This week’s prescription is “Sodium Pentothal (Truth Serum)”
As kids when we thought about “telling the truth” it usually had something to do with not lying to try to stay out of trouble or covering up something we did we knew we were not supposed to do. As kids we would sometimes “make up” stories, stretch the truth, tell people what we thought they wanted to hear in an effort to impress them and make them like us.
As we grow up we bring some of those bad habits into adulthood. We over promise and then under deliver… or don’t show up at all. This week we will look at how we do more damage to our reputation and our relationships by not being honest with ourselves when our “yes” is not “yes” and our “no” is not “no”. Sometimes the person we have to be truthful with is ourselves.
