“Right now, can you make an unconditional relationship with yourself – just at the height you are, the weight you are, with the intelligence that you have, and your current burden of pain – can you enter into an unconditional relationship with that?”   –Pema Chödrön

Truth… can give us mix emotions.

Some truths are easier to deal with than others. Some people can’t handle the truth. Some prefer truths to be given in a “certain way”. For example, tell me face to face not over a text message. However, one thing about telling the truth… no matter how you share it, their is no sugar coating the reactions of a heart shattered, facial expressions of lost of words, validation, signs of relief and confirmation.  It sticks it where it hurts, where it loves, where it grows and where it stands.  However, everyone interpretation of the truth is different.

Below are videos of individuals sharing truths. My hope is that is sparks discussion about finding a deeper understanding of what is truth in relationships.

This blog is not here to agree with me but to spark discussion. How at times, its easier to lie than hurt individuals with the truth. Its easier to hide the things we don’t want people to know. Its easier to lie than rather deal with the consequences of the truth. However, lies and the truth  can put us in an awkward scenario lol. The difference is that the truth is the real thing and can better shape your personal and professional direction.

What are the questions you fear to ask… fear to answers… fear to address?

But most importantly, what can the truth free you from? 

And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.: John 8:32 (KJV)

How can we live an honest, healthy and positive life…
