My relationships with others help to define my quality of life. My loved ones deserve my openness. Our bond grows stronger each time we are honest with each other.
I strive to be transparent with my friends and family. When their actions hurt me, I let them know how I truly feel. I open a discussion that leads to resolution. I am able to achieve inner peace after constructive dialogue.
Telling others how I feel teaches me to stand up for myself. Although I avoid confrontation, I believe it is important to defend what I believe in.
Sometimes the underhanded behavior of coworkers causes me to feel disappointed. I let them know that their actions cause me to think differently of them. Some experiences allow me to see the true nature of others I interact with.
I also share with others when their gestures have a positive impact on me. I recognize the importance of expressing gratitude to others for their efforts at kindness.
Today, I realize that when I share my feelings with others, it has a positive impact on both of us. Expressing my thoughts, opinions, and feelings leads to a free mind and true inner peace. I am committed to being honest about my feelings
