Your Personal Truth
It’s ok to tell the truth about what you want. I’m ready to listen and I’ll totally join you.
I just told the truth this morning.
I have no idea how to curl my hair with a curling iron/flat iron/any iron and have it stay. My stylist does it and it stays for 3 days. He teaches me how to do it and I get about 3 minutes. Mine is a baby truth but it’s a true.
Here are some other truths it’s ok for you to tell:
I am not happy here.
I am so happy here and I’m afraid if I say it, you’ll think it’s weird.
I want you to be my boyfriend/girlfriend/husband/wife/partner.
I don’t think you’re right for me.
I want to get married.
I never want to get married.
I don’t know how to get married.
I don’t know if I should get married.
I want to date you.
I like you.
I don’t know how to date.
I don’t know how to open a checking account.
I don’t know how to work my 401k.
I don’t know the best kind of shoe to buy.
I don’t know how to pick out a car.
I want a new job.
I want to start a company.
I want to quit my job.
I don’t know how to orgasm.
I love having sex this way.
I need a day off.
I need a sick day.
I need a mental health day.
Make room for your truth, the one that’s just bubbling under the surface. The one that would require you digging a little deeper, standing in your vulnerability and using your courage reserve. The fear that: someone will leave, not hear us, ignore us, and not be able to help us. It’s all a possibility. That possibility doesn’t change the truth. Bring it.
