Hearing from the horse's mouth.

To hear from the horse's mouth is an idiomatic expression that simply means:

To hear it from the person who has direct personal knowledge of it.

What's this blog all about?

The truth.

One thing about the truth is that it mostly comes out into the open, just the same way a pregnancy can't be concealed, the truth can't be hidden for too long.

There are some situations some people find themselves in, mostly as a result of their ugly past experiences. Some might prolly be as a result of the number of body counts, or as a result of the number of abortions they've had. Some might be as a result of murder, deceit, and so much more atrocities you can think of.

It's really hard to tell the truth, especially when we need to tell it to our loved ones or someone we can't bare to be separated from. But while struggling with your conscience, always remember that:

"The truth sets you free."

Have you ever been in a situation whereby you concealed a bad thing in your mind for too long, but after sometime, your conscience just wouldn't let you be, so you spilled and whooah! Do you ever notice how free your mind becomes whenever you've told the truth? It's awesome right?

  • The truth is relieving,

  • It's stress free.

  • It might start off on the bad side, but trust me it heals.

  • The truth isn't hidden for too long.

  • It saves you from constant pains and regrets.

  • It also saves from blackmails.

But...in the end.

It's always best when the truth comes from you and not anyone else.

Most people are so scared to face their past, some people's past still hunts them even after they've tied the knots.

That's when you'll see their past boyfriend who had done one or two things with them; coming back to hunt down their happiness.

People fall into a more deeper sin, just by trying to hide the truth.

A short dialogue.

Helena: Zach, I can't do this, you know I'm now a married woman, I can't meet up with you, especially not in an hotel, I just can't.

Zach: I'm giving you 24hours Helena, 24hours to make up your mind, else your pretty little husband would find out about how many abortions you've had.

Helena: (sobs) why do you keep doing this Zach?, Okay fine, I'll come, text me the address, but please let this be the last time. I can't continue doing this please, name your price, I'll pay you any amount. Just stay away from my family please.

One thing about Helena's past is that; it'll keep coming back to hunt her if she lets it, the only way Helena could have conquered her past is by telling her husband. Dropping the bombshell directly from her mouth.

It would still be hard, but it's always better if you are the one they hear it from an not anyone else.

It's always best if they hear it from you first, it makes them heal faster. It might take some time, but they'll be more grateful to have heard it from you and not anyone else.

Gregory is filled with tears, while Helena Is on her kneels, begging.

Helena: I'm so sorry Greg, I'm really sorry I didn't tell you, I was too ashamed of my past. I just couldn't fathom what would happen to our lovely marriage if I had spilled, please forgive me Greg. I'm really sorry. (Sobs).

Greg: You should have told me!! You should have told me Helena, do you know how I felt when I heard it from someone else?. So my wife keeps secrets from me, I had to hear it from another person. You should have told me!!!! (Walks away, enters his car and drives off).

Helena: (painfully screams after him) I didn't want to loose you!!!!! Oh no!! Greg!!! No no no, I hate you so much Zach! I hate you!!!... (Sobs) Greg!!!!.

Lights fade out.

Most people feel that telling the truth would make them loose their loved ones, forgetting that no matter how much they try, the truth would still show it's face. It's only a matter of time.

Even if the truth makes them loose their loved ones, it's still always better to take the chances; especially because the truth gives freedom to your conscience.

Even the Bible says:

He who covers his sins shall not prosper, but he who confesses and forsakes them shall obtain mercy.

Tell the truth, and let that truth be heard from you first and not anyone else. It's always better if it happens this way, than happening the other way around.

Till we meet again in my next article and in yours.

Thanks for reading.

It is true that we want everytime to say the truth but we are not living alone, some times families pressure let you lie about some subjects or your boss or even your partner forces you to lie about something to someone.

My mother says me since my childhood my daughter truth must reveal one day how far you keep it behind a lie one day one month one year . It must be reavled at someday and if we hear it someone else it will hurt us so if you have any truth to tell us .just do courage and tell me .due to her this lesson i never tell a lie to her. I have this fear it will reveal soon. Same as you write Helena should tell her husband may be he would not react too much as he reacted after listening from anyone else.

Say the truth, and the truth shall set you free, we should not conceal evil/lie in our heart for too long, because it will keep eating us up, it's just a heavy burden that will keep on pressing us down unless we free ourselves from the sting.. and no matter how long it might take, the truth will surely prevail.

The truth does set one free, keeping in things makes it hard for one to breathe,any slight question from the person would make you think otherwise. A lovely article as usual Ella.

I once refer to truth as a log of wood no matter how you try to sink it in a water. It will always float up back.

The truth will always come to light, it might take time. It might be after the person's death.

Saying the truth will indeed set one free

Lying is a continuous thing. When you think it's just a small lie, you discover that the lie start getting bigger and bigger and then you lose control. I always tell myself that there's nothing like once in life so I rather come clean

Ouch! I'm wondering why she decided to lie about it, I guess she either thought she was older or too young. So she wanted you to say yours first. I do this Sometimes especially when I'm asked my age.

I guess she felt like I would downgrade her because she hasn't gain admission yet, it was when I told her I just gained admission too that she decided to be sincere with me.

Exactly, my dear Ella, if our loved ones hear the truth from other people instead of from our mouths, then it becomes really hard, painful and sometimes unforgivable to digest it. The truth is relieving and saves us from constant pain and regrets.
