How often do we spend our times wondering about truth in anything? When we have truth, what do we usually do with it? Do we stand for it or do we refute the truth? Being honest is stating that OK I know that roads are tough and words are not smooth but you can do this. Really if you cannot be honest with yourself who in this world will be for you? So in a sense it also goes to trusting who you are and what you are all about. I've been thinking how easy it is to get caught in something that has nothing to do with you. Or finding reason to make everything make sense when it is not meant to be. I think that somewhere along the lines of time, honesty, and trust, we build these levels of self that demonstrates what we are to society more or less than we are to ourselves. We are reflectors staring back into the world and hoping a beam of light radiates to give us appreciation.
Some things are rather clear than other. Honesty comes a long ways in life. I think when we think we know something we really don't. Sit in someone's circle, sit alone in the light, or sit across ourselves to depict what are we doing and what we are living for. Over time we learn to be patient and trust ourselves. It will take experiences and still learning because no one has all the answers just opinions about something. Really at the end of the day, you have no one to answer to but yourself. Even if society tells you to think, act, and feel a certain way, we don't always have to be influence under what we are told by others. Honesty is like a choice. You can chose to be or you can chose not.
I really struggle with honesty in all sectors and I try to come to an understanding about what is happening before me or that involves me. I just think any situation I am placed in, there is a way to understand and deal with it. Nothing is ever black and white. There are options. As long as one is honest with self, you can find those answers without having to look very far. The first step to dealing with anything is with honesty. Time and trust are variables of honesty. We don't have to live our life in fear just because we don't know something or how to deal with it. Too often we search for other things to make sense but only you can answer so much inside you. Who knows yourself better than you? If you don't know who you are, you need to take time to start some heavy soul searching. I feel in order to make it, you got to know yourself and how to deal with anything as it comes. What if you being honest all of your life and you still feel that you have not gain anything from it? Does honesty determine fate?
With honesty is there a risk to who you are with everything you come in contact? Someone once told me taught me that consistency is important because without it, you really don't know what you are doing most of the time. Same as she stated can be said about people. If they are inconsistent, you don't always have good relations with them. Perhaps she is someone who lives under consistency. How can this be perfect every time? I think she means in general that people are always being honest with what they do and what they especially do with you. I suppose the life we live blesses us with experiences to just learn. There is no rule book on anything. There is no perfect plan to handling anything. I think honesty is healthy for self because you don't have to live with a bad conscience. Sure being honest will sometimes produce risk or affect others but who steers your own boat in your life. I want to wake in the morning and the first thing I could ever think is, "I want to think life feels good. Each day I will lead a honest life." Doesn't matter the circumstance because the days we have are days to have truth. Trust starts with honesty. It's like walking with your honesty and knowing you will always do what fits with this trusting in yourself.
