You may speak your truth, but soothe your words with peace. Tell your truth as soon as you know it. Yet tell it gently, kindly, and with compassion for the hearer. Someone needs to hear the truth from you today… but that person also needs your deep compassion as you speak it. Seek to say what needs to be said with softness, and with a wide open heart. Remember, the truth can hurt…but it hurts a lot less if you care how it feels while saying it.
Neale Donald Walsch
