When you sit back and think about it, have you ever thought about what speaking your truth looks like to you?
For some it can mean wearing their hair pink, saying what it is on their mind at the moment or even choosing to listen to a certain style of music.
Speaking something does not always have to be in the literal sense. As humans we communicate nonverbally as well.
When I think about speaking my own truth I think about being my true authentic self, my RAW self, and the one I want everyone to know and understand. The one that I may the hide from the world. I believe in order to start living and experiencing life, there came a time where hiding my true authentic self had to stop. I needed to be the real me and I wanted people to know the real me, the one quirky girl who likes alternative rock as equally as dancehall and jazz. I find that many people struggle with this, only showing a part of themselves to the world and hiding the rest.
I think we should stop this.
We all have so many different forms of beauty inside of us that need to be unleashed. I believe that when you speak your truth you are showing yourself one of the greatest acts of love you can. Allowing yourself to be in your truest form, your most perfect form.
If you decide to be yourself and people around you start leaving or acting funny just know they were only meant to be in your life for that time and that other people will come along to accept you as you.
It’s time to start living for you and not for others. I know it may seem overwhelming but try taking it step by step.
Ways To Start Speaking Your Truth
You can start with saying what’s really on your mind and not what everyone expects you to say.
You can start listening to the music you really like even when your friends are around.
You can wear that outfit you want to rock but afraid of what others may think.
You can express to your family your own religious and political views instead of what you may have grown up with.
Taking it step by step in this fashion makes it seem less difficult and daunting.
How do you speak your truth? What ways is this expressed? What's stopping you from speaking your truth?
