    Honesty

    It was always hard to be true to my words, I felt embarrassed of how bad my life was. I had been always pretending to be looked nice or just for a reason to please people. I was eventually realized its not good for me and for anyone else who get involved in my life, there are...

    Broken

    My thoughts on this are very strong.  I respect honesty and inegrity because I know deep down that it is not an easy road to take or the most popular but the payoff is my self worth and others.  I have been told that I am honest to a fault.  By this I mean somtimes...

    I am too trusting!! I have always been an easy mark for con artist, mostly men. I spent three years in Munich, Germany when I was in the Army. In the evenings I recorded music programs on a reel to reel recorder, beautiful music and jazz. This was in the early sixties. My...

    Admitting The Truth

    I recently commented on fb that "I'm in a relationship" and "I'm single" are darn clear. You're either available or not; I also intimated that "It's complicated" was less than honest often indicating (but not always) that someone is cheating on someone. Immediately I was jumped...

    Truth

    No matter what we may call it - cover it up to be - or make it look like...the truth is what it is... and always will be. Starting with what is saves time and face!  :-) The ultimate truth may not be obtainable in this life, but stating what we know is so - and living...

    Very Important In Life And Too Me

    Character is doing the right thing when nobody's looking.  There are too many people who think that the only thing that's right is to get by, and the only thing that's wrong is to get caught.  ~ J.C. Watts If you have integrity, nothing else matters.  If you don't...

    How Do You Do It?

    Truth Or Nothing

    I care about people being honest, and standing up for what they believe in. I don't care if they look good or are "cool" or how much money they have or anything else. People need to be more honest - if they were, the world would be a better place. I want nothing...

    While They Are Similar,

    they are also opposites, for integrity is earned, while honesty is generated. I think the triad would include TRUST, to be complete.

    $600 so not too bad. All in the name of relationships and business. I'd like to go bigger, like take a few teams to Vegas, spend a couple of grand, but compliance... In my business, relationships are everything. They had fun and appreciated it, so it's all good.

    Give And Take?

    Respect covers many domains, and is apparently given and taken away at a whim. My belief is that respect is not something to be earned, but something to be lost. I respect all races, genders and religeous beliefs and open my arms to them. That is my nature and so is easy to carry...
