I just realized that most people filter what they say or do through what may trigger a backlash in others. They are ultimately concerned with remaining safe from scolding, and not the truth. That’s a pretty limited way of being. A very fearful way.
Be open to the truth and the truth will protect you. Slander, manipulation and other malicious intentions aren’t truthful so you don’t have to be concerned with it sticking to you.
I understand that if I want to express myself fully, I can’t be beyond reproach. I give others full freedom to feel however they may feel about me. I’ll take it, even if I have to flinch to the sting.
Your truth takes precedence over my ego. My truth takes precedence over your ego. Amigo!
