What flaw that I hide from others can I reveal?
On my path to self-discovery, I came across a book that was instrumental in changing how I perceived myself and others. That book, is don Miguel Ruiz’s The Four Agreements. The third agreement has been my biggest challenge because it happens to be a flaw of mines.
Don’t make assumptions.
I’m a person who can really be “in my head” a lot; over analyzing and creating scenarios that doesn’t exist. This has also caused me to completely judge a book by its cover and stopped me from taking risks in life. I believe having someone aware that I can make assumptions from the minor (the office cafeteria food is gross) to the major (you’ll struggle if you move out of state), is a benefit. Being aware of it myself has allowed me to look at how I think of a circumstance or person and say to myself, “Do you know that for a fact, or are you making assumptions?”
I make unhealthy assumptions sometimes.
Tarot Card of the Day: Death (one of my favorites). We spend most of our lives denying death altogether…so when this card appears, it’s easy to get frightened or to think it’s “bad”. Don’t let the drama of the card distract you from the message: something in your life needs to end. It needs closure. This will happen voluntarily or involuntarily. Either way, you will feel a positive transformation begin after the initial forms of suffering have past.
