To walk your talk is to have your actions match your words. If you are a parent, a friend, a counselor, a nurse, or anyone else that serves as an authority, you have the option to walk your talk. That is, if you advise others in a way that hopes to benefit their lives, and yet do not follow your own advice, you do not walk your talk. If the standards you hold others to, is different than your own standards, you do not walk your talk. No one is immune from the pain and disappointment of life. Yet we all have the options to confront or avoid. Those who walk their talk are honest about their experience and their feelings, and take full responsibility for addressing the issue. No one said it is easy to be honest, only necessary if you want to earn the respect of others. Learn to live your life from a place of honesty and integrity. If you said that you would do it, do it. Keep your promises and commitments. Walk your talk.
