Wipe the tears that burn your cheeks from the sound of truth. It is told for you. The refusal to allow you to walk through this life with eyes closed and ears that don’t want to listen, is an act of love.
To stubborn ears, it stings at first, but after the pain subsides these words are hard to ignore. They stick and they penetrate the layers you have built because the truth always does.
The world says that love is telling things that make you “feel better”. Real love is revealing the truth. It is in the effort to help you escape your old stories and old beliefs in order to free you.
Don’t be strong, be open.
Don’t be tough, be vulnerable.
Don’t run or hide, stand in the light.
Don’t be perfect, be excellent.
