    Too Honest

    I am an honest person and it gets me in trouble so much.  My husband gets mad at me when I answer someones question and I am honest about it.  He is always telling me I am too honest.  For example today when I was on the phone with child support when they asked me...

    If you were to EVER met me I'm a nice ,

    but an *******. I'm too honest and direct to people. When people ask about my opinion I'm gonna give my opinion. I try to lighten up on people's feelings when I say my honest and truthful opinion. I know its hurtful, but it's the hard cold truth. I know i'll hurt your emotions...

    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.

    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...

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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...
