Finding Truth

"Lie not, neither to thyself nor men nor God. Let mouth and heart be one — beat and speak together, and make both felt in action. It is for cowards to lie."-George Herbert

Many people lie because of fear.When we are honest and speak the truth, people walk away and others come towards us. People lie because they fear that the people they love will walk away, and they will be left with nothing. They pretend to be belong in relationships that are alien to them. They portray a character that is accepted and they say words that they do not fully understand. The impostor doesn't know how to belong. They know how to pretend, but they do not have the courage to be themselves. Through being honest they would discover where they belong. They must believe a lot of negative things about themselves, to fear finding their place in the world. They may not trust that such a place exists, with courage they would know truth.
