Every once in a while I start wondering if it is all worth it.
Life is hard. Relationships disintegrate. Misunderstandings between people cause friction and strife. Gossip and rumors run rampant.
Truth is the antidote. Integrity too. Be honest. Seek out people who are honest. If you think someone wronged you, ask them why. Face it – head on. You’ll be respected for it.
An abused and neglected child can’t always be honest because a parent is watching and listening. Because the child is afraid. Because the last time they finally worked up the courage to tell an adult nothing changed. Because the people surrounding them aren’t honest.
Help them. Report suspected child abuse by calling 1-800-252-5400. They are worth it.
And truth will always win.
