There is an excellent card in the Wisdom of the Oracle deck called, “Truth be told” this particular card speaks on self expression, inner truth, outlook/perception and authenticity. I love this card, the main point of it is to explain that it matters more to express yourself, use your voice, and for you to understand that voice, than to ever have anyone else understand or agree with it. Self expression is inherently about the self, if another person benefits from it well, that's just a bonus.
I often see people playing a popular game, I like to call it, “Which truth is truer” It’s a game where everyone gathers around and vouches for their own truth and how theirs is truer than all the other truths in the room. I find myself playing this game sometimes myself, and it’s something that I’m not always particularly proud of. We’re surrounded in this day and age by right fighters, whether it’s in the realm of politics, religion, hobbies, crafts, etc. someone always seems to know better than thou. We even see this often in (drum roll please) SPIRITUALITY! There's many different types of spiritualism, there's many different philosophies out there, and it can get confusing how they can coexist, especially if they have opposing viewpoints. So how do we find a resolution?
Honestly, (and this is my truth) I don’t think we really do. Humans are living on such a complex world during such a complex time, in the context of the universe, we are so young and we know so little, to think we always know what's best is a little too much to ask of us. We’re always trying to make sense of the world around us, to make it seem safer, to cope with the chaos. We live on a world and on that world we live on continents and on those continents we live in countries and inside those countries we live in districts and inside those districts we find a town/suburb, etc, etc. Even on the lowest level we are thrown together with other humans who have completely different bodies, backgrounds, and brains. It gets confusing.

At the end of the day, we must create our own truths and find our own voices, and maybe along the way we might discover there's someone out there that feels the same way. But that's not what's important. You aren’t here to prove yourself to anyone, and you’re not here to prove that your truth is the truer truth. You’re probably never going to completely understand the world, but the one thing you’re gifted in this life is being able to understand yourself. So please take time to do so. Set aside time for journaling, self care, your interests, read books you like, talk to yourself (we all do it, c’mon) and find your voice. It’s all for you.
I love you all very unconditionally,
Nettie, the Oracle of Haven
