A truthache is something we hide that hurts us.

Healing our truthaches helps us build a life of self-respect, personal power, meaningful relationships, and peace of mind.

Tamika Schilbe Cole
I wrote this book because I know what it’s like to have a truthache and not know what to do about it.
In my adult life, honesty has been the way I step forward when I’m stuck. But for as many times as I’ve stepped forward in my truth, I’ve avoided it too. I’ve exaggerated my abilities when I didn’t think I was good enough, or downplayed them to make someone else feel better. I’ve hurt people close to me by not sharing the full truth of a situation. I’ve discovered that dishonesty is a good teacher too. For me this path is about practice, not perfection. There are always new layers, new discoveries, and even new skills to hone. I am forever a student of this process.

Holding back our truth is hugely distracting and diverts energy away from our goals and dreams. Yet, even the most healthy, successful people need support facing difficult truths.

Sometimes dealing with truthaches goes smoothly, and other times honesty is frightening—or misunderstood by those who don’t want it to be true.

Full of real-life stories and examples, this book will give you the support, courage, and skill to transform your life and be the person you are here to be.

Truthaches is a testament to the journey we are all engaged in. Truth is complex, emotional, and not without its dangers. In this book, we read how we can begin to craft the narrative of our lives, and understand it through a multilayered process. This process gives us pause to think, run away, and surface again. Schilbe’s book gives us a resource to provide guidance and support on the journey. It is a welcome guide to those who are on the path of seeking their truths, and seeking the ways to share truth with others.

Dr. Adrienne S. Chan

Professor Emeritus, University of the Fraser Valley

The phrase ‘speaking your truth’ is gift-wrapped as a wonderful way to awaken, yet confusingly elusive for many. As complex individual beings, there isn’t an easy answer, until now. Truthaches guides us to recognize where truth lives and how we can bring it to the surface without feeling guilty. It teaches us to joyfully live the greater consciousness we seek that speaking from the heart affords us.

We feel her vulnerability, authenticity, and strength—and we gain so much from her wisdom and practical guidance for how to navigate the terrain of our own hidden secrets, and how to bring them to light.

You’re about to become part of something much bigger, much more expansive and liberating than any self-development I’ve ever encountered. Truth is not just a virtue, a theory, or an obligation—it’s alive. It’s a living, breathing, pulsing entity constantly seeking expression. Bigger than all of us, it’s an exciting, dynamic, and ever-changing force all of its own. Together we can honor the life-giving, expansive energy of truth. We can reclaim our right to live true and help usher in a brave, compassionate, and exciting new world—just by being real. Roll up your sleeves, my friend.

Let’s do this.
