Orb Posted April 23, 2022 Share Posted April 23, 2022 Posted this here, because it is the first time ive stood up for myself and quite frankly it feels weird in a good way...like im not the same person at all anymore and it just took that one step. Been realizing the True power of Honest Expression, ive realized that the quality of my life is DIRECTLY connected to the degree in which I am able to be honest with people. Everyone is willing to give me what I want, only my whole life I was never honest about what I wanted, so people gave me mixed signals...because I gave them mixed signals. In having this realization unfold, ive seen the immediate power of honest expression and clear communication, it is extremely powerful, just realized its the throat chakra holy shit! Thanks throat chakra even though you are just a thought, love you bud! Stood up for myself for the first time, stood up as in set boundaries, expressed my situation, and left the situation with the both of us moving on happily with our lives. So I had this coworker who began to cross the lines in terms of jokes and started to say hurtful stuff, I enabled him to cross my boundaries due to previous conditionings in me, I let it slide for a long time, put up with the discord. Then it hit me suddenly today that I can simply shift the quality of my life by being honest, as I mentioned earlier the quality of my life is directly connected to my ability to be honest. If I want to be treated respectfully, I simply (respectfully) ask for it if the person isnt doing so. So I ended up calling this coworker and straight up expressing that I didnt like to be told to shut up, or be the butt of jokes constantly and that I want us to communicate in a respectful/professional manner. He pretty much took it well and said "okay sure no problem(something along those lines)" and I said thank you and goodbye (politely of course). Gotta say, I feel weird in a good way, so weird to see that people do indeed respond to my honest expression as long as I am treating them how I want to be treated!
