It’s Time to Pull Back the Curtain!
If you have desires you’re afraid to share with anyone – personal, professional, sexual or otherwise, you’re not alone. Most of us have at least one wish we’re scared to confide for fear of feeling foolish, falling short or aiming too high. However, by keeping our hopes, fears or dreams a secret, the only thing we’re doing is ensuring they remain unattained and/or maintain quiet control over us! Here are three reasons it’s time to pull back the curtain and unveil the secret you!
1. You’re Sending the Wrong Signals!
Like attracts like. So as long as you continue to mask who you really are and what you really want, you’ll continue to find yourself grouped with people who don’t really know you, jobs that just don’t satisfy you (or offer any path toward one that does) or partners with whom you simply don’t quite fit. By being more open about what you’re after or what your issues are, however, you exponentially increase your odds of either getting to your goal – or getting over what’s holding you back! That’s because the universe has to hear what you want in order to deliver it. Positive action begets positive reaction.
2. You’re Denying Yourself Happiness
Sure, you may be trying to live up to someone else’s set of expectations for you, trying to make someone else happy by denying your desires or keeping your problems a secret. However, in doing so, you’re contributing to your own discontent, no matter how much you try to tell yourself otherwise. It may feel embarrassing to be forthright about shameful, unsettling or even unusual things about yourself, but if what you want above all else is happiness, coming clean is the only way to get it.
“Happiness is not something you can expect other people to give you. Happiness comes from within yourself. Happiness is a choice.” – Rivers ext. 5273
3. You’re Creating the Wrong Future
You know the old saying that life is what you make of it. Nothing could be more true. By letting fear of the unknown keep you from expressing yourself – by going after what you want or opening up about what you need – you’re not only blocking true satisfaction, you’re increasing your discontent. None of that’s to say you need to let your freak flag fly if you’re just not ready for that sort of exposure. But by taking small steps toward a more authentic existence, you’ll help guarantee that your dreams and your destiny eventually match up.
