20 Honest Truths We All Should Be Okay with Admitting
1. “I’m lost.”
Being lost enables you to see places you never thought existed and experience moments you never thought possible. Detours and uncharted territory allow us to explore, to make substantial mistakes, and to develop the best parts of ourselves. Don’t lose hope, you’ll find your way.
2. “I don’t have the rest of my life figured out.”
Sometimes you have to welcome the unknown. You have to let life surprise you sometimes. You have to remove the spirit of pressure because you have so much time on your hands to find out what you truly want to do with your life. You can set goals, but don’t beat yourself up when they don’t always go as planned. Take a deep breath and open your eyes for a second.
3. “I feel stuck.”
There will be times when you feel like your train is not moving, when you feel like you’re under the same umbrella with the same people. Your time will come, you’ll figure out where you’ll head next and by then I’m sure you’ll have the courage to move.
4. “I’m not always strong.”
Embrace your weaknesses sweetie. You can’t be strong all the time, you just can’t. There will be moments of breakdowns and fallback, but bear in mind that those are only platforms for your comeback.
5. “Sometimes, I need someone to tell me it’s going to be okay.”
That’s acceptable, because there will be instances in our lives where we need comfort, where we need that one person to tell us we’ll make it through, that one person to motivate us to keep trying, to keep moving.
6. “I make bad choices.”
We all do. We all make bad choices and we’re only human. The thing that matters is that we try, though we fail at times, at least we tried. Now if you didn’t try, then you’re just fucking up and you need to check that because if you keep making the same choice expecting different results, that’s insanity.
7. “I fuck things over.”
We lose battles, we miss opportunities, we mess up. That’s the lesson. It’s when we have to master the art of getting up, striving harder, and being better. You can’t expect a change if you don’t start to put in the work.
8. “I hate my job.”
Leaving a job is easier said than done for some of us, and you can be one of those people who finds it hard to leave. However, hold on. One day you’ll be prepared to let that extra baggage go. It’s tough to deal with something like a job you hate that you actually need, but I promise when you are patient, you can run up out that bitch. Literally!
9. “Sometimes, I want to hit pause.”
You are entitled to take a break, you are allowed time. Please don’t forget that.
10. “I can’t please everyone.”
No one can. Understand that we are not to please other people, we are not waking up to wait upon their praises and absolutely not meant to become their “idea” of who we should be. We are born unique and we are who we want to be, we don’t need their approval on that.
11. “I don’t want to remain friends with you.”
Sometimes holding on to people does more damage than letting them go. It’s okay to move forward without the same people, especially the toxic ones, it’s okay to cut those ties and burn those bridges. You are not meant to be with the same people all your life unless they are those people who genuinely love you and your growth.
12. “I’m struggling.”
Without struggles, we’ll never be who we’re bound to be. Struggles reveal our strengths and molds us into better versions of ourselves.
13. “I’m not always brave.”
You can take off that mask you’ve been putting on every single day of your life. You can take a break from being brave, you can be honest, and admit that sometimes you’re scared, scared of another battle, scared of getting hurt, scared of life.
14. “I want change.”
Then do it. Commit to that change. Change is a great way to learn how much you can adapt and adopt new ways. It can direct you to something much better.
15. “I feel empty.”
You’re not alone in this. We feel empty because leave portions of ourselves to those we used to love. But even if we feel empty, please know that we’re not. You are never empty.
It’s one simple word, as easy to say as “yes” and yet we find it very difficult to say. Why? Because we fear. We fear their reaction when we finally say no. We fear to decline. We fear to reject, but we shouldn’t. We are granted the freedom to say no if we feel like it. So say it, say no.
17. “I’m not always happy.”
Sadness plays a major role in our lives. Happiness can not be happiness without sadness. It has its purpose. Happy days are hard to acknowledge when we don’t even know what sad days are like. The truth is, sad days make us appreciate the happy days more.
18. “I love you.”
I know it’s scary to admit love because loving is letting people get a hold of your heart. In loving, you open yourself up and allow people inside, there is beauty in that. Loving doesn’t necessarily equate to vulnerability. Loving equates to bravery.
19. “I don’t love you.”
Tell him. Tell her. Now. Don’t make them believe something false. Stop fucking people’s feelings over. Don’t let them expect something from you, especially something you cannot give.
20. “I’m beautiful. I’m handsome. I’m good enough. I’m worth it.”
Admit it, because you are. You really are. Don’t ever let anyone tell you otherwise.
