Real Life Newsletter by Jill Reid

We’re all dealing with the big question …

What is it about facing the truth that scares us?

From our earliest years, we’re taught to be honest and forthcoming in our relationships with others. We’re admonished for telling lies and cautioned about concealing information that could impact another’s perceptions or decisions.

We’re encouraged to “just be ourselves,” because without fully revealing our thoughts and feelings, no one would know who we truly are.

Yet, despite those well-meaning opinions, few practice full disclosure.

And it begs the question: How did the inclination to withhold the truth evolve into common behavior in the way we interact with others?

In weekly issues of the Real Life Newsletter, I explore the reasons behind your self-doubt and lack of confidence. You’ll read articles offering constructive methods for overcoming fear and negativity, and learn positive ways of working through the challenges of everyday life.

For those of you looking for in-depth dives on building strong, meaningful relationships, developing personal success strategies, and creating an optimistic outlook on life, consider subscribing to my Premium Content Articles.

In these special weekly editions, I explore the questions, curiosities, and tangled threads that connect us to each other - and occasionally tear us apart.


I hope so. Because there's more to life than what we see on the surface. And getting to the core of our humanity - and recognizing our full potential - takes more than a scratch-and-sniff test.
