Many tenets of happiness are simple, if not always easy. Like honesty. Honesty is a requirement for happiness. Period. That’s an obvious and simple truth. But…we have difficulty being honest, sometimes. We tell little white lies or big whoppers. We live in denial of things that make us uncomfortable. We get so wrapped up in our story of reality that we can lose touch with the truth and with ourselves. This is not happiness, it’s unhappiness and suffering.
The first, most important way back to happiness is through honesty. Face the facts. Don’t judge them. You don’t have to judge the truth. Just take an honest look at it. This will EMPOWER you to do whatever is needed to make things better.
Honesty, try some today! 🙂
