“the truth will set you free”. I really believe this to be true. Honesty is always something that is necessary to have any type of relationship. I believe that if you are honest, it displays that you’re more serious about the relationship (even if it’s just a friendship). Being able to communicate openly and honestly is a really big deal, because it’s what brings people close. And I’m not saying that you have to tell everyone your business. I’m just saying that in order to maintain healthy relationships, honestly needs to be a core value. You deserve to have people in your life who love you, who care about you and who are honest with you. But you also need to make sure that you’re that way with others. You cannot always change the situation, but you can change how you act and how you react. Be honest with yourself and really feel your feelings. Express how you feel- it does make you vulnerable but it really brings people closer. The first relationship I was really able to put this into practice was with my roommate Kaitlyn. Instead of making small talk, we talked about deep issues. Our fears, our dreams, little details that make us who we are. It has allowed for us to communicate effectively and really become very close. I accept her for who she is and she accepts me for me. This would have probably happened, but us communicating openly and honestly from the beginning really allowed for a great friendship to form. So I’m telling you- just be honest. Be upfront. Be vulnerable. Because you will learn so much more about yourself when you put yourself out there. Trust in the process because whatever is meant to happen will happen! Just be brave!!
as the first day of the new year comes to an end, I just wanted to touch on a few of my goals for the year (which hopefully inspire you).
- be as honest as possible
as a whole I’m a pretty honest person. It is my goal though, to be completely honest. With myself and with others. Be honest about what I truly want in life. I want to be the most authentic version of myself and live life to the fullest. I believe doing this will help me grow as a person and help my relationships as well. as the saying says, honesty is always the best policy.
- take care of my body
resting, relaxing and working out are some things I want to focus on. I want to eat healthier as well. There is always room for improvement for self-love practices. I want to love myself the most!
- practice good hair care
I love my hair. and I want to take care of it to the best of my abilities. by this I mean I will deep condition weekly, use the LOC method, and always do my hair before I go to sleep. My hair is getting pretty long and it’s my goal to keep it as healthy and happy as possible.
