I Am a Very Honest Person

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,804 People

    You can lie to anyone you want

    but you will never fool yourself. If I think about lying I automatically feel stupid so I never try lol. My parents must have really engrained it when I was young because I've never been able to be very dishonest.

    I'll be extremely honest: I can't talk about my

    problems. Straight up. I have to put them in a poem or drawing for them to even make a LICK of sense. Its also hard for me to complain, which is actually a good thing in my eyes.

    I Honestly Don't Lie

    I don't give a crap if you believe me or not. One day I am going to hand over my password and someone can take a few thousand of my saved emails from this place and write an epic book about it. Seriously, you'll see one day.

    I Dislike Lying

    I really hate lying - and I hate being put in a position where I'm made to feel I have to lie for someone else too! I WILL lie if I really have to, only for the sake of someone else though. I don't lie about me, my life or my intentions - my past or my present! I don't feel the...

    Honesty Is The Best Policy?

    Most of the time yes, it is. I'm just the kind of person that will tell you, "No, I don't like your haircut. I like how it was before." But I prefer not to speak out on how I feel about a guy or things that could get me into trouble like telling my teacher, "You talk way too much...

    I'm honest with everyone, my friends, my kids, and even people that I don't know.  To me Honesty is the backbone of any relationship.  With out trust and honesty then you have nothing.  Its hard to build relationships based on nothing.

    I think if your honest with people is the best

    way to get to know someone. it's better to be yourself then be someone else. and if the person cant accept you for you, then they're not the right person to be around. Never change yourself just to please someone else.
