I’ve been talking in my articles and some videos lately about knowing your truth, speaking your truth. Firs,t it was speaking your truth, and I had some people respond to that with, “But what if you don’t know what your truth is, what your feelings are?” And I’m equating truth and feelings for this video.
I’ve been talking about — in various articles — speaking your truth and from my perspective, your truth is your feelings, your collection of feelings. And expressing those feelings, I think, is important in living a more balanced, whole life. What surprised me, was that I had in my conversations some people say to me, “But what if you don’t know what your truth is? What if you don’t know what your feelings are?”
Wisdom and truth are often buried in fables, nursery rhymes, and cartoons. I found some wisdom tucked into two nursery rhymes for today. This wisdom can help you through the COVID-19 lockdown or any challenge in your life. All you have to do is think about it and apply the lessons to yourself and your situation.
People tend to fear what they don’t understand or can’t see. They so get to believing their thoughts about the situation that they then can’t imagine there is a solution, a way of overcoming the fear.
Many of my readers connected with various aspects of being a control freak that I pointed out in my article by the same name. It wasn’t surprising to hear comments about seeing how their tendencies affected them and others. Though I hear about the stress at home that’s being reported, I hadn’t stopped to think about that stress would bring out control issues: a reader pointed that out to me.
I recently wrote an article, Keep Your Values Intact. Interestingly. When I started the article it was about how we settle, settling out of fear. We settle for how we let others treat us, how we don’t stand up for our rights, ourselves, and our beliefs.
I wanted to follow up on the article Freedom From Paralyzing Fear with a story from my life. As I talk more about Freedom From Paralyzing Fear you can apply my thoughts to your life. The whole idea is to not let fear freeze you from action and a wonderful future.
