Trust


Every with-hold you have from someone is a brick in the wall between you.

Do you tell the truth? What percentage of the time? 100%? Or 90%? And when you do tell the truth, do you tell 100% of it? Or 90%? And what about the truths we don't say - the "with- holds"? Even most of us with the best intentions DO NOT tell 100% of the truth, 100% of the time.
Why? We CAN'T tell the whole truth - about what we want, how we feel, what we love, what we hate, because we need people to like us, to love us, to accept us, to want to hang around us.

The irony is if we don't tell the truth, people can’t love us. The only way we can really be loved - really be accepted, is to show who we are. Only then, once you are truly seen, is it possible for someone to accept the real you.

So there it is. How do we be who we really are? How do we give people the chance to see us, to accept the "real us"? Risky, but simple: Tell the Truth.
There are risks associated with this practice. Particularly for those of us who like to stick to the comfort zone, please note that anything can happen - both negative and wonderfully positive - if you do the following but in the long run it pays to risk a little!
