I feel liberated when I choose to live a life of pure intention. Being truthful allows me to feel at peace in my existence.
I tell my friends the truth in all circumstances. Honesty strengthens our relationships. Although the truth is sometimes difficult to hear, I am committed to be a trustworthy ally for the people who mean the most to me.
I build strong relationships with others too because I tell the truth.
When I speak honestly, I hardly have to worry about relying on memory to recount a situation. The truth is based on my moral perspective.
Being straightforward allows me to be consistent in my expressions. It strengthens my conviction and shows others that I am a person of integrity. My word is reliable because I ensure that it comes from an honest place.
It is sometimes tempting to cover up mistakes, but I refrain from doing that. Creating a shroud of dishonesty only leads to more dishonesty and the inability to recover from it.
When I tell the truth, I sleep very well at night. It is a good feeling to avoid being a prisoner of my own thoughts. I let them out in the most honest and considerate way possible. My heart and soul are at ease because I am truthful.
Today, the truth sets me free once again. I am blessed to know the value of being honest. I am committed to keeping my words and actions in line with my beliefs.
