Being honest with yourself, and others does not require brutality. Instead, it calls for an open heart, mind, and compassion.
We are always guided to look at the truth of situations that occur in our life. Seeking the truth is an indicator of an opportunity to grow. During this process, we may have to lose ourselves. Losing yourself does not mean accepting bad behavior, or being walked on, but rather disassociating from the labels we have placed upon ourselves.
Lose yourself to the love that is already inside of you.
