Especially self-honesty. The saddest part is that most will begin to believe their own lies as if they were true and this makes for very distorted thinking and inaccurate memory recall - very challenging in therapy.
Be honest, tell the truth as it is.. They are not going to like it NOW, they are not going to like it when ever it is spoken, so what difference does it make. Be honest if they dont like it rather take the flack now because at some stage they will have to hear is, don't prolong the inevitable, because the truth will always comes out and then you will have to Face the Truth!!!.
