Why should we tell the truth if we know that it is going to cause the person pain and potentially put an end to an important relationship?
This is an interesting question. I believe that it is important that we be honest and open with ourselves first and foremost. It is this ongoing relationship that we develop with ourselves that ultimately sets the tone for every other relationship that we then go on to have with another. At the end of the day we have only ourselves to answer to. If you feel as though it is right for you to be honest with yourself and not another than this is your truth and the honest thing for you is to live that truth. Our feelings are our greatest indicators to us. When we chose to be tuned into ourselves, we can depend upon them to honestly guide us toward creating the perfect alignment around every subject. This is how we come to know our truth.
