How to Honor Yourself and Your Life Choices

We live in a world that continually tells us what to be, what to do, and how to act, and knowing how to be true to yourself, to honor yourself and your life choices can be a challenge.

When someone asks how you are, we assume that the individual does not mean the question sincerely, for it might lead to an extensive conversation. So telling them that you’re fine, even if you’re not, is the usual answer.

“The reason why human beings fail to create real connections with others is due to the fact that they are not first real within themselves. If you want your connection with another to be real, then you must first make sure that you are real in yourself, thus giving the other person a genuine ground to anchor into. People color themselves different shades that do not match their own, and then they are surprised why they fail to create lasting relationships with other people! You must be the shade that you are, because the shades that you paint on will all wash off eventually, anyway. Be the shade that you are, and attract the people that like the real hue of you.” ~ C. JoyBell C.

In an ideal world, we would stop and genuinely listen. We wouldn’t’ be afraid to be ourselves. Instead, when we answer truthfully about how we are doing, the character, the behavior we show the world, our mask, tightens. Ultimately, it turns hard to take off, even when you’re alone.

How to Honor Yourself and Your Life Choices

If you want to stay in a world that celebrates who you’re, take off the mask. It doesn’t’ mean you need to be positive all of the time. Take off the mask, honor yourself, and every single one of your life choices.

1. Embrace Your Vulnerability.

When you are your true self, you can stand up for what you need. What matters is your self-expression, and you should value your voice. It’s okay to speak for what you want, it’s okay to need things, and it’s okay not to be okay.

Telling someone you’re “okay ” when you are not, does your story and your journey a splendid disservice. To honor yourself entails accepting all aspects of your life. You should seek to thrive, not just survive. This means you should not compare or compete with anyone. Being faithful means, you are enough. It’s enough to be who you are to get what you need.

2. Choose Your Attitude in Difficulty.

You can live the life you want; you can take control of your life and you can do so when you start to honor yourself. You can start today. You can start anytime.

You can start with one day at a time by facing what happens that day. Most of us get devastated when faced with the perspective of a significant change. Even if the only thing we can change is our attitude and behaviour.

In one instant, you can grow to be a different person. When you are taking control of your mindset, you come to be able to understand what is around you. This allows you to move forward.

You can still do something that you have wanted to do, but eventually, reality sets in. Struggles and obstacles arise. When you see that the path you set didn’t work out, you set another one. You think about all the “shoulds” in your life, in living the life you have wanted to live. You should be doing this. should be doing that.

3. Do What Makes You Happy When No One Cares.

To be the best version of yourself, to honor yourself has nothing to do with your situation or success. It has everything to do with your character, behavior, want you to do when no one is looking.

To create the lifestyles you need, you have to be your real self, the person you have want to be. You can make things right, you can put the pieces together, to live authentically, character, and to honor yourself is how you get there.

Yes, It’s about using that mountain you’ve been given to show others it can be moved. It’s about doing the right thing even when obstacles appear insurmountable. It’s about taking control of yourself, being unapologetically you, Choosing your mindset in adversity, and being the best version of yourself and to create the life you want.

4. Create Your Own Identity.

Did you know you can create your sense of identity when you have a good foundation of being yourself?

No matter what happens to you, you must always be who you are.

Sometimes you may be distracted, but when you have your sense of identity, you will be able to get back to the right path. If you don’t have your own identity, you might lose yourself.

5. Be Courageous.

When you decide to take a journey that goes against the crowd, it takes a lot of courage. The reason why a lot of people take the broadway is that it’s easy.

It’s effortless to follow the crowd. But it is more of a challenge when you create your sense of identity and staying loyal to yourself. This challenge of always being true to yourself takes a significant amount of courage and inner strength. No matter the challenges you face, you will know how to handle it.

When you honor yourself, you are brave. 

When you acknowledge that you can honor yourself, you tell the whole world that you can until you believe it too. The steps are quite easy, and you are worth it.

It is all about the passion that is your fuel and the purpose that leads your every action.

Always Honor Yourself!

When you honor yourself, you own the road you walk your own. When you live your life for you and not just faking it till you make it, you can let go of what you don’t need. This clarifies and pushes purpose to you, dwelling for something greater than you.

You will discover that making decisions based on what brings you closer to your goals, will help you achieve your success with each step. It will help you live the life you want and it will also allow you to enjoy the process.

No matter what people say about you, you must always honor yourself. Don’t allow anybody to decide how to live your life. You can do better by encouraging yourself and staying loyal, no matter the challenges you face.
