We are often slow to believe those things that will bring us pain; we hide in a cloak of denial. Until one day, there very thing we resisted against stands before us – the naked truth revealed. And as the pain comes, we may feel it is more than we can bear. The fact is that we can bear what stands before us. What we cannot bear is to give our life away by not facing the truth. Today I remain open to the truth, knowing any pain that comes will pass.
