I often see people have quirks; they are obsessed with monitoring time, spelling, etc.
believe it often is a reaction. It has to do with an experience in the past that people develop these quirks, these obsessive compulsive disorders.
My obsessive quirk has to do with honesty. I lied to someone that was very dear to me. It turned out so bad that I decided I would hold honesty as something sacred from that day forth.
When I tell people I really care about speaking the truth or when I bring it up for discussion, people often tell me the following: "you can't speak the truth all the time, because you would hurt people's feelings, or you wouldn't be accepted, it just wouldn't work in this society". This may be true for some people, but not for me.
I will not live my life lying, speaking half truths, hide the truth behind humor, doublespeak etc.
Three things cannot be hidden for long:
the sun, the moon and the truth
- the Buddha
Speaking the truth - your truth - that's what the article Truthspeaking is all about.
Enjoy and let me know what you think.
