    I believe in telling the truth & looking out

    for my family which resulted in all my cousins not speaking to me once I told my cousin that her husband tried to sleep with me?? My family is so dysfunctional as I will not ever understand why people say that blood is thicker than water?

    Tell It To Me Straight

    I used to lie all the time. I honestly thought it was better to hide the truth. As I got older, I slowly realized that this wasn't the case. I would always get so upset and frustrated when people would lie to me. So, I vowed to always tell the truth. I slip up sometimes, but that...

    Absolutely

    I believe it's important to be upfront about who you are, your thoughts, your feelings, your beliefs and your goals.. If only for your own sense of dignity and strength.. Facades help no one.

    Finally

    In the past few months, I've realized just how dishonest I was. Being truthful doesn't just mean telling the truth, but also being honest in every way. It's about being fair, doing what is right, standing up for what is right and taking responsible...

    Learning Time And Place

    Telling the truth and breathing/living/speaking/singing the truth are as much about time and place as anything else. Sometimes we have to fake it 'till we make it, we're not lying while we fake it...we're practicing for when we make it. The real trick is knowing when people...

    I Believe In Telling The Truth

    Telling the truth is better than the alternative. Who can remember the falsehoods when the next situation arises? And it's always best to be truthful and up front with another.

    They say telling the truth is good,

    and once you do that everyone gets offended its the same as opinions.

    Trouble

    Trouble is I just seem to get in trouble for it. Seems you're better off telling lies but I just can't bring myself to do it.

    Lying gets you nowhere.

    I'd rather be hurt with the truth, than to be pleased with a lie. I hate liars. Just be open and honest. Especially in a relationship. Secrets and lies hurt.

    I Give Up Spreading Reason. It's Hopeless.

    Welcome everyone. You all know me as an atheist and liberal. I have been trying to spread reason to this website. I'm failing. Theism will never go away. Even though material science won the war of the worldviews, religion is still here, and all of us will be long dead when and...

    Best Policy Lol

    Well...

    I am split when it comes to this. I either tell you the truth, or lie to your face. I believe in telling the truth, but see that sometimes there really is not point in doing so. If telling you the truth doesn't have a point, then I'm just going to lie to you, but more often then...

    Lying is exhausting. I can barely keep track of

    the truth, so don't expect me to be able to keep up a lie for very long. I'll lie to save a life or (perhaps) protect someone's reputation. Otherwise, I can't be bothered. I'm too lazy. It's not that I'm a particularly moral person. That's not the reason. I'm too bloody lazy to...

    When you tell lies, you have to tie

    that lie together with a whole bunch of other lies that you have to keep juggling in your head or someone will smell a rat and you will be branded a liar. For me, I tell the truth because I can't be bothered with the hassle of lies. However, I'm not going to wrap the truth in...

    Lying Is Bad M'kay?

    Lol I can't even lie to save my life!! Not only am I terrible at it, I rarely ever do it. Life is so easy and lighter on my shoulders ever since I stopped lying as well, no burdens of feeling like I back stabbed anybody. It's a little change that can really change a life.<3
