Something to Think About

Difficult truths, especially when they are close to us, are hard to admit. The phrase, truth hurts, is especially applicable in these situations. When we don’t face the difficult truths in our lives we perpetuate an illusion that denies the problems created by the difficult truths. A practical application is a family who has a member who is an alcoholic. When family member’s act co-dependently and refuse to acknowledge the family members alcoholism, everyone is hurt. The hurt continues until the difficult truth is brought into the light. This happens on a family level and on a national level. It’s always better to face up to difficult truths.
