The Whole Truth And Nothing But The Truth

Speaking one’s truth isn’t always easy. 

We worry that our truth won’t be well received.
We’re concerned about hurting our listener’s feelings. 
We think perhaps we shouldn’t.

Whether we’re in the bedroom hoping that our lover remembers when, where, why, and how to touch us; or we’re among friends who have forgotten what we’ve already said we want or need, it’s always desirable to speak our truth gently and with pure intent.

Sometimes speaking our truth gets us what we want.
Sometimes not.
Sometimes we must scream our truth as softly and sweetly as possible.
And when our truth still isn’t heard, we may be required to redirect ourselves toward people and situations in which our truth can flow unobstructed.

"It is time to speak your Truth. Create your community, be good to each other. And do not look outside yourself for the leader.”  -Hopi Elder Prayer-
