Do you want to know the truth?
If you’re like me, you want an honest answer. Even if it might be hard to hear.
Personally I’d rather skip the false flattery and just be upfront about the problem. I don’t like the sandwich method of wrapping a criticism inside a couple of compliments, because once I’ve heard the negative that’s all I’m going to be able to think about anyways.
Plus, I pride myself on having a thick skin. I can take it. In fact I’m more likely to trust and believe you if you’re being brutally honest with me.
But what if, on a deeper level, the truth is that it’s easier for me to accept and agree with criticism because I’m more comfortable with negativity, and it’s safer than embracing a compliment.
What if the truth is that I deserve better. That I’m destined for greater things. That I am loved and cherished just the way I am.
The truth is that gentleness and kindness can be disarming and make me feel more vulnerable and uncomfortable than any attack or criticism ever could.
“An honest answer is like a kiss on the lips” Proverbs 24:26
Living in a world of hostility, hate, fear and pain can lead us to build up a defence system that leaves us feeling disconnected, isolated and numb. It’s easier to feel nothing than to risk the serious and seemingly inevitable damage of love and loss. So we guard our hearts and brace for impact.
But the bible tells us that “An honest answer is like a kiss on the lips.” – loving, passionate connection. Initiating arousal, signalling commitment and leaving us feeling loved.
The truth is enduring and steadfast. It helps us grow and be more the person we long to be.
