Default Language of Letting Go - June 2014

Quote:
Sunday, June 1, 2014

You are reading from the book The Language of Letting Go

Directness

We feel safe around direct, honest people. They speak their minds, and we know where we stand with them.

Indirect people, people who are afraid to say who they are, what they want, and what they're feeling, cannot be trusted. They will somehow act out their truth even though they do not speak it. And it may catch everyone by surprise.

Directness saves time and energy. It removes us as victims. It dispenses with martyrdom and games. It helps us own our power. It creates respectful relationships.

It feels safe to be around direct, honest people. Be one.

Today, I will own my power to be direct. I do not have to be passive, nor do I need to be aggressive. I will become comfortable with my own truth, so those around me can become comfortable with me.
It is okay to speak my mind it. It isn't so much what I say it but how I say it. Words can cut and tear apart or they can soothe and calm.

As they say, "What needs to be changed with in me and my attitude." I try to be direct and say what I mean, according to my truth. It may not be the same as that of others, and that is okay, that is their truth.
