Always tell the truth, just don’t always be telling the truth. That was a philosophy my mother often spoke. As a kid, it seemed like a stupid thing to say, a contradiction in concepts. As an adult, I totally get it. I am even learning to take that expression a step further.
I recently wrote an article, Keep Your Values Intact. Interestingly. When I started the article it was about how we settle, settling out of fear. We settle for how we let others treat us, how we don’t stand up for our rights, ourselves, and our beliefs.
