hi, my name is Tatu and I am a honest-a-holic!

28 Nov

Well. I know what you’ ll say. Tatu is not a ‘real’ name. You are probably right. Tatiana is my real name. Tatu is the name I gave myself at the age of four. But back to the main subject of this post:

I love my new word and since my cyber friend Anka from thought it was pretty cool herself, I decided to share it with you:

Honest-a-holic, noun: a person who feels the constant urge to tell the truth , the whole truth and nothing but the truth, so help him God.

It sounds good, right? Wrong. Being honest is rarely appreciated, let alone understood. The truth is that I haven’t been honest my whole life, that alone would be a huge lie. What I have been, for a big part of my life, is lied to. In the face. Tons of times. Usually by the same person (I do not need to go into detail of who that person is, thankfully it is not N.)  I drowned and suffocated. And you know what? The truth always comes out in the end. The more I got lied to, the more I felt the need to be true. First to myself and then to others. There is nothing more liberating than being able to tell the truth. I can assure you of that…

With this blog I let myself go. I don’t feel judged, I feel understood. I feel free to be as honest as it gets and THAT is a very big deal for me. THANK YOU!
