Mirror Mirror: (Choosing Friends/Self-Confidence) We all want our children to choose friends that will be a “good influence”. But do we ever consider the value of a friend that will “tell you the truth” even a “painful truth”. These may be the most important friends of all. Accepting the truth about ourselves and others is difficult and most of us avoid those who will always “Tell me the truth” and gravitate to those who will “Tell me what I want to hear”. Our unwillingness to accept the advice of a “Truthful Mirror” or be a “Truthful Mirror” is at the root of many of life’s problems.
