Transparency with the Right Tribe for Your Quest

when you heard about Christ and were taught in him in accordance with the truth that is in Jesus. You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness. Therefore each of you must put off falsehood and speak truthfully to your neighbor, for we are all members of one body.

Ephesians 4:21‭-‬22‭, ‬24‭-‬25 NIV

*This is EXACTLY what I'm referring to when I say we all need someone to be transparent in order to grow and move forward. You don't have to share your true feelings and business with the world, but you need a small group where you feel safe or at least one person that you can be real with... Then,  you both can work with each other to release, overcome, and grow if that maturity is there. If your connection or group doesn't promote growth, or if you don't release your faults,  or aid in the listening process then the group becomes stagnant and superficial. This keeps you from being real and discovering who God really called you to be or knowing what He wants you to work on. The people we associate with should also walk in love,  and not judgment or fuss. Think about who you allow to pour into you, and pay attention  to whether you have peace and if that's where God wants you to be...
