Do what you do what works for you.
Be truthful with you so that you can stand in your power. So that you can know what works for you and what doesn't work for you.
Hi, it's Sarah Emond with Essence Healing and today I want to talk about being truthful with yourself.
Now, most people when I say that say, "I'm always truthful with myself." And I call BS on that.
Because we lie to ourselves all the time because we don't want to admit that things aren't working or that things aren't perfect for us.
I had somebody the other day who is talking about her current work situation and she was complaining about it over and over on and on and on. All the issues she was having.
And I asked the question, "Is this really what you want to do?" and she said "Yes." I said, "But you hate your job. Is there going to be any different if you switch and go work someplace else? Aren't you doing the same stuff?"
And when we really got down to the conversation what it came down to was she didn't want to admit that she didn't like what she was doing, because she had spent the past three or four years whatever it was going to college to learn how to do this.
Because she thought she was going to love it. And now that she's in it and she's seen what the day-to-day aspects of it are, she realizes she doesn't like it.
But she won't admit it to herself because she felt like if she admitted that this was something that she did not like and did not want to do anymore, that #1 she was a failure. #2 that she wasted all those money and time and effort for something.
But as we started talking about it, I was able to show her that she's just going to be miserable for the rest of her life if she keeps working this way. That doesn't mean that she can't maybe find something different in the same field or try a different aspect of this job.
But the specifics that she had set out for herself: "I'm going to school to become this, and then I'm going to go do this." And she did it. She's not happy. She wouldn't admit it. She kept blaming it on somebody else. It was the place that she worked, it was her co-workers, it was this, it was that. And so she wasn't being truthful.
And when you're not truthful with yourself than you can't ever fix the problem. You can't ever address it. You have to have that awareness, that understanding of what the problem is. What's causing you to feel good or bad. It doesn't matter.
It doesn't always have to be a bad thing. You can be very truthful about I love my job - even if it's something that maybe somebody else in your life thinks isn't a good job for you. Who cares?
Do what you do what works for you. Be truthful with you so that you can stand in your power. So that you can know what works for you and what doesn't work for you.
If I'm not truthful with myself and I don't understand about myself and where I'm at…I did this for a while in my younger years. I would do whatever they said. They said, "Oh I think you do this." Whatever their advice was I would follow it. And it wasn't always helpful. It wasn't always a fit for me, because I didn't look at my truth.
Once I started looking at my truth...now when they give me that advice, some of it is great advice, don't get me wrong.
I take it because it fits my truth.
Other times they give me advice and I'm going, "That is not my truth. That's not me." And I'm able to make my decisions and make commitments to myself because of that.
It's something I encourage you to look at and you to do.
Are you truthful with yourself?
And if you are, do you understand the truth of that for you?
I hope that you can take this information and you can apply it to your life right now and that it helps you to make better decisions and to understand yourself on a deeper level.
If you feel like you need some help figuring out what your truth is and understanding who you are, I would love to work with you.
So please get in contact with me and schedule a session. We will get down into finding your truth for you.
Thanks for watching! I hope you have a great day!
