Going Back on My Word.
This is What I Love about Blogging:
People, from all walks of life, can see my mistakes, my confusion, and my high points. That being said, Here's my first retraction. I previously said, in one of my podcast episodes, that being well was simple (or something to that effect). Yep - I was wrong. It's not simple. As a matter of fact, it's one of the toughest things to do, and this is true for one simple reason: Being truly well requires an individual to be wholly honest with themselves.
- We lie about going to work because we enjoy it.
- We lie about the people we love and don't love.
- We lie about what we care about vs. what we don't care about
- We lie about our true desires.
Let's say we decided to come clean and tell the truth about the above-mentioned things:
- We figure out what job we enjoy, and do it much better with more passion, which leads to congruency between our internal and external states.
- We tell her we don't love her, and she's now free to find the one she does love. Instant enhancement in quality of life.
- We are truthful about what we inherently care about. We triage these things, and it helps us focus.
- We see our true, sometime deep and dark desires, and it shows us who we really are.
Simply put: True wellness is the congruent state between our physical existence and our 'authentic' self.
