The Thing That Hurts Also Helps

Author of quote anonymous

One of the things that hurt people is the truth. The truth does not come to give us a feel good message. It comes to divide and separate. People feel broke down and weak. That’s due to being told that you were right when you were always wrong. Never getting the proper correction and teaching that would turn males into men and females into women. Walking around constantly believing a lie and feeling proud of it. Having a bunch of yes men around feeling your ear with what you want to hear. Having a ego, an arrogance and pride that stops you from hearing the truth. The truth that helps you Develop and grow into what you need to be instead of what you want to be.

Yeah, the truth hurts but it hurts much more to live a lie, especially when you don’t have to. Nevermind the blatant honest, boldness and forthrightness. Focus on the fact that you are being escorted from the dark to the light.

Yeah, the truth hurts but it helps you realize right and wrong. That way the next time that you are in a predicament of some sort. You won’t have to guess or figure out what to do. You been there and done that. You have the tools so you already know.


Wassup world. I am Keyshaun Jamel Collins and what can I say about myself. First thing is that I never thought that I would be sharing my life, thoughts, experiences, ideas, and dreams aka my business with the world. I’m simply an introverted guy who views the world differently but prefers to keep to myself. I graduated from college nine months ago with my Bachelors of Science degree in psychology. That’s a big accomplishment for me. Yet, that’s not about me. I am a Chicago native born and raised to a black dad and mom who are still married till this day. That don’t describe me. I got a Puerto Rican and Mexican fiancée; my guy friends I had to break free from them because they were jealous. Couldn’t understand how I had the tools to get that one girl, while they stepped up to the plate swung and missed. That’s not about me. Went outside day after day practicing on what started as a dream in hopes of one day becoming a reality. I did not have the mental strength to let this curricular activity go, so I could realize that this was meant to be metaphor to teach me life and prepare me for my true gift. Now that’s me. I am a firm believer in to whom much is given, much is required (Luke 12:48). My goal is to give back, it is very easy to receive so much in life, but the real reward is to give back that knowledge so you can help the next fellow man under you struggling in whatever his/her situation may be. Through this website I have an opportunity to inspire, encourage and motivate. Paint a picture with my words while telling a story about my struggles, hard aches and pains; also the down falls and faults that I bare witness to everyday while I interact with numerous people everyday. How am I able to achieve this, simple I know myself. I know my self worth as a man because I envision it, claim it, speak it and walk in my authority confidently because I understand it. Like my dad and mom always say “If you don’t stand for something than you’ll fall for anything. Now that’s me.
