We avoid it.
We wish it would go away.
Sometimes we don’t even know what the truth is.
When we’re in debt, is the truth that we’re living beyond our means?
Or, is the truth that we are afraid of commitment, what others will think of us, being uncomfortable, or facing a reality that we aren’t what we think we should be?
When we aren’t earning to our potential, is the truth that the economy isn’t what it used to be?
Or, is the truth that we are freaked out, afraid for our future, or worried that we really can’t deliver?
When we aren’t saving, is it because we don’t have anything extra to stash away?
Or, is the truth that we don’t have a practice for saving and don’t know how or take the time to create one.
When we want to give more and keep putting it off, is it because we don’t have something to give?
Or, is it that we are so overwhelmed by the needs around us that we can’t decide how or what to give?
Telling the truth can be painful.
Not telling it can hurt even more.
