This Is What I Know For Sure Today:
The truth will set us free!! It is so much better to tell the truth than a fib….especially to ourselves. If we can’t be honest with ourselves, how can we be honest with anyone else. Fibbing takes a whole lot of work, sleepless nights, remembering what you said to who….and it is just easier and better to speak honestly and get it over with. It is so relaxing & peaceful to live truthfully than to keep fibbing.
I have someone in my life, who I love beyond belief and this person has a terrible problem being honest. They fib because they have low self esteem and don’t believe they matter. This person has no friends, looks ill from lack of sleep, and is not trusted by one living soul. Not one. And when I peel aways the layers of dishonesty there I find a sincerely good person. They are bright, funny, attractive, hard working, and would give you whatever you asked….but you can’t believe a word they say. I have to use boundaries very much when it comes to them or I will get myself stuck in a mess. They fib to seem like they are someone else, or things in their life are worse than they really are. This is all very typical with a person who basically is a pathological fibber. They need help and no one can make them get it. At this point they have almost lost everything and are backed into a corner. They have fibbed so often before, that now when they truly need assistance there is no one left who is willing to help them. So if you happen to have this problem do your best to get honest. First with yourself and then with others. Telling someone the truth is not always easy and comfortable but that sure beats a fib any day of the week.
Please know I love you all and I am sending you crispy Monday pink huggz.
