    Honesty Is Important

    I am a very honest person, I think part of it has to do with how I was raised and part of it has do do with the fact that I have been lied to many times and I know how much it hurts to be lied to.  I know that sometimes it can hurt to be honest, but I think it can be even...

    Big Trouble...

    My mouth gets me into trouble because not only am I honest, I tend to phrase things in such a brutally forthright manner that I honestly (lol) scare people. I can see it in their faces that can't tell if I'm serious, joking, or insane. The truth is that I'm probably a little of...

    I Try to Be

    Yeah, I tell lies here and there. Usually to keep people from bitching about stupid things I don't wanna hear or because I don't want to hurt someone's feelings too much. But for the most part I try to be as honest as possible. I hate seeing people sad when they hear something...

    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 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...

    I Am Very Honest......

    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.

    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.

    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...
