Why is it important to say things in front of people? (not behind their back) #sincerity

I am moving to Tunisia but I am not going to invite at my new place all the people I know in Paris.

Indeed, some masks fell to the floor recently. I realized that some people in my circle talked about me behind my back.

I can understand that they do not share my opinions and mindset, notably about me moving abroad. However, sincerity is a golden value.

So I chose to invite at my new place my friend A. instead. When I went to see her at her place, the children were very loud and misbehaved a lot. She did not want me to come back with them. Was I angry at her? No, I was relieved that she was telling me the truth.

I trust her so much now. I know she will share the truth, even when it is not pleasant.

Sincerity towards others is great but it is also important to cultivate sincerity towards ourselves. Sincerity brings lightness and freedom.
