The Truth shall set you free!
I'd rather know the truth, no matter how bad or hurtful the truth may be. Sometimes the truth hurts, sometimes it stings a little, sometimes it feels truly devastating. But I'd rather feel the hurt, the sting, the devastation than feel a fasle sense of security or happiness only to find out later it was a lie.
I welcome the truth. It generates trust and a feeling of power – I choose how to live my life including how I respond to people and situations.
And if my husband says my favorite jeans make my butt look big, I say "Too bad, I'm wearing them anyway."
