Can you trust yourself?
“Can you trust yourself? Can you risk telling yourself the truth? Can you keep promises you make to yourself and to others? We must be willing to take the risk to tell ourselves the truth and grow ourselves into someone who can trust themselves. We will then be able to easily bear others’ trust in us. Being truthful with ourselves makes us trustworthy and frees up all the time we normally spend in guilt and regret from our dishonesty. Truth saves us from having to clean up and as a bonus, we get to learn something in the process.”
