“Everything that you have been through should push you towards your destiny”, is the quote that keeps me going whenever I feel stuck. For the past twenty something years of my life, I have learnt so much about how life can be such a hard nut to crack. However, I did not realize that all the difficulties that I have been through have made me stronger each time. I emerge victorious no matter how badly shaped I became amidst the trials. I remember a few months ago when I made a choice to never blame myself for making mistakes especially those that I made involuntarily because I am human and I can never be perfect. Acknowledging that you are human, will save you a big deal.
So what made me make that decision? I went through an obnoxious experience|(Who knows, I might as well talk about THE it soon); that I knew would affect how I relate with my family and friends. It was worth it. Definitely. Those who know me understand that I am very indecisive but I chose to learn how to be assertive and talk about how I feel no matter what people think about me. The Bible is crystal clear about being audacious from the book of James 5:12. It says that we should let our Yes be a yes and our no be a no, or anything other than that will lead to your condemnation. I chose to talk about anything that affects the society blatantly. So, forgive me if my truth embargoes your ego. I may have been criticized or viewed as oblivious but that is how I am wired especially when it comes to talking about my truth; which is definitely the worst pill that anyone can swallow. So bitter is the pill that it cost me friendships and relationships. I am fond of saying that you should not pursue that which does not give you peace. It does not matter who is upset about your decisions. Live your life! They got nothing on you, you came to this world alone and you will return unto dust all alone. So cliché right? But would you rather be at peace. Stop doing things with the intention of pleasing others. For how long will you be trapped under that umbrella of ‘what will people think of me?’. Hey, but I am not encouraging anyone to engage in promiscuous activities if you know what I mean, just because you can. I am simply telling you to learn how to say no to anything that would compromise your values.
Let them know your truth 100%. My truth is being patently candid .What is your truth?
Until next time, BE YOU.
