Radical Honesty Doesn’t Mean Unconditional Love is Ok

Sorry, I don’t understand Radical Honesty. Either love someone or don’t. Please don’t turn love on like a tap.

Having this conversation over dinner with the brother of a friend when he was describing an argument with his girlfriend. We had this debate.

My POV as I am curious as to why it has to be Radical Honesty and not just be honest, but I digress.

What could be said:

  • “You are being an arsehole right now” and/or;
  • “I don’t know who you are being right now” and/or;
  • “Not feeling the love right now”

Taking and giving love away just because we are pissed off at someone, is conditional and that is not honest love. Regardless of it whether it lives in Radical Honesty or not.

Be kind, to yourself and those you love, we all deserve honest and unconditional love.
