Today’s Thought: If it is not right, do not do it. If it is not true, do not say it.
I sometimes struggle with when to draw the line with my honesty quest. If someone asks me a question, I automatically want to give the answer. The problem is there are times when it isn’t appropriate for them to know the answer.
At other times, I share too much because I am looking for a bond; something that makes me feel connected to those around me.
This is a problem – it leads to anxiety. What if I have said too much; what if they tell someone else what I’ve said? What if I get into trouble?
It is time to add something else to my honesty quest – I must add a thicker layer of integrity. It’s no good being honest in my words, if my actions are duplicitous. It’s no good building trust if what I do undermines it.
Truthful words + pure actions = calm and happiness.
