    My bff mentioned that he is taking a

    post-graduate course in psychology, like module classes every weekend. "Oh, great," I said. "Now you'll be analyzing me." "No, no," he replied. "I don't take abnormal psychology until next quarter." o ( ><)o

    Liars Turn Me

    Thing is that even though I know you lied to me I gave you the benefit of the doubt. Somehow I put you above reasoning. Guess that makes me really stupid. So tired of people being dishonest with me just because the truth can put them in an extremely vulnerable situation. You...

    It's important to be able to trust people you

    surround and associate yourself with. As long as you're honest and truthful with me, we will never have issues. Sometimes, the truth can be painful, but I'm one of those people that would rather have my feelings hurt for a moment and get over it, than be lied to to my face and...

    All that seems obvious in life is not

    necessarily true. A curious person doesn't just take someone's word for it; they discover the truth for themselves. The curious dig deep into the details, and when they finish their detective work, they don't only know "what" or "when", they know "how" and "why".

    I think it's better to be completely honest

    even if the truth is hard to say. I'd rather be hurt by the truth than comforted with a lie.

    Crystal Clear

    But What Is The Truth

    I value the truth yes but not at all costs.. Some people feel the need to tell everyone the "truth" even if it hurts. Why? Telling the truth just to hurt someone is mean and has no real value. Some truths are not meant to be told and some people relish telling the truth because...

    Never lie about love.

    If you don't feel the same way don't even pretend. 6 months and counting and yet still doubt whether he does feel the same :/ Guess it's not worth it, if I have to play detective

    Honesty is the best policy to use

    when you are looking to END a relationship. Then that is the time to tell people what you really think, feel, and believe. When you have nothing to lose or to gain by continuing or breaking off a connection with a person, then that is the time to be honest with them.
