Hard Truths

12 thoughts on “Hard Truths”

  1. Loved ones are or should be friends and friends should be honest with each other. They seem to trip one another when they aren’t. Everyone needs at least one true friend. May each one of your bloggers and people attached have at least one true friend.
    Sometimes the only way to learn is to walk down the path and trip. Unfortunately. Best day to all. 🌹🌹

    1. Truth may get you hated but would you rather be liked for a lie?

      “How are you?” We are taught it is polite to lie rather than be able to say, “it’s been rough…”

    1. Thank you, Terri!

      My hope is that maybe we can all find a way to speak truth in love and find hope and healing rather than feeling attacked.

      Bright blessings to you as well!

  2. Yes! Yes! Yes! When did telling the truth become controversial? I believe around the same time everyone who showed up got a trophy! When did denial become a word that instills the idea that one needs to take a controversial stance? I think around the time we bought into and became part of social media. (How dare anyone disagree with me!) The funny part is, the person who wrote “confront” and “dig deep” probably use those key words a lot, from comments on posts to “confronting” the grocery store clerk when the supermarket ran out of eggs that were RIGHTFULLY theirs. (Dig deep and confront!) We can easily speak in generalities but telling the truth? Well, it’s just not acceptable and you are vicious if you do it in todays society. (Take the blue pill.) I love the statement you have penned! Truth, spoken affectionately doesn’t damage a person or ruin their life! Does speaking the truth have to be hard? Easy lies, hard truths? Maybe it does. Certainly in today’s world it is. Excellent analysis, Kit! Great post! 💜

  3. Kintsugi is the Japanese art of putting broken pottery pieces back together with gold — built on the idea that in embracing flaws and imperfections, you can create an even stronger, more beautiful piece of art. Every break is unique and instead of repairing an item like new, the 400-year-old technique actually highlights the “scars” as a part of the design. Using this as a metaphor for healing ourselves teaches us an important lesson: Sometimes in the process of repairing things that have broken, we actually create something more unique, beautiful and resilient.
