Stories about love to restore hope in people's hearts

Honest brings unity in all relationships

17 Comments

Learning is a continuing process throughout life. Every day we are learning things from each other, especially in our closest relationships. Friendship requires honesty to have a better friendship and real love. Sometimes we learn this from our mistakes.

I would like to share with you all a recent example. Last week I made a mistake with my friend. When she pointed out the mistake I made, immediately I said, “Sorry.” But it was not a sincere apology from the bottom of my heart! Just I said sorry for the purpose of cutting her conversation short, to avoid feeling the mistake I made. Yet it will be better to me to feel it, and fix that mistake, instead of saying sorry without a good reason. I was not honest with her.

Sometimes we try to protect ourselves, without consideration of others. I see it from my own experience. I tried to protect my feelings, but it hurt my friend’s feelings. We all face this same challenge, I hope my story will help people who face a similar challenge to understand and correct that problem for the benefit of the world.Love

  4. Aw Wilson what a beautiful post, so true, sometimes we do not have good communications with our friends or love ones, that is the key. I think we were not thought to say what we really feel to protect our self our others.

    Sending you lots of light!

    • Doris, I agree with you. For example, I had that problem myself. I had a habit of not giving people feedback when they hurt my feelings. I would just I keep quiet!

      Sometimes when I didn’t agree I used to say, “yes” just to avoid giving the person feedback. But it hurts a lot inside the heart, because I keep holding onto it and I can’t let it go! I have changed that habit because I saw how much it hurts my friends.

      Communication is the key in all relationships and we have to keep adjusting our communication everyday to make sure that we are all in the same page.

    • The appreciation you gave me makes me happy because I feel your happiness in it. If you appreciate what I do then you can do it yourself. Every day new things happen, and each one is an opportunity to love.

  7. Excellent essay on honesty.
    I have come to realize in my now seasoned life that unless family and friends can be completely transparent than we only have a superficial relationship. I see those in my world as either acquaintances or friends.
    Acquaintances I no longer get emotionally invested in, because I’ve no clue who the person really is.

    • This is something important in all relationships to be honest. People who will not be honest with you, or who don’t want you to be honest with them, are rocky ground. Friendship needs the fertile ground of honesty to grow.

      And I encourage you to be patient, sometimes people take time to open up.
