Believe Me

13 Feb

Life is filled with all kinds of experiences. If we make a bad decision and create a big mess, we may be embarrassed and try to do something, anything to get out of it. Everyone gets tangled up from time to time, and if we’re wise, when we bungle something, we can admit the error and then do what’s needed to correct the situation. But if we want to hide what’s happened, we may choose to lie about it instead. If those around us don’t believe us at first, we may lie again, louder and with more passion, hoping that somehow, the ruse will prevail. Holding onto a lie and refusing to admit the truth changes nothing. It only prolongs the agony and stress of the situation. Truth is the most powerful thing in life and will always rise. Trying to hide it, change it, or deflect away from it may work in the short term, but in time, everything will be revealed. And when all the facts are evident, we will be accountable not only for the original error, but the dishonesty we displayed after the fact. We are what we do, and those around us will decide if they can trust us by the decisions we make. If we try to manipulate the truth and deceive them moving forward, it will be difficult to make strong and lasting connections with those around us. Things are going to go wrong from time to time. We’re going to make mistakes. It’s the nature of life. We can stand strong even when we falter, admit what’s happened, and work to fix any developing problems. There is enough courage and wisdom inside us to find the best way forward. By trusting ourselves, and those around us, we can proceed with clarity and confidence that we will succeed.

It’s possible to fool others from time to time. We can tell half-truths that advance our cause, and when things are going wrong, keep secrets about what’s really happening. In an effort to look more successful, we can tell only the good parts of the story and keep the problems to ourselves. We’re entitled to privacy regarding our personal lives, but if others are involved, it’s important to be completely truthful about everything. Sometimes there will be problems but they don’t mean we aren’t capable. Every goal is possible, even if the road to get there is filled with trouble and complications. We are strong and powerful, and can accomplish anything we desire.

Life is all about learning. We can only know the information that’s available to us at any time. If things change and the road we’re on gets blocked, we can change direction and start again. Every step teaches us something new and we take all the facts we gain as we progress forward with us. Making a mistake teaches us what doesn’t work, and helps us find success. We can trust ourselves to choose wisely and in time, reach every destination.

Today if you’re embarrassed by a mistake you’ve made and want to hide it from those around you, be confident. Nobody is perfect and mistakes do not define you. Admit the error and then do what is needed to correct the way forward. There is greatness inside you. Step forward with clarity and confidence. You are amazing, and nothing will keep you from success.
