This article should be about stepping up for yourself and being honest with yourself, and kind but honest with others. It is not about the evils of lying. It is about the joy of not burdening yourself with half-truths and untruths. It is about knowing when to be forthcoming with others. It is about looking at your own life and not being self deceptive.
