Will the Truth Set You Free?

Will the Truth Set You Free?

I noticed several good quotes in a silly movie yesterday while confined to the couch. Here is one that spoke to me:

 “The truth will set you free, but first it will make you miserable.”  James A. Garfield

What struck me was how simple but true this is (or can be). This past year, I faced two major truths, and the road was neither easy nor painless. But if you can face your fears and work diligently to get to the bottom, the truth often lies there. And, amazingly, stress and fear can be alleviated. We know that having stress and fear are not paths to freedom.

Whether it’s a business, friend, family, health, personal, professional or romance issue, do your best to get to the truth. The pain arriving there may be temporary, but the reward permanent.
