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.”
It is your responsibility to make yourself happy. If you are not happy with yourself, check your thoughts. Ask yourself, “What am I thinking about? Why am I thinking about this thing? Is it the right thing to be thinking about right now? Are my thoughts helping me? Are they hurting me?”
Life is too short for negative thoughts.
If you think negative thoughts, you will get negative results. If you focus on negative things, you will never attract positive things into your life. When things are not going well in your life, according to Anne Frank, “At such moments I don’t think about all the misery, but about the beauty that still remains. … Go outside, to the country, enjoy the sun and all nature has to offer. Go outside and try to recapture the happiness within yourself; think of all the beauty in yourself and in everything around you and be happy.”
