In Others’ Words: The Honest Truth
Which would you choose: acceptance achieved by pretense or rejection caused by honesty?
Living honestly? It’s risky business.
Wear a mask and be well-liked. Conform to the expected behaviors and earn a pat on the back . . . a place at the table . . . a “welcome to the family” — whatever equals acceptance for you.
Or replace the sanctified lie with the unvarnished truth and get ignored . . . mocked . . . thrown out the door right before it’s slammed in your face.
Sometimes living honestly means the only one left to hear the truth you’re speaking is you. But that doesn’t mean you’re wrong. It just means it’s time to go searching for others who love honesty and live honestly, too.
