Transparency

The older that we become the less transparent that we allow ourselves to be. The lack of transparency is causing so many relationships, friendships, partnerships, connections, etc. to fail.

I myself am not very transparent. When I am it is with a few select people. What made me this way?
That's just how am I and life experiences doesn't make it any easier to be transparent with others.

I know we want to be transparent with others, but we are afraid of being hurt. We are afraid of being judged and feeling like we are less than. So, instead of being transparent we act like everything is okay. We say nothing and we bottle up everything inside.

Should we be transparent with everyone?  I believe we should be honest and real with everyone, but not necessarily transparent with everyone.  Transparency is allowing that other person to see through you and being able to understand you for who you truly are.

It is not meant for you to be transparent with everyone about everything for the simple fact that they won't know how to help you. However, there are times when you have to be transparent because somebody else needs to hear your story, your struggle, and your pain. They need to know that they are not alone.

I'm learning that we all are hurting badly within and we just want someone to fix the pain. There's only one person that can fix that pain. Until, we seek God to help heal our pain we will never be able to be transparent with those that we need to be transparent with.


MY TRANSPARENT MOMENT

I struggle hard with communicating my feelings and expressing what's really going. However, I recently had to do something that I didn't want to do....COMMUNICATE. I know that as I communicate more and let go of things that I have been holding onto, only then will I be able to be free in every aspect of my life.

I'm learning that God will do whatever it takes to get you to where you need to be and he will place people in your life that are equipped with what you need to get you there.

What's Love All About?

Love is more than a feeling. It's being there, even when you don't feel like it. Love looks deep within and puts aside self to help others. True love heals!

When I look around so many people are looking for love and so many people need love. My biggest lesson in love was my experience with my Mother as she battled colon cancer.

Our relationship wasn't perfect but it was love that made me drop everything to be there for her. If I didn't love her, I wouldn't have been able to endure as long as I did. At her lowest, I did my best to be there for her.  My experience with my Mother has helped me to love more.

You don't truly know the definition of love until you have gone through something with someone. Loving someone when things are going good is easy, real love is tested through the storm.
