How often do you mask your true feelings and behaviors simply because you believe they are unhealthy? For many of us, it is more often than we care to admit, whether it’s consciously or unconsciously. Yet, the most healthy behaviors involve being authentic and real. Your body and mind know what you need and they are there to remind you it is important to follow your authentic self. Let’s look at seven behaviors that many believe are negative, but in all actuality, they are quite healthy.
1. Feeling Lost
When we are lost in an unfamiliar city, we are forced to stay in the moment and trust our instincts. It’s not unusual for us to make amazing discoveries while trying to find our way.
However, when we are feeling lost in life, it’s a different story. Instead of hiding behind a mask of confidence, realize that this is simply a part of your life’s journey. Being lost can send you down paths that allow you to discover new things about yourself, as well as meet new people that we might have never met. Being lost isn’t permanent. It simply gives you the time you need to find your way and receive input from the world regarding what path might be best for you. In many cases, this input is what sets you on your true path.
