At its best, truth telling is a healing art - not a weapon. There is a world of difference between shameless truth telling and reckless truth telling and that difference is love. Brave AND Kind. Not Either/Or but Both/And. And when in doubt, I choose kind over brave.

If you say you’re going to do something, DO IT! If you say you’re going to be somewhere, BE THERE! If you say you feel something, MEAN IT! If you can’t, won’t, and don’t, then DON’T LIE. It’s always better to tell people the truth up front. - via: http://www.marcandangel.com/2012/04/23/15-things-real-friends-do-differently/

Truth

Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.

dont ever mistake my silence for ignorance. my calmness for acceptance. and my kindness for weakness.

Yeap. What it comes down to is your actions in the end. As the saying goes actions speak louder than words. We can make careful plans if needed to to end relationships we do not wish to stay in. Start making plans for the life you want to have after that person is no longer a part of your life. This will make you stronger. Feel the fear, but do it anyway--carefully and with the help of others. If you give up, nothing will change.

We are blessed
