"There's more to the truth than just the facts."
~ Author Unknown ~
Lies imprison us. Being dishonest with ourselves or others blocks us behind walls of deception, and we become unreachable. Others who love us may call us on our falsehoods, but we raise our walls higher in defense. And maybe we feel safe behind the walls, but we are not free.
Freedom comes from honesty and sincerity and authenticity, from see-through living and the confession of our wrongs. So let's stop pretending that our lies serve us in some way. They do not. They alienate us from the very connections that we need the most.
I have the courage to be honest.
