Hurt me with the truth, but never comfort me with a lie.
Truth is the one thing that hurts and heals at the same time.
Truth about ourselves, who we really are, truth about the world around us and the people we love, is not always easy to face.
But, painful or soothing, until we as individuals learn to tell ourselves the truths, we can not be our true selves to the world around us..
Sometimes we allow people to continue having a perception of us that we know is not true but just because its a great look,we let it it go on. what happens is that we then allow ourselves to be forced to keep up this appearance, what we wear,what we say or do and it becomes exhausting because that is not who you are!
And when they find out the true you, these same people that praise you are brutal! people will love you today and hate you tomorrow,that is a fact! But trust me love, you’d rather they love or hate you in your TRUTH!
If you do not tell the truth about yourself, you can not tell it about other people.
As long we refuse to come to terms with the truth about us we will keep blaming the world for our failures,our disappointments and mistakes!
We will keep looking AROUND us instead of WITHIN us for reasons why something went wrong.
One of the reasons we sometimes can not bring ourselves to face the truth is because we are afraid that the true us, somehow is not perfect enough to fit the narrative that the world around us forces us to conform to.
But as we accept this hard truths let us be careful not to turn it against our own selves, the truth should free us to be our best not put us in bondage of self hate.
Be kinder to yourself and then let your kindness flood the world
Tell yourself the truth in the kindest way possible- Nancy Gabriel
When we learn to be kind to ourselves, we are kinder when we tell others the truth too.. because a lot of times when we tell others the truth we do it maliciously and call it tough love! the truth looses its purpose when we use it against people!
