Truth is always aligned with love. If you are finding that your self-honesty is making you feel bad, chances are you are not telling yourself the whole truth, or you have not made your self-assessment from a compassionate place. The same applies if you find yourself being critical, judgmental or condemning of others. Sometimes our commitment to being honest is really just another game our egos play in order to be nasty under the radar, so to speak. You do want to tear away the masks and get to the heart of the matter. You do want to tell the truth about yourself to yourself. But the truth feels loving, even if it is hard to hear. The truth liberates you. Work to have a new clarity about yourself, others and life. Discern the difference between half-truths and TRUTH. YOU ARE THE TRUTH.
