Today a friend called me. He was having some problems coping with a relationship that he recently ended. I am always flattered when people take the time to pick up the phone to ask me for advice. I do feel that I give effective advice. But, as I also explained to my friend at the end of our conversation, it's taken me a long time to learn how to take my own advice.

My friend explained that he was a weak-minded person and that fact that he stills lives with his ex, was making it extremely hard with them not being together. I felt like the call was a twist of fate. For one, because this friend randomly crossed my mind this morning during my workout and two, I had only recently came to experience the advice I was not dispensing.

I explained to my friend that the key to personal contentment was believing in your own strength. My own recent personal struggles have reminded me why I like myself. And I have vowed to never let myself get that far away from my core again. But, it took me desiring to be a more content person before it clicked.

My friend said he felt better at the end of the conversation.

I was glad to help.

A few weeks ago, I came across a very compelling video blog entry. It was about knowing your own truth. That concept felt very compelling to me. Anyway, it struck a cord with me. Check it out:
