Self-improvement comes through self-awareness. Self-destruction comes when you’re unwilling to face reality. –Marala Scott

  The hardest thing about a friendship is that we want to be able to trust our friend with everything we share. Along with trust, we automatically have the tendency to expect friends to agree with our viewpoint whether it’s right or wrong. With a passive, and tearful voice, or angry insistence we seek support for our negative actions when deep inside, the real truth lies unrevealed. We know leaving out the whole truth will undoubtedly make their opinion biased and the problem with that is what we want isn’t friendship. Bullying, forcing, or tricking someone into agreeing with everything we feel or think like a continual support system, isn’t healthy.  In actuality, what is it you want them to support, the truth or you? Having people around to fill your need of being right is like having people on payroll with no input in how the company runs. Take a note from some of the most successful companies and welcome constructive input. If you want to hear what you need to, instead of what you want, select strong, positive, independent thinkers, as friends. We all need to hear things no one else is willing or cares to tell us. Self-improvement comes through self-awareness. Self-destruction comes when you’re unwilling to face reality. The truth may hurt but accepting a positive solution strengthens.

  1. I grew up in the 1980’s, no world wide web, no blogs…limited access to wisdom. This is what makes your blogs so powerful to me. How many people need someone to tell them the truth? How many people need to be challenged to take responsibility for their own change? How many people need personal development, self awareness(where it doesn’t involve a mirror, but looking in their interior) and for self improvement to be outlined for them?
    Your not just a positive voice, yours is a powerful voice…thank you for these blogs!

  9. This is among the many good reasons why I keep heading back to this blog site. This blog post is a wealth of ideas and I can’t wait to work on utilizing them. I like how it is visible that you made a lot of time and effort in research. I hate it when I read on postings that are 550 words long but are deficient in substance.

  12. This so true. Hearing what we want vs. what we need to hear helps you to move forward with what ever situation you are dealing with. I remember so clearing when friends and colleagues put me in my place by telling me the truth. This has helped me to be a better person and I am sitll looking to improve in this area! Thanks Marala!

  13. I think our definition of a good friend is someone that will support us no matter what and tell us what we want to hear. But thats not a good friend…because thats what everyone else will tell us. We need that close friend thats able to tell us when we are wrong at times, tell us what we need to hear, and just be honest with us. Thats what a good friend is. 🙂 Thank you!!
