The One Time Yuk!

“The truth will set you free. But first it will piss you off!” someone once famously said. But this, as a fellow traveller* with whom I once shared a special connection aptly put, is only a “one time yuk!” I think the phrase sums it up perfectly, because although you might feel awful at first, you’ll find that owning up to some less-than-desirable quality or aspect to yourself (if only to yourself alone)...

You could say that it had served its purpose and was no longer needed. For those of you wanting...
