Regarding relationships.

Regarding relationships, I have just one rule: Give me truth, however cold or cruel, or hard it is to hear. I would prefer to have my heart bled and broken if it means I can then move on, than waste a single moment of my time being fooled by a lie intended to preserve my feelings.

  1. Giving truth and receiving truth, that´s what trust is built on. Patience is a constantly nagging companion. I know him very well. But I trust, because you can trust me and I believe in the truth that I can see, because I also try to communicate truth. I am not a doubter, I am a seeker. And now I have to become a builder.

  2. thank you Arlene, your comment hit the nail on the head. I think my spirit is free, and there is only truth…

  3. Yes commenter Petya- are you asking me when??

    Hmmmm..if you’re asking me- the moment you or a person does a thing which though hurting, due to a truth as presented….that’s when the imprisoned spirit is freed from lie….

  4. The truth means clearly to convey the feelings to the other, so that he can be sure of the meaning he plays in the life of the other. There are no secrets and you tries to act according to the circumstances for itself and the partner …. this is truth for me and it hopefully creates trust. And yes Arlene, I also think, that you are ready to make things that can also hurt. There can be sacrifices if one wants to free oneself, as long as they are portable.

  5. You are so right commenter Anie…I am honest when asked and confronted….open and objective communication is very much important….

    Yes, I am always prepared and ready to be hurt…because I know that there are circumstances beyond our control….as long as it is manageable…with God’s intervention…no problem Anie…life has to go on..memories are worth keeping for life.
