In a world riddled with deceptiveness and the bombardment of the lie that everything that glitters is gold, truth is not celebrated as it should be. But if we think about it, anything that is decorated/hyped up/ amped up in our society lures us in and leaves us empty. Those things don't provide us with the framework of trust and truthfulness and anything that doesn't should indicate to us that we need not entertain it, engage it, or allow it into our space.
We deserve to be true to ourselves/our principles. We deserve to have truthful and trustworthy relationships. We deserve to engage in, entertain, and allow things based on truth and trustworthiness in our lives. We have to know that we are worthy of something before it becomes a part of who we are and before we expect it from the people and things in our lives. Truth is and should be the standard for living--the unadulerated truth. It's sad that we live in a day and age where we have to put adjectives in front of nouns to highlight authenticity. Why can't truth just be that TRUTH instead of the unadulterated truth? Why can't love just be LOVE instead of unconditional love? Why can't a wo/man just be a WO/MAN instead of a real wo/man? The need for qualifiers would not be necessary if people would just be TRUE!
That’s my twenty-nine cents. Blessings.
