We all shy away from asking ourselves tough questions. Maybe because we are afraid of the answers. So we adopt common approaches that include burying our heads in the sand, wearing a mask and pretending like everything is ok. But who are we kidding especially as we are falling apart at the seams? To hold ourselves together, we opt for temporary plasters (e.g. food, alcohol, money, sex, drugs). But all they do is cause further problems down the line.
So you now face a crossroad. You can choose to stay the way you are or start your journey to living the authentic life you deserve? So what is it going to be? If it is later, starts by answering the following questions:
- Who am I?
- What do I really want?
- What motives and intentions are driving my actions (good, bad and the ugly)?
- What attitudes and personal beliefs do I hold on to? Are they serving me?
- What are my worst fears?
- Am I happy with the real me – the one I hide from others?
Ponder on your answers. What are the themes showing up? What area of your life do you need to be focusing on now? Whatever you do, I urge you to take action.
