Agreeableness

I think I sit high in the scale of agreeableness, and this isn’t always a good thing. I find it really hard to say no to people a lot of the time, and sometimes I don’t let my true opinion out for fear of offending someone.

Not letting your true opinion out is a recipe for disaster. It’s an easy way for you to be pushed over, and may lead to resentment. Best to stand firm over your beliefs, even if it means discomfort in having to say no, and even if it means offending people. It’s ok you know, they’re just getting their feelings hurt, it’s part of being human!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Hi, I’m Tim Bunting AKA the Kiwi Yamabushi, a New Zealander who became a Yamabushi Ascetic in the Dewa Sanzan mountains of north Japan. I’m part of the Yamabushido team, and we host life-altering Yamabushi training on the Dewa Sanzan (website link). People come to us for the ultimate mindfulness experience, to reach the next level, or simply connect with nature and themselves.


I’m on a mission to summit all 100 Famous Mountains of Yamagata Prefecture to spread the splendour of this fabulous location, and in dedication to all those who lost their lives out in nature, including my father.


On my daily blog I post thoughts of a practicing Yamabushi that I hope people can use to better themselves and live as fulfilling a life as possible.

Tim.
