"The truth will set you free"

As much as the truth can suck sometimes, I always feel better knowing (maybe not right away, but in the long run). I really appreciate people who can just be truthful with me. I hate wondering, so it's really nice when people can just be open and honest about their feelings. Sometimes it doesn't work out the way that you had hoped, but at least you know that the outcome was based on the truth and not on some lie or misunderstanding. Not that I think everyone should go around just telling everyone else their totally honest feelings about that person, but I want to be able to get the truth if I ask someone how they feel.

Part of why I like the truth is because I like to understand - the world, people, why everything happens the way it does. I know that I can't always understand everything, at least not at the time it's happening. I believe that for whatever reason (which may become clear later), things need to happen the way they do, so that we can grow and change into the people that we need to be.
