Day 28 – Honesty & finding courage…


Today a friend was blunt with me. He let out some stuff he had been holding back because he knew it might hurt or upset me. I am so glad he did. It was the fire under my butt that I have been needing. It didn’t hurt, not even a little. It did however have a twofold effect on me. It scared me some, I now have to act because light has been placed on an area of my life that I have been avoiding – aware of, but avoiding. And it has forever changed our relationship. I have a new found respect for him. I appreciate honesty. I am  one who is only capable of being truly accepting and honest with people once I trust them, once they have earned my respect and have made their way into my heart. I hate mind games.

Thanks to a handful of honest words I have done some re-evaluating and in turn have found some courage. I still have a long way to go but every step forward is big. So today I am so very thankful for honesty and for finding courage.

Thanks babe for that!

  1. I have to applaud him. That can be a very difficult thing to do. And, I applaud you for being receptive to whatever it was that was shared. Way to go!
