“The truth will set you free, but first it will make you miserable.” James A. Garfield
Here’s an example of a saying I kept hearing for years and never knew where it came from originally. Actually, I heard it as “the truth will set you free, but first it will piss you off.”
I have decided that we each get to choose what works for us. No book or diet or opinion can tell us what is right for us.
I don’t have to fix anything, anyone or any uncomfortable situation. I don’t have to change my behavior because of someone else’s attitude towards me. I don’t have to believe your opinion of me or give it power.
Know who you are. To thine own self, be true.
“And that’s the truth.” As Edith Anne (Lily Tomlin) would say and immediately afterwards, stick her tongue out and blow a raspberry.
