I Appreciate Honesty

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 38,178 People

    I am generally honest.

    What I have had to work on is not being brutally honest. I have had to learn to be tactful. Just because something is true, does not necessarily mean it needs to be said, or even justify it being said.

    I appreciate getting permission into your heart

    and soul. I want to get to know you, not the person the world made you be. If you grant me permission to meet you, that means more to me than just knowing you superficially. I can go deep, and I know how to swim. Nothing you can say to me can scare me away. Having said this, I...

    Honest, Honest, and Honest I can't stand a

    liar. I've been lied to by guys that I've liked and had feelings for and I've been lied to by people who referred to themselves as "friends". It did hurt a lot. If you can't be honest, we can't be anything. Honesty is a must. If you want to lie, keep your *** away from me. :3

    Why can't we all be honest

    and instead of lying about whether you can go somewhere or not, just say that you'd rather sit at home, or instead of saying, "I'm fine," why don't you say, "I'm not okay but I will handle it myself." I don't think the real problem is being honest with others, it's being honest...

    I don't want to be even.

    I want to be equal. Yes, there's a difference. Even in this sense relates to revenge, schemes, games, dishonesty, vulgar behavior and actions. Equal implies respect, dignity, tenderness, harmony and empathy. I value honesty and expect it to be reciprocated. You could have been...

    When Someone Is Honest With Me.

    I think the best thing in a friendship is honesty. I'm always as honest as I can be, as long as I like/trust the person and want to be friends with them. I appreciate when someone can be honest with me, even about the slightest things. Even if they think I wont like what they...

    Fake people have an image to maintain.

    Real people just don't care. We may have avatars for privacy, but let us be true with our age and gender, and with what we post. People can discern. People appreciate honesty. Otherwise, we just don't care.

    Honesty refers to a facet of moral character

    and Connotes positive and virtuous attributes such as integrity, truthfulness, and straightforwardness, including straightforwardness of conduct, along with the absence of lying, cheating, theft, etc. For me honesty means being trustworthy. In the world of internet, with Dr...

    Be authentic. Have the courage to allow people

    to see the real you. Be willing to be judged, and even encourage it. It's good for self- knowledge and for developing thick skin. As you become and express your best self, others will great things about you, and the few that don't won't matter anyway.

    I really can't stand fake people.

    Don't lie to me, don't play games with me. Be straight forward, tell me what you think and feel and want. Cuz once I find out you've lied and made a fool of me, that's it. It's always easier to walk away, so give me a reason to stay.

    I live in a world where nobody cares about

    anyone , everybody lives in their own world , no brother cares about his sister, and no sister cares about her brother. Everyone is so selfish and cruel but to some extend it is very important to be these two things to survive in this world.

    for a relationship with somebody who won't cheat, I mean I don't think that's asking for much is it? Can you not stay faithful to the girl that you wanted to be with in the first place?!??

    Honesty is the best policy isn't it?

    When you find out someone has not been honest with you it makes you doubt everything they say from that point on.

    I can usually tell if I'm being lied to anyway.

    And thanks to my obsessive nature, I can't walk away from something until i've figured it out. It's like Nash from "a beautiful mind".

    I think honesty is so important in every

    relationship in your life. I have a friend who is so blunt with me that others perceive her as rude, but I think her honesty drives me to be a better person. And isn't that what friends are for??
