Understanding Truths ~ Letters from the Heart #atozchallenge

Dear Barbie

Understanding Truths, what does that even mean? Remember the truth or dare game you used to play as a kid? It was always intimidating after the question was asked knowing you had to be truthful or take the dare. Who knows what that dare could be? Kids had a funny way of making each other participate in silly and stupid things. And to be honest, how did they know if you were telling the truth or not.  Ever since the ballerina incident your conscience always got to you.  

Tall Cool ☺ne always says, “Say what you mean and mean what you say”. He is very literal. It’s hard for you because you write.  You write for effect and sometimes things need embellishment. You should work on articulating without trimming when communicating … you are not writing a story.

Point to mention, this new venture at work entails a full background check ~life time. Crazy, huh?  You are pretty good at knowing what is in your past since you’ve journaled about every little detail. While trying to get the documentation for one such incident from the court, the person on the other end tried to tell you it wouldn’t show up when they did the background check. Hello? Person on the other end of the phone, you’re seeing it, what makes you think “they” are not going to see it?

Why do people have an issue with truth? Do they think that if they don’t talk about it makes it not true? Do they think if they speak what they think is true that’s what it will be?  This is where Understanding Truths came to land on the list.

Just a quick look in your bible’s index and there are over 58 references to the word “truth”. Probably the most important one is John 14:6 “I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” If you ask Him, He will give you all the truth you need. You don’t need to understand anyone else’s truths.

Learn about some truths here … today (4/24/21) only


That’s all for today. (Oh and you have a secret… )

Your constant and faithful,

  1. Dear Barbie,

    Amen to John 14:6! Secrets can’t hide. They always come out in the end. It’s best to not have any if you’re afraid the truth is found out. That way, you’ll never have anything to dread. Happy A2Zing!

  2. Most people prefer the “embellished reality” over the truth and will go to great lengths to keep up their persona. I tell myself that whatever I do, I still want to be able to look at myself in the mirror and feel good about myself.



  3. The truth is a funny thing. Sometimes white lies can save lives. Hard to strike a balance between things.


  4. It is funny that sometimes understanding the truth is difficult. I mean, if it’s the truth, it shouldn’t be hard to understand!


  5. ‘Say what you mean and mean what you say’ is something I recognise from Lewis Carroll in Alice in Wonderland, I think, otherwise in Through the Looking Glass.. There is a discussion about whether these are the same.
