What Is Your Truth?
Not the shit you’ve been told.
Not the shit you read.
Your actual truth?
My truth is not your truth.
And that’s cool.
So what do you believe?
What do you believe about God?
What do you believe about Sex?
What do you believe about Family?
What do YOU care about? Not what you think you’re supposed to care about. What do you truly care about?
I can lie and say I care about animals. I can lie and say I care about recycling. I can lie and say I cared that it was the Queen’s birthday last week (even though we couldn’t even get a bank holiday lol). I can even lie and say that I care about YOU; not YOU as a collective but YOU as an individual. But the truth is I don’t.
I am not selfish; that much I know. And I am not going to begin to list the reasons why I don’t think I am, because to be honest whatever reason I give isn’t going to be good enough.
I legitimately genuinely don’t give a damn about what your truth is.
I care about what my truth is.
I don’t share my truth to try and sway your mind.
I share what I share so people know my truth and don’t expect anything else from me.
It’s so important to be raw, to be real.
But not the ‘real’ that people are pretending to be.
Like seriously real. Like bloody authentic.
Like yourself! Basically.
Life should just be about being authentic to yourself.
If you truly think about it, this is how Jesus was. No matter what came his way, opposition, praise, betrayal – he stood in his truth. He was himself despite people accusing him of being somebody else and ultimately he won at life!
When I think about this and look back at my life, it is so clear to me that every single ‘win’ in my life has been because I have been authentically myself, and every single ‘loss’ I have had is because I have been fearful to be myself.
And I am not one to believe in coincidences.
Everything happens for a reason.
If you gain from my blog then great, but if you don’t, that’s cool too. Honestly.
I cannot please everyone.
And no this is not a Monday morning rant!
I just get so annoyed with people who are so concerned about pleasing everybody else but themselves. And what tends to happen is that these people become embittered and complain. And complaining doesn’t add any value whatsoever.
No one really cares about your problems as much as you do.
So be real.
Know your truth.
Know your REAL truth and stop lying.
Being real, raw and relevant gets you results.
It gets you results in your family.
It gets you results in your relationships and it freaking gets you results in life.
It is that simple man.
And to be honest I am not sure why it has taken me this long in life to a) not only realise this but b) put it into action and start living it and proclaiming it.
I don’t want you to feel that I begrudge you because I don’t.
I can’t judge you.
But what I do know is that YOUR truth will always be your greatest advantage in life because the world is starving for truth. It really is.
And if this post can make just one person become more true to themselves – then I have accomplished everything I have set out to do.
So, yeah lets just tell the truth and share our truth rather than sharing bullshit.
As my brother would often say, “Do you boo boo”.
Have a fantastic Monday!!!
