The truth serves everyone, even it doesn’t seem that way at first. By speaking your truth, you honor yourself as well as the other person. It’s not always easy sharing the truth of how you really feel with another. But it’s essential if you are to grow, be fulfilled and have real relationships. Honest communication frees you and frees the other. When you withhold, it creates a blockage in your relationship and deeper intimacy is blocked. The truth is the greatest gift you could give yourself or another.
