When long-time nurse Bronnie Ware questioned dying patients about any regrets they had or anything they would do differently, the number one response was, "I wish I'd had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me."

No Make Up Selfies - The Naked (Not Aiming for Pretty) Truth

Truly, it had not occurred to me that the bare-faced selfies were in any way attempting to compare 'a face with no makeup' to the savage physicality of cancer. The two are clearly on different continents. Cancer is a bit of a spectre in my family. I do not put forward my point of view lightly.

The Truth About Lying

A lie, however, will always linger. It travels with you and the person you lied to. A lie comes back to stare you in the face at unexpected moments, creating another lie and another lie...

There Is No Such Thing as a Coincidence

I am a great believer that these are no coincidences but synchronicities. Two events that come together for a purpose. They may be to give us a message or they may be that a situation happens that moves your life in a new direction.

In Whom We Trust

Dr Steve McCabe

Currently I believe that what is urgently required is greater truth and integrity from those in whom we put our trust. The trouble is, the embedded culture of secrecy and obfuscation makes this objective extremely difficult to achieve. Moreover, simply increasing performance measures and targets will definitely not help.

As someone who loved the Rav deeply and benefitted tremendously from his wisdom, teachings and love seeing many of the erroneous reports about his life have moved me to tell the truth of the man that I had the honour of knowing.

Why Don't More People Engage in Whistleblowing?

Dr Steve McCabe | Posted 16.09.2013 | UK
Dr Steve McCabe

We need to have a society where more credit is given to those who, because of their inside knowledge of organisational wrong-doing, chose to expose the truth. Unless this happens, the sort of scandals in the seen in the NHS, finance and banking and politics in terms of false expenses, to name but a few, will continue with monotonous regularity.

Today, women over 60 are defining and creating a whole new category of bold and fearless individuals with style, energy and ability! Many younger people might be surprised at the reality of life for women over 60 and the depth of their desire to be heard, respected and visible.

I don't know about you, but i'm one of those people who cares about what other people think about me. I hate knowing that I might have done something wrong and people are talking about me in a negative way.

Tell it Anyway

Tell it and open the door for anyone who needs to go. Tell it and keep telling it - even if the only ones left to hear it are you and your truth, alone, together. Speak it until you feel like the person you were always meant to be. Own it until you don't fear the consequences of it anymore.

Turning entirely normal people into mindless, zombie-esque happy creatures, the mystical Christmas spirit annually forces its way into our homes and hearts and helps us through the gloomy winter months. And then disaster strikes

Does the Truth Really Set You Free?

The British Bank Holiday is a notoriously slow news day. Unless an untoward sighting of a royal backside occurs, hapless journalists are tied to their telephones in half empty offices hoping for a story to emerge. If the sun is shining and their spouses are burying their children in sand on British beaches, the misery of their Babylonian captivity is heightened.

Addiction Beat - We Need Truth, Not Points of View and Personal Anecdotes

Dr. Peter Ferentzy

Many seem to like my recently published book on addiction. Here's what I often get: "Dr. Ferentzy offers an interesting and challenging perspective ..." In such cases I will thank someone for their kind words, but then quickly counter: everything I wrote in that book is true; perspective is irrelevant.

Me, the Truth and the Checkout Girl

Anyway you're familiar with the supermarket routine, I'm sure. All fairly normal and not particularly weird. Although, to an alien race that do their shopping by inhaling consumables through their bottom nostrils, that situation would of course be weird. But to me at that moment everything was fairly normal. Until she started to ask questions. "How are you today?" she asked, smiling.

Photoshopped celebrities never fail to cause outrage. The most recent pitchfork parade was started by an article on the Daily Mail website highlighting the "bizarre" practices that go on inside magazines to improve photos.

Journalists Don't tell the Truth? In That Case, Neither do Estate Agents

The public don't feel merciful, and nor should they. The cynical banishment of moral truth has long undermined not just our journalistic canon, but social dialogue, justice and democracy.
