Honesty; a word with a lot of weight behind it. A word that causes angst amongst many of us.
Speaking honestly to people can be tough, being honest with yourself is challenging, and receiving honest feedback from loved ones can be confronting.
Today I am grateful that I am at a stage in my life where I am comfortable enough to be truly honest with myself and what I really want out of my life.
I am grateful that my friends can love and respect me enough to give me honest feedback, even when at times it hurts and the words are painful to my ears.
I am grateful that I can speak honestly to the people who are close people in my life without fear of retribution.
If you can’t be honest with your friends and family, I question the integrity of the relationship, and if you can’t be honest with yourself I question the respect you give to your true desires, and the extend of your capabilities.
Today I am grateful for all the honest and true things in my life, the things that make me whole, and the people who help me feel complete. The people who encourage me through honest feedback and trust me enough to be honest with them.
