One of the ways we harm ourselves is “choosing inner discomfort over outer discomfort.”
I was listening to Glennon Doyle’s podcast “We Can Do Hard Things” and this statement stopped me in my tracks.
Like, I literally had to pull the car over and grab my notepad to write it down.
So many people talk about “living their Truth” but they make choices that silence, harm, or diminish themselves.
A client of mine reached out today to express her frustration about something. I was GLAD she reached out and told me what was happening. She transformed her inner discomfort into a conversation, a request, and a helpful suggestion for me.
Being in Integrity means “being one thing.”
When you’re not in Integrity, you’re “two things”…also known as duplicity.
The practice of noticing inner discomfort and speaking it out loud can feel vulnerable, or depending on your life’s experiences, it can feel downright dangerous.
But/and – we can’t really know ourselves OR live our Truth, if we don’t first know what we want…and what we don’t want…and SAY SO.
Tiny acts of courage…tiny steps in the direction of our Truth…
We build that muscle until the big challenges come.
And because we’re practiced at speaking our Truth…at being in Integrity (one thing), we can rise to the challenges and say what is so for us with confidence and clarity.
