At times It can seem like we have to draw a line between honesty and kindness. We don’t, though.
We CAN’T really separate the truth from love or kindness.
When we avoid the truth out of “kindness,” the truth isn’t the problem. The negative emotion we’ve attached to the truth is the problem. If we remove our anger and doubt (and any other negative emotion based in fear), we’ll see that the truth serves everybody.
