Truth and Dare

Day 2 of the Zero to Hero 30 Day Challenge- Check out the new ‘About Me’ section!

Truth or Dare? Play it safe or take a risk? I remember playing this game a lot when I was younger. You sit in agonizing silence until someone choose you as their next gameplay victim. Depending on who it is, you may know immediately that you will say (if not scream) “Truth”. Choosing truth is the easy way to go, right? Until they ask you that one question you would never want others to know the answer to. The one that makes you blush and sometimes wish you would have picked the dare.

In most cases, truth is important. Honesty is integrity. Blah, blah, blah. What happens when you don’t like the truth? What happens when the truth hurts? Do you say it anyway or keep it inside?

I believe honesty is important. Trust has to be earned and even though we may not want to hear it or say it, sometimes it has to be done. The truth can be set you free. It can help you become closer to someone important to you. The truth can also help if you are testifying in court, in case you were wondering.

Sometimes, even when the truth is out there, you want to wheel it right back in. The truth can change things. It has an amazing power to make you feel. And when it comes to telling the truth about matters of the heart, it can get messy. When that truth makes you feel so anxious and sometimes even sad, the changes it brings can make you feel worse. It can create loss, relationship shifts, broken hearts, embarrassment, and so on.

Basically, truth is a tricky little devil and unpredictable. It’s up to you. Truth or Dare?

Today’s post was inspired by the WordPress Daily Prompt (link below)
