What I know for sure is that speaking your truth is the most powerful tool we all have. ~ Oprah Winfrey
What do you speak every day? Not what is your native language but what and how do you speak. What words do you use in the workplace, with your friends and family?
Are you authentically you in your conversations with others? Are you speaking your truth? Or, are you saying what you believe the person wants to hear from you?
At times you may find yourself being very careful what you say to someone. You don’t want to offend or upset the person. You pick and choose your words. You aren’t necessarily lying to the person yet you are not being completely truthful either!
I’m sure there have been times when you were very concerned about what to say to a person. Perhaps you weren’t sure how they would take what you had to say. You felt they may not hear what you were saying with the message that you intended.
Communication can be tricky at times. Everyone comes from a different perspective because of their own life experiences. How you say something and your body language can also greatly impact how the message is received.
Writing is another form of speaking. In the current times, it can be even trickier than speaking with someone. Tests and emails can be easily misread. Something you might want to consider when you are “speaking with writing."
Your health can be affected by what you do and do not say. When what you say does not line up with your truth, it can affect your physical, mental and emotional wellbeing. The stress of not speaking your truth can be obvious as well as very subtle. Either way, it still causes stress!
When you speak your truth from your heart, it is beneficial not only for you but also the person you are speaking with. When you first speak about something and you speak your truth with love, there is no chance later that you will have to remember the “half-truth” you told earlier. There is stress caused simply by trying to remember exactly what you told the person in the first place. Best to speak your truth!
You should feel comfortable speaking your truth no matter what situation you find yourself in. No matter what you feel or say about something, it will not “line up” with everyone. So why not speak truth as you know so it is good for you?
Find someone you trust that you can practice speaking your truth in a “safe space”. A place where you know that you will not be judged or criticized for what you have to say about something. Speak from your heart in a kind way knowing that this is healthy for you on so many levels.
Telling someone the truth is a loving act. ~ Mai Pancoas
People come in and out of our lives. Wouldn’t you rather spend your life with people who honor you and your opinion even if they don’t agree with you? Love yourself enough to be true to yourself. Then take that truth and speak with others, in love, with love.
Wouldn’t it be a much different world if we all would speak our truth in the language of love?
