Speaking my truth feels essential to me.
Having my voice heard and feel understood matters to me.
Whenever I try to utter words that honor my soul, mind, and heart, I freeze.
I feel this lump in my throat, and my airways are cut off.
I freeze, or I boil as the blood flow is rushing through my veins.
I know now that I can breathe myself back into calmness.
I understand that speaking my truth does not come with a deadline.
I understand that speaking my truth is done best when my emotions have dissipated.
I understand that first, I need to be in harmony with myself before being in connection with others.
I understand that when I wish the other well, demonstrate genuine compassion, they will embrace my voice.
I know they will welcome my truth as I welcome theirs.
I understand those uncomfortable emotions are a reflection of my beliefs and behaviors, not theirs.
I understand my power to go within and feel so I can release before speaking my truth.
When I am calm and posed, I love knowing that my words have so much more power than when I am boiling and angry.
I love knowing that I no longer feel insignificant or inferior when I am in my personal power as I matter in this world.
I love knowing that we are the same humanity at the core, as it is only the external appearance that divides us.
I love knowing that I do not need to impress or prove my self worth as it is a given within me.
I love knowing that people mean well and want to see me succeed at their core.
I love knowing that I also like people and wish them well and see them succeed.
My happiness does not depend on them, nor does their happiness depend on me.
I love learning how to communicate my truth with my emotions in balance.
I am excited to discover the right mix of emotions to make my message land with kindness, love, and clarity.
I love exercising in front of the mirror or visualize myself having a difficult conversation.
After a few times, I love seeing that the energy within the conversations shifts because of how I feel inside.
I love understanding the science of emotional intelligence and taking control of my life from within bears its fruits.
I love evolving and learning how to live a life aligned with my potential.
I love becoming a better version of myself every single day.
I love knowing that I can turn difficult conversations into conversations that will enhance both of our experiences.
