So, here’s the thing- the woman I want to be is a truth teller. When it’s ugly, when it’s inconvenient, when it doesn’t seem like the cutest option and when it’s hard to swallow.
She tells the truth because she knows that it’s the shortcut to peace. It’s the answer to letting things go.
If there is any secret of life I have learned in the past two years, it’s that people can’t use your truth against you when you are the one boldly telling it. They will try. As much as I wish they wouldn’t, know that they will try. It will hurt sometimes, baby. It will.
