“Your health is bound to be affected if, day after day, you say the opposite of what you feel, if you grovel before what you dislike, and rejoice at what brings you nothing but misfortune.”– Boris Pasternak

No matter where you are, what you do, if you want to make peace with your soul, your life, your health, you must live your values. You must work your values. They are who you are. Without your values, you are nothing.

If you want people to love, respect, follow you, you must live your values. Don’t say one thing and do another. Don’t celebrate what is hurting you. And don’t rejoice at what brings you pain. Don’t do it. If you do, you will never know your true self. Do you want to be a stranger in your own body?
