I Am An Honest Person

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 139 People

    I was honest with my friend.

    I told her I don't like the choices she making and I don't want to be around someone like her anymore. That's directly what I said. I did this because I thought honesty is the best policy. Even if it hurts, you should always be honest. And she's hurt. I know that. I expected it...

    I hate to lie to people.

    Even if I feel I have to I'm such a bad liar because I feel guilty and I'm not used to it. I only lie if I feel my life sort of depends on it (like with situations with my abusive "family") but other than that I don't lie and I'll tell you why; I am on a personal mission to try...

    Honest Person

    I don't believe anyone can be honest at their 100% even the honest of the honest people.  Every now and then, we all tell a white lie.

    Brutally

    I am an honest person. Probably at times too honest. I am not afraid to speak my mind, I will tell you how I see it and I won't be made to feel bad for doing so. At least you know what you are getting I think.

    The truth is always easier to hear

    than a lie... I will never lie to you. I want to see you grow. Nothing good ever comes out of lying.

    I Just Am

    Part of it was the way I was raised growing up because we got it big time for lies and deception. The other part was my parents instilling values in us before we ever left the home.

    Try to Be

    I do try, but sometimes it is tempting to tell a white lie, it usually blows up in your face and then you have to tell the truth anyway. Which means there was no point in the white lie, so I leave it alone most times.
