Reality

Thursday, June 16, 2011

Lately i have been trying to get real and stay real. it is not likely that goals can be met when reality is somewhere at a distance. It seems the more I. seek the truth and what is real the more I realize how far i have traveled from the state of truth. Lying to oneself is a pitiful thing to do and no good can come from it.

It is easy to be dishonest with oneself. It is a slippery slope. Staying in touch with others at various stages of the journey is a tremendous help even on the most difficult days. To say that I have been discouraged would be quite an understatement. By reading what others have been willing to share I see myself more clearly. I am able to see little by little what i need to do for myself and how i need to love and forgive myself.

    Hi Jackie. I agree with you. I think Spark People, being somewhat anonymous, lets us be real. The more honest you let yourself become, the easier it will be to face facts and get on the right track with better choices. Seeing how courageous others are in sharing their challenges helps us relinquish the fear, which I feel is the real driver behind dishonesty.

    Keep up the positive self talk.
