Examining My Own Actions

I struggle with not sharing my journey at times.

Sometimes I feel that I’m inspiring by sharing my journey.

Then at times I think I bother some folks by making them feel like I’m judging them that they’re not doing enough.

Some may feel that I am sharing something negative, that what I do is opposite of healthy.

Some may even feel that I am trying to be seen, that the message isn’t really about helping but more of placing myself on the spotlight.

A part of me feels that if I know my intentions and I get feedback on the good more than the “bad” then I should keep sharing.

Another part of me questions whether or not my ego in fact is creeping in and I’m simply trying to show off of sorts.

I already remove myself from most any circle because of negativity and I wonder if this one or two people out of many many more who give positive feedback is making me question myself for no reason.

Nevertheless, I do think is healthy to always examine ones actions to make sure the motive and results are in line with our goals.

I have people close to me that are my biggest fans and I have people close to me that are my biggest critics. I find beauty in both and I appreciate both opinions.

We can always use a boost and motivation but we can always use a reality check to make sure we’re doing what we really want to do.

It sucks at times but perception is reality and like Socrates said “the unexamined life is not worth living”.

We often go into defensive mode as soon as someone stands in a place opposite of ones opinion. Sometimes it’s useful to take a step back and find the validity in theirs. We don’t know what we don’t know, therefore we should always listen and lean in and try to gain understanding of their opinion.

Cheers,
Live Responsibly
