Excellent message and presentation, Victoria!
Sometimes truth can feel mean.
Such a good philosophy for a good life, Victoria. Insightful as always.
Yes, we must all remember for sure, Victoria! As far as truth goes, I think Willow has a point--sometimes silence is kinder. LOL
Victoria,A good basic requirement for life! In short supply these days......Eileen
For me truth and integrity go together, even more than kindness and integrity. I don't think truth is usually cruel, or even unkind. Especially truth with oneself.
Wise poem, Victoria. I wonder....if truth is wrapped with good intent and kindness, can it still be mean? I think not intentionally, but the receiver may feel hurt. Fine line. Integrity is vital, though.
Good acrostic, but where are the 'r' and the 'i'?
