This is a repost of a Daily Tune Up with Yehuda Berg
Open and Shut
It’s always easier to tell people what they want to hear, even if you disagree in your heart. And since it’s also frightening to confront painful truths about yourself, your friends and family may feel compelled to tell you only what you want to hear.
When you need to tell the truth, find the courage to open your heart, as well as your mouth.
When you need to hear the truth, gather the strength to open your ears, and close your mouth.
