“The truth shall set you free.” John 8:32.
If we want to be truly ourselves, we need to be 100% honest in our communication with ourselves and those around us. This can be difficult, as society conditions us to be perpetual liars. Unlearning to lie can be very painful at first, but in the long term, complete honesty will set us free.
Consciously or unconsciously, we’ve been conditioned, indoctrinated, and moralized to believe that the truth is something in the past – something we’ve learned, remember, or believe. But truth changes. That which was true before may not be true now. You can hate someone one minute, and love them the next. Both are true because they are accurate reflections of how you feel in the moment.
