Often our issue isn’t the truth, it’s that we take another’s “truth” personally… or they take our “truth” personally… so instead of being purely genuine, sharing our raw thoughts and feelings, as they come, as they are, we temper them. It’s easier, and sometimes clouded, in an illusion that we can control an outcome or another’s reaction or experience by altering the truth… Truth cannot be suppressed. The truth isn’t always easy to hear, to share, or to bear, but it’s the only way to live life fully. A lot of pain and suffering would be eliminated if people were free to just be, completely who they are, without limitation, judgment, or conditions… Feelings aren’t right or wrong, they are simply our experience. What we do with feelings can lead to perceived “wrong” actions, but my guess is a lot of that wouldn’t happen if we could experience our feelings for what they are first… If you can’t be your true self, experience life authentically, then you aren’t really living. © Jodi Healy
