To Say What You Do Not Think Is To Lie To Yourself

Say what you mean. You can lie to others. But you cannot lie to yourself. If you do, it means you don’t love yourself.

No matter what, do not deceive yourelf. If things are not okay, just say it to yourself. Do not hide anything from yourself.

Let yourself know what you are going through. It takes courage to face life. And you can face it. Because you can. Joseph Joubert said, “To think what we do not feel is to lie to ourselves, in the same way that we lie to others when we say to others what we do not think. Everything we think must be thought with our entire being, body, and soul.”

The Flow

If you want to grow, you must not go with the flow.

You must face the demon within you.

You must face the task in front of you,

not going with the flow.

You must ask yourself some tough questions,

not just going with the flow.

You must always,

always question what you are doing.

You must always question yourself.

Do not just go with the flow,

question the flow.

Because life is about questioning things,

not going with the flow.

Because life is about

questioning everything.

And if you can’t question the flow,

if you can’t question the status quo,

if you can’t question why things are done the way they are done,

if you can’t question what you are passionate about,

then it is not the right flow for you.

Question the flow, then go with it.
