It is unfortunate that few can hold up in the face of brutal honesty. It is a powerful weapon, and like most, it is double edged and unwieldable with skill. We fool ourselves in to believing it can be used as a sheild. By its very nature (in that truth always has a point to prove ) it can only be used as an offensive attack or defence…It is programed forward.
To further the problem it is often hard to determine the differnce between honesty and opinion. In most peoples minds the two swords hang side by side, sheathed in the same leather of experience, forged of the same steel. In the blindness of battle (life) how do we know which we have grabbed for or ended up waving before us?
On our hills of victory can we tell which bodies laying at our feet were cut with which weapon?
