Chapter 9 review

I’m doing better and better at the not lying to myself. In fact, I’ve come an incredibly long way, and I think I’m ready to move on to the next chapter. This isn’t going to be one I can claim as all done, ever. I will always need to watch myself, as old habits have a way of trying to insinuate themselves back into your life.

“The truth will set you free, but first it will make you miserable.”

Yes it will and yes it has. However, I’ve never been happier, more at peace, or felt more whole. There are still a lot of bad days and rough seas, but it is strangely so much easier when I’m not surrounded by lies.

Lies are like a rocky shore. The lighthouse, the truth, will help you steer clear, so you aren’t broken and wrecked against the rocks. We were meant so sail the seas, not idly sit on the rocks.


  1. I need to stay focused on the light house. Thanks for the post.

    • You’re welcome.

  2. “I think I’m ready to move on to the next chapter”

    I like that … it speaks of having attained a level of success. 🙂

    • It does feel like I’m not having to remind myself every moment of every day anymore. Progress! 🙂
