Ep #302: Introducing the “Truth Series” – The Truth Will Set You Free

Get ready to embark on the “Truth Series” at DesignYou!  I’m thrilled to kick off this journey with honesty. I genuinely believe that embracing and speaking our truth and presenting ourselves without a facade would bring more happiness and health in 2024. Today, I’ll explore why we often hesitate to be honest in various situations. We don’t have to bear the weight of someone else’s feelings. We shouldn’t adhere to the notion that we must conform to certain behaviors for others to like us – that only contributes to our unhappiness. I encourage you to join me in pondering these aspects and opening your mind to a more authentic way of living. I’ve been challenged by the topics we will cover, and I know you will be, too.


  • [0:22] Introducing the “Truth Series.”

What You'll Learn From This Episode

  • There are many reasons we don’t tell the truth. We may not want to hurt someone’s feelings, or we may be trying to control the situation’s outcome without even realizing it.
  • Speaking the truth does not have to be done sarcastically. However, it may come off that way when pent-up emotions are released. The delivery of words and voice makes a difference.
  • Most people do not want to tell someone no. So, we become exhausted trying to work around the topic, and it would be much easier and more honest to tell them our expectations, in other words, speaking truthfully.
