When you hurt someone…

When you hurt someone…

When you speak your truth are you hurting someone’s feelings? Is it
your responibility that someone’s feelings are hurt? Or are you saying this relationship
is important to me and I value you enough to state my truth?

What if the other person does not want to hear your truth and what if
your truth is in direct opposition to what the other person believes to be
their truth? Did you do the right thing?

In Jesus Christ superstar Jesus was ask this question about truth: what
is truth and is your truth the same as mine?

That question has an always stayed with me because I am not sure we can
get anywhere near absolute truth. (Please no emails about the truth of your
religion? I am not interested.) It is our beliefs, experiences, expectations, and
past history that determine our truth as we experience it today. This is
neither right or wrong – is just is?

If I believe I am to help everyone I come into contact with, am I doing
a disservice to the individual who needs to develop by doing things themselves?
If I have the financial resources to help someone and I chose not to do it because
I earned it and I really believe they need to earn their own, is my truth any
more or less true than someone who has less?

When does sharing your truth become an ego trip versus a genuine desire
to help someone grow?

I have no answers but i wanted to share some thoughts that are
important to me.
