Wisdom on the go with ‘A Mother’s Love’ Weekly love notes of wisdom from Angela~
Be Your Truth
How many times people close to you, act like they are perfect when in public; they walk, act and talk perfectlly. Once they get home and behind closed doors, every other word is fowl (just cussing for no reason). They are so nice to the people on their jobs and at the stores and when they get home they become a difference person (themselves). That’s just not right!
Just recently a well-known marriage counselor by the name of Sharyn Wolf has just let her cat out of the bag. You see she has been on several talk shows, including Oprah, selling her books and giving marriage advice while proclaiming her marriage was love forever. Now years later, she admits her marriage was in shambles while she was on the talk show circuits,(getting paid). She now confirmed she and her husband did not sleep in the same bed or share meals together. It may have taken many years for the truth to come out, but needless to say, it’s out now. Even though she gave good advice she was was faking the public out with it. Are you going to believe her advice now?

The old folks would always say, “The truth will always come out” and “what’s done in the dark will eventually come to light.” You want to know a secret? The truth will prevail. It refuses to be kept in secret. It’s seems easy to pretend to be someone else in public, but when the light shines on the real, you may just want to hide in shame. It’s just not worth it. Shape and mold the person you would be proud to be in public and in your private settings. If you can act like a good person, you can become a good person. We always seem to get upset with others when they do not practice what they preach; but do we?
There is an old saying, ‘you can fool some of the people all of the time and all of the people some of the time but you can’t fool all of the people all of the time’.
As a Certified Marriage Counselor, I can testify what Ms. Sharyn Wolf was saying is correct and does work and is working for my marriage and in our marriage. The only difference is we are walking our talk. The missing component with Ms. Sharyn Wolf was her husband. It takes a husband and wife team to promote healthy marriage talk.
We must ALL be careful not to show and tell people to ‘do as I say do, not as I do’. Let your talk equal your walk.
