I had a discussion the other day with friends. The topic was honesty. No white lyes no arranging the truth to accommodate other people’s feelings.
Someone boiled the answer into this ;
When you say no, mean it, and when you say yes, mean it.
It is just as simple as that! If we stop saying yes to things that we don´t want to do we feel better about our selves.
Many of us , including me had to learn how to say no. I said yes long after my schedule was full and my days were so stressful that I woke up in tension.
But what I realized was that the yes has to be true too. Not only did I have to learn to say no in a gentle, loving manner. I need also to learn to mean the yes.
The funny thing is that my gut-feeling tells me if I am sincere about my yes and no.
If I´m not truthful to my self, my physical body reacts. The second thoughts start bothering me, the doubts, the anxious feeling in my stomach. Amazing isn´t it?
