A bumper sticker on a car in front of me reads: In a world of deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.
Truth heals. But how? And why? And what good does it do anyway? Plenty.
Telling the truth is about freedom. It is about joy and peace and health and living a life that is meaningful, powerful, connected, and loving. Ultimately, telling the truth is about feeling good in your own skin, unencumbered, free, and having the life that you want to live.
So why do lies so often seem nicer, tidier, easier? The truth is often uncomfortable – because so much shame and guilt are attached to it, because it has been suppressed and left unspoken for years.
