Tell the Truth About Yourself!

Last Update: September 04, 2021

Quote of the Day:

“If you do not tell the truth about yourself, you can not tell it about other people.” Virginia Woolf

Meaning of the Quote:

Only when you know your truth, you can speak it and in so doing, you can also tell the truth of others.

Discussion of the Quote:

If you do not know your truth, it is not possible for you to tell it and neither can you tell the truth of others. You have to first discover your own truth and tell it, then can you also tell the truth of others.

“Our lives improve only when we take chances and the first and most difficult risk we can take is to be honest with ourselves.” Walter Anderson. Indeed, first and foremost, we have to be honest with ourselves. It may be difficult, or it may be easy for us to be honest with ourselves and tell ourselves the truth about ourselves.

More importantly, I don’t think that we all started as liars. It may have started when we felt that telling the truth will get us into trouble, someone could get hurt, it is too scary or maybe it gives some people a trill to lie and then be secretive about it. Whatever the reason may be or however hard it is, it always works out better to tell the truth in the first place. The truth always comes to light no matter how many lies we tell.

Final Thoughts:

No one likes to be lied to! It is one of the worst feelings and the pain that you feel when the truth comes to light is almost unbearable. No matter how many lies we tell, the truth will always come out in the end.

It is always better to begin with the truth, then you do not have to fabricate lies trying to cover up the truth. The truth will always remain the truth. The truth never changes but the lies we tell changes so often that we can’t keep up with them.

Unfortunately, you can not change others nor can you make them tell the truth. You may not even know if they are telling you the truth. However, it is always up to you to tell your own truth.

I appreciate your time, comments and likes.

To our success

Kind regards,

Nichola

Oh my! What a great topic and interesting discussion. I have read and reread. I have thought and thought about these concepts. Here are some scattered thoughts:

We have no basis to support or guide life if we refuse Truth. Anything less than truth is falsehood, error, lies.

Good relationships need truth on which to grow.
Truth feeds trust. Trust breaks down in the face of lies.

Truth is reality. Lies are fantacy; Imaginary truth; Empty words.

Children learn to tell the truth from honest parents.
Children need honesty training to know what reality is.

I am sick of lies! Please tell me the truth so I may know the real you. I may even love you more for your courage!

We may drown in a cup of truth, unless we also have hope. Love sweetens the brew.

Truth begins with God. Hope requires Truth.

Nichola, you tackle great basic topics.
Truth is near the top of the list. Thank you,
and all other commentators. I enjoyed the thoughts.

I feel that this may be part of the reason why we hardly trust people like we should, Nichola. When people give us their word that they're going to do something, that should be good enough for us to take it to the bank - a guarantee that it will get done.

But what happens is that we don't believe them most of the time, probably because our own word isn't good all of the time, when it comes to being honest with other people. Honesty starts with ourselves.

Just my thoughts!

Hello NIchola,

Thank you for sharing this post.

When you tell the truth you will
never have to worry about what
to say the next time as you have
the same thing to say over and
over again.

The only thing that doesn't change
in this world is the truth.

Blessings.

The truth will always prevail no matter what. From my experience, it is so hard for me to lie, I feel guilty when I stretch the truth out of content.

Thanks for sharing Nichola.
