Practice What You Preach— Only It’s Not That Easy.


Yes, it isn’t that easy to follow what you tell others to do. But not impossible; especially when you know everything will turn out right. Nevertheless, the prospect of being that truthful is downright scary.

I know I keep on shouting about how you should be clear about your actions/words, and never let anything deviate you from the ‘right’ path – but what if by being that truthful, you’ll hurt someone really precious, although for a short period. What if you’re scared they won’t love you the same? What if you don’t want it to happen at all?

The choice is hard to make, that I know; but I have to make it. And I have decided to tell the truth (no I haven’t murdered anyone), and let the chips fall where they may. Why so? I’ll give you some major reasons why:

1. Lying or hiding the truth come with their own consequences, which are even more macabre than the teeny-weeny stunt of blubbering the truth.Β 

2. It is just a matter of a few days that things will go back to normal, because honestly, it isn’t that big a deal.

3. Most importantly, I don’t want to do anything wrong or something that might catch up with me later. In my short life, I’ve experienced enough of nonsense to last me a lifetime, and I don’t want to handle anymore; especially not because of my own deeds.

4. I’ve chosen my way of life, and I am living it. Now I want to put it to a test whether it really works or not.

So it’s decided– on Wednesday, I’ll take the plunge. I have to.

You know, two years back was a very depressing time for me. It was like a black hole – a one way trip, from where there was no coming back. But my parents pulled me out of that place, and I can never thank them enough for it. But I know I’d hurt them a lot back then, and I don’t want to do it again.

Hence, this resolve. I’ll surely share my experience here [probably on Thursday, since I’ll be too preoccupied on Wednesday]. I really hope it works out – and then I’ll tell you what this was all about [after which, I’m sure you’ll laugh your head off]. But please wish me luck!

Going to prepare myself now. Do send in the good wishes. I need them. Really.

Peace.

  1. Love this post (: “Yes, it isn’t that easy to follow what you tell others to do. But not impossible; especially when you know everything will turn out right. Nevertheless, the prospect of being that truthful is downright scary.” Great quote right there..

  2. I might be doing a similar post here pretty soon. πŸ˜› But I can relate; I’ve been thinking about how easy it is to tell others they should do this and that but not do it yourself. I always say that people should be upfront and honest, especially when it comes to the times when lying wouldn’t matter in the long run–ya know, those little white lies. Pointless. However I catch myself telling white lies. I need to work on that.

    Good luck. πŸ™‚

    • I’m waiting for it.! πŸ˜‰
      Yes, and once you tell a lie, you have to put up with the consequences for a long time- which isn’t very pleasing, you know.
      Thanks!
