not bury them deeper by seeking out temporary relief methods as above. When we pay attention to our emotions, it didn’t bring us pain, but it highlighted the pain that has been inside us and we would take small step to make some changes to ease the pain. In this context, emotions has becoming a gift to us and not becoming something scary.
