The truth will always set you free.
I was always told, if you don’t have anything nice to say, say nothing at all.
But that can lead to suppressing & holding on to hurts & pains.
Some people just let it rip, clearing their feelings.
But that can lead to another taking poison arrows & deep wounds.
I’ve learnt to not speak your truth in the heat of the moment, but to process or sit with the emotional trigger, then speak your truth from a place within your heart. Then it is your truth from a place of wisdom & integrity, not an emotional reaction.
Words are so very powerful, they may be forgiven, but are they ever forgotten?
Truth can destroy or empower.
It’s all about the way or intent it’s delivered in & received.
Truth can be a double edged sword.
Be mindful & compassionate when you deliver your truth.
But deliver your truth you must, even if your voice is shaking.
You may not like what you hear, see or feel.
You may struggle because you don’t like to hurt, upset, disappoint or don’t like conflict.
You may struggle speaking your truth with fears of rejection, abandonment or betrayal.
You give or receive the information, then you have a choice, you get to decide to use your wonderful gift of free will.
Then the truth has set you free.
Love, light & blessings
