Always tell the truth, because it’s the right thing to do. Telling the truth means we will never have to doubt and question ourselves, or other people. It also means we won’t spiral into a world of deceit and it’s good for our health.
With truth, we will have trust, but without trust we may never know whether we will have truth. It takes courage to tell the truth, particularly if we think it may hurt another person’s feelings. When we don’t tell the truth, non-truths will come back on us.
But not everyone is emotionally ready to hear the truth, and that’s what makes our task difficult. It’s not that what we’re saying is wrong, but that what we’re saying is not always ready to be received.
My mum always told the truth. She would rather hear the truth than be lied to, even if hearing the truth proved difficult. But when we live without the truth, we’re in denial of what the truth is. Telling the truth can make us vulnerable and open to criticism, but it’s important to tell the truth anyway.
Truth and honesty are the epitome of life. It is what life should be about and is right because it fits in with what the universe expects of us. Truth forms the building blocks of our integrity and helps build the foundations for us to live with peace in our lives. It also helps with spiritual growth.
Having nothing to hide is much easier than hiding everything and getting caught out. Speaking our truth ultimately gives us the freedom to express and be ourselves, in a world where others may often draw comparisons with others. Instead, just be yourself.
