Spirit of Light
Be who ever you want
One have to use unconditional love to be able to be 100% honest.Would you care to reply specifically to my examples? What path do you take that enables you to avoid the possible harm that can come from always being 100% truthful about everything? Do you think it's always more important to be completely honest than it is to shield a child from unnecessary worries or help bolster a friends confidence when he'd nervous about doing something he really wants to try or boost a spouse's self-esteem instead of harming it?
I agree that a person should strive to be as honest as possible in life, but I also recognize that there are vital relationships people have that are based on the participants not always being 100% honest about everything. There isn't a private relationship I can think of where sometimes a participant doesn't want 100% honesty, they just want support.
Explaining to a child with truth can be done in a non harmful way.
