Daily Ground – – – February 12
The truth will set you free, but first it will piss you off!
That is if we allow ourselves to hear the truth. For so long I stuffed my negative emotions – afraid that if I didn’t like someone or was angry that I was a bad person. It was as if being on a spiritual journey meant always being compassionate and always being kind and loving. It took me many years and a lot of pain to realize that I am human, and I have likes and dislikes.
There are people I just don’t enjoy being around. There are some people I like being around for small doses, but do not want to live with them. I’ve learned it is okay to set boundaries. I try my best to set these boundaries with kindness, but at times others may feel as though I’ve hurt them. Learning to live with the fact that I will not always be liked (or loved) by all has been a difficult, yet humbling lesson. It is a hard truth to swallow. Sometimes my truth does indeed piss me off, and sometimes I’m the one doing the pissing off. It’s all part of the journey. Still – I’ll take truth.
