Better are the wounds of a friend, than the deceitful kisses of an enemy. – Psalm 27:6, DRA
We must be true in our relationships. We must be able to trust. And whom can we trust but those who tell us what is true?
By living in truth, we are able to live closer to each other’s hearts. We learn to love more. We feel less alone.
It isn’t always easy to tell the truth. But through the struggle along the way, we build stronger relationships, we make better friends. Our relationships do not become a mere tool to flatter our egos. They become a sturdy bridge we can walk on for a lifetime.
Those who tell the truth love you. Those who tell you what you want to hear love themselves. – Mother Angelica
