love thursday 07.28.11 ~ choose kindness

Keep the other person's well being in mind when you feel an attack of soul purging truth coming on.

Betty White

A spiritual teacher once told me, "When the choice is between truth and kindness, choose kindness."

He and Betty are right.

I was struggling with a way to explain to Lola today why she ought not to spill every detail of her sister's most embarrassing habits in public ("C'mon, Mom - it's the truth! Do you want me to lie?"). I don't have to struggle any more. Thank you for this.

That's been one of my hardest-to-learn life lessons. :-)

Sometimes, that is a very difficult choice. I find myself sometimes rating honesty as being all important . . . sometimes, it's not all that important.
Thanks for the reminder!
