Honesty and Truth - Give and Take
Well today is National Honesty Day. It was put in place to end the month after beginning the month with April Fool's Day. Sort of a balance between the beginning of the month and the end. I think that all people should strive for Honesty in all things.
Did you know that honesty is a two way street. The one way is the person that speaks the truth, speaks in honesty. The other way is the person who is receiving the truth and the spoken honesty.
The giver needs to give in love, compassion and be understanding to the other person and their feelings.
The receiver needs to be open to what they are receiving. Whether it is criticism (given with tack), or just the response to a question.
So we not only need to be open to honesty and truth, but we need to give it in understanding and love.
Next time you are asked a question give in love your honest and truthful response. And next time you ask a question keep open and receive with the best intent.
