We have all heard the saying, "the truth shall set you free". And, I wholeheartedly agree that that is true. When we can figure out what the truth is and have the courage to tell it, it will most definitely set you free. I am on a truth quest in my life right now. From as early as I can remember, I was very in touch with my truth, as children often are. And, as the youngest, with two older sisters, an extrovert, and a Libra (we balance everything), I was confident in telling the truth. Until the bad things started happening... until I told the truth at a party in front of people and embarrassed my parents, or told the truth about a family situation in my extended family which lead to marital tensions, or the worst case, when I told the truth outside an ice cream shop that lead to the immediate divorce of a new marriage. The truth, as simple as it always seemed, seem to be very complicated when other people had to hear it.

Love this, Amina! And it resonates so powerfully for me because I know the pain of NOT telling the truth, even to myself.
