Inner Growth Thought of the Day: Compromises and Expressing Yourself From The Heart
Expressing yourself from the heart involves an ongoing series of compromises as you search for that harmonious blend between expressing your heart’s essence and doing it in a “language” others can understand.
From the beginning of your inner growth journey and before embarking on it (or even for those who never embark on it) the compromises you face as you look to express yourself to others brings questioning and conversations that lead you to look within for that optimal solution in the moment.
Here are some ways to work with compromises and expressing yourself from the heart through inner growth.
- In situations that you are contemplating throughout the week, think of two or three different perspectives you know of and think of how they would be talking about the exact same situation. Then test speaking about the situation in this same way, but without losing how you feel about the situation.
- Make a list of two to five compromises you make daily to express yourself to others. Next to each write if you’re in sync with this compromise or not and how this compromise helps you to express yourself in a way that doesn’t lose your genuine heart-felt message or the understanding of it.
- Look back at the year and the compromises you’ve made; list which ones taught you something about you and which ones taught you something about others, and how this gained knowledge helped your compromise and express yourself from the heart.
