It truly is the best policy. I can't think of a time in my life when honesty hasn't been the optimal way to go. As difficult as it can be, there's a freedom that comes with telling the truth. It helps me stay in touch with my authentic self and reassures me that I'll survive whatever the hardship may be. Sometimes we need to face the truth to heal. This has been the case for me.
There are only two mistakes one can make along the
road to truth; not going all the way, and not starting.
