I start from a place of openness.
Then I share the truth. My truth.
For me, truthfulness is not an absolute, nor is it something I can embody fully.
If I am honest with myself, I will admit that I live in about 75% truthfulness.
Sometimes the truth hurts, and then I need to decide, is it worth it to experience that pain?
I may think I know "the truth", but I must be open to the other person's view and opinion.
I must be sensitivenever using my "truth" in as way that hurts another person.
