Why it is so Important to Speak your Truth.

Has anyone every done something to you that has made you want to punch them in the face?

Come on. Admit it. Of course they have. You’re not sure whether you should call them out because you may hurt their feelings. But you know what sista’? You gotta!

They may turn things around, make it seem like it’s not their fault, blah, blah, blah. They don’t want to deal with owning their bullsh*t.

Whether or not you think someone can handle the truth or not, keeping speaking the truth. When ‘they’ say the truth sets you free, ‘they’ are not joking. Don’t get entangled in others web of lies. Speak the truth, even if it hurts. Only the ego can be bruised. An awake person can handle the truth.

Trust me.  They will thank you later.

Easy peasy, right?  You can do it and I want to hear your steps to implement.  Please leave a comment in the box below.

19 months ago I found out my husband was having multiple affairs behind my back. He told me that he'd planned to stay with me until I found out, since it was convenient for him. We'd pursued a passionate, devoted spiritual path together throughout our 23 year marriage, with a foundation of integrity and authenticity. We saw ourselves as becoming New Humans, building the New Earth. The women he became involved with are on a shamanic tantric path, training to be Sacred Sexual Healers. They've never taken responsibility or admitted any wrongdoing. I still feel an inner urgency to speak my truth, that they knew better and acted selfishly with no consideration for me as a fellow human being, that they are in denial about their actions. Yet I'm conflicted because I'm convinced I'll lose my center and come off looking like a whiney victim if I try to speak. I've been processing this for almost two years, and the urgency to speak won't go away…

Very difficult to get clear on the truth, the deepest truth, and not come from wanting to get satisfaction from being pissed off. That's a good way to make the situation way worse! What is the kernel at the core of the truth?
