I Am An Honest Person

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 141 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 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.

    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...

    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...
