TRUTH: CONFORMITY TO FACT OR ACTUALITY, REALITY
The following message is from the song:
‘The Truth Will Make Me Free’ written by Fred Rogers
I’m learning to sing a sad song when I’m sad.
I’m learning to say I’m angry when I’m very mad.
I’m learning to shout,
I’m getting it out,
I’m happy, learning
Exactly how I feel inside of me
I’m learning to know the truth
I’m learning to tell the truth
Discovering truth will make me free.
There is a special gem of a book called The World According to Mister Rogers, Important things to Remember. It is a collection of stories, anecdotes, and insights written by Fred Rogers. The first chapter is entitled The Courage to Be Yourself. Why can’t we accept our truths: our talents, our passions, our virtues? According to Mr. Rogers “Discovering the truth about ourselves is a lifetime’s work, but it’s worth the effort.”
I speak my truths.
I am content to be my true self.
I know the healing power of my truths.
