It's Five Minute Friday again. This week's word is "true."
Do you ever share the true story of your life? You know the one . . .
. . . the one where you share your failures and mistakes, alongside the successes and the things you did right.
. . . the one where you're not defined by any one thing, but by the total of what makes you who you are.
. . . the one where you're honest and authentic.
It's probably not the story we want to share all the time. It's not necessarily the story that makes us look good to other people.
But the true story our lives is the one that people can most relate to. It's the one that lets people know we're human and that we struggle with the same things they do.
True . . . that's what it should be when we share the story of our lives with others.
We can tell the true story without sharing things that disrespect others or sharing details people don't need to hear. It might require us to be careful, but the true story of our lives can still be told that way.
