.After all,we are safe with that group of people,we are secure in their love.
But here's the thing,my friends:If you save the best of your honesty for just a few select ones,two things are going to happen to you:
- You'll confine and restrict yourself from having meaningful,honest dealings with most of the people in your life.You'll surround yourself with walls that will close in on you in a claustrophobic world of your own making.And you'll deprive yourself of the amazing opportunitiy that life offers to us to make meaningful connections with every human being we get to meet and interact with on this planet.
-You'll get so used to not being truthful that it will become difficult or plain impossible for you to be so even with the ones that you love and crave to be intimate with.Because ultimately the way we are with someone is the way we are with everyone and the way we are with ourselves.
If you start being totally truthful and honest,after the initial shock and bewilderment,people will begin responding in the same way.Bridges of communication will be built and there will be light and love exchanged in most of your dealings with fellow human beings.You'll make more friends,ones that are drawn by your honesty and openness.The people in your life that are still bogged down by deceit and the need to manipulate will start leaving your life en mass and for good.
A huge burden will be lifted off your shoulders.You'll even feel better physically and become more sexy.All the life force and energy that was required of you to keep pretences and ''innocent lies'' at place will be finally freed to be used in more meaningful pursuits,like your dreams and aspirations.You'll even start getting telepathically closer to people. And you'll attract certain people in your life that are on the same honesty wave length.You'll form powerful,meaningful connections with those people as you constantly challenge each other for more honesty and truth.They'll become your best friends or your mentors or your protegees or your soul mates or your spiritual guides.And since the quality of our lives largely depends on the quality of our relationships,your whole life will be transformed.Just because you've raised your honesty levels.
A word of warning here:by honesty I don't mean those two below mentioned things:
a.Being rude or insensitive. Honesty should not be confused with insensitivity.You don't go about offending other people.When I suspect I may offend people,I either shut up and wait for a more suitable opportunity to talk or just keep my thoughts to myself.
b.The too-much-of -a good thing syndrome.Being honest and truthfull is one thing,orverloading people with too much information they couldn't care less about is another.Don't confuse being honest with being a bore,use your discretion.
As Penelope Tunk said in this moving post:
''So today, when I have a natural instinct to keep something a secret, I think to myself, “Why? Why don’t I want people to know?” Because if I am living an honest life, and my eyes are open, and I’m trying my hardest to be good and kind, then anything I’m doing is fine to tell people.
That’s why I can write about what I write about on this blog.
And when you think you cannot tell someone something about yourself, ask yourself, “Really, why not?”
Love,peace and honesty
