Honesty Wasn't My Policy
Being entirely honest with oneself is a good exercise. - Sigmund Freud -
I lied to myself all the time. I told myself that I was supportive of friends, I cared about other people, and I was doing my best to be the best me possible.
Of course, none of that was true. I lied to myself to make myself feel better that I was not really a good person. I knew better. I knew I could be better. But I chose to take the easy way and be very self-centered and selfish.
Therapy didn't help me. It allowed me to go on and on and on to talk about myself and my problems. Actually, I think the therapist didn't want me to get better but just to come back for another chargeable session.
So what helped change me? One word, BabbleStash. I found the app while browsing the app store and it looked interesting to me. It said it had a series of categorized questions and was essentially an online voice diary.
I decided to try it. At first, it was a little strange recording into my phone. However, as I watched my words transcribed as I answered very personal questions, it allowed me to really look at myself for who I was and who I am.
I wanted to be better. I wanted to change. I decided the first step was, to be honest with myself and my intentions. After that one key pivotal decision, I found my life and my happiness drastically improved.
BabbleStash is a critically acclaimed iPhone app that captures the essence of people and lets them share it. Selfies, Snapchats, only express the visual moment; but not what people are truly thinking or feeling. BabbleStash uses scientifically tested questions to elicit feelings, memories, ideas, goals, and dreams and easily records the responses to either be kept secret or shared.
