Happy Wednesday or shall I say Hump Day!!!! You’ve almost made it to the finish line of the week! Can you feel the mimosa and beautiful weekend calling your name? I know I can! I hope everyone has been having a great week and that you’re ready to finish out this week on a very high note!
This week’s quote is one that has helped me a lot in the past. Being a person that likes to spread good news, it has often been hard for me to tell someone something that I knew was going to hurt them or at least not put a smile on their face. No one wants to tell a good friend that they can’t make it to their best friend’s birthday dinner. No one wants to tell someone they’ve been having financial problems. No one wants to tell someone that they’re starting to having feelings for someone that their friend may also have feelings for.
These are all very difficult conversations, but yet they must be said. Just like the first part of the quote says, “Truth is like surgery. It hurts but cures…” It will for sure be hurtful to hear that your friend can’t make it to your dinner, but think about how hard it was for that friend that cares so much about you, that they couldn’t make it. It was extremely hard, and it may hurt, but you all will get past it in time. Now imagine if your friend lies or just decides not to say anything. The second half of this week’s quotes says, “Lie is like a pain killer. It gives relief but has side effects forever.” Would you want to be cured, or have side effects that last forever. Your friend may eventually forget or get over the time you were honest about not being able to do something for them. But they’ll always remember the lie that broke that trust.
Being honest isn’t easy. If it was, there wouldn’t be so many liars in the world. But we know that’s not the case. So I challenge you to be more honest with your friends and family even if it may not be a popular thing to do. In the end, they’ll have a lot more respect for you. Have a great day everyone! Don’t forget to spread some PositiviTea!
