Tell me I'm clever, Tell me I'm kind, Tell me I'm talented, Tell me I'm cute, Tell me I'm sensitive, graceful and wise, Tell me I'm perfect – But tell me the truth.
Only telling people what they want to hear and only hearing what you want to hear often leads us to a distorted view of the truth. Make a conscious effort today to be honest with yourself and honest with others. As you develop this habit of honesty, you will find it requires far less effort and yields far more peace of mind.
The sum of your word is truth, and every one of your righteous rules endures forever.
