    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...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    If you say on earth you can't be happy,

    that proves that you don't hope for a better life, hoping for a better life is about attitude ,behaviour .The way you behave that way the world will give you a reaction ( answer) and you decide if that reaction makes you better or worse, or doesn't affect your status.

    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...

    I admire exceptional posteriors,

    and dishonesty is not in my nature. Allies and countrymen, surely this truth is universal!

    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.

    Best Policy Lol

      I believe in telling the truth, but what exactly is the truth? To me the truth means in some circumstances the struggle between everlasting life and death, between light and darkness, between peace and chaos.  If I am blessed to have a child I want to name her a...

    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?

    This is opinion. Mixed with truth.

    Mixed with hope. Please bear with me while I stumble through the jumble that is in my head. It will all become clear in the end. (This is where the hope comes in) I think it's easier to tell the truth on here. I can't imagine trying to lie and then go to a different group...

    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.

    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...

    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.

    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
