    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...

    Lost

    Sometimes I feel like the qualities of honesty and integrity have been lost. Like good manners, spelling and proper English, they have somehow disappeared into that void of indifference. I wonder if we've all just become so jaded we've come to accept lower standards. We've been...

    To Be....or Not To Be...

    I think when people lie to protect someone else’s feelings they are doing a great disservice to the other person. They indirectly imply that they, the other person, cannot handle whatever it is that needs to be lied about. It also indirectly says that the person lying is...

    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.

    While we talk about a great deal about

    respecting the truth, while most of us regard the truth with genuine respect. The fact is that lies are common in our lives everyday.

    I find respect in people

    who aren't afraid of honesty. Saying exactly what's on your mind confidently enough to laugh when you think it's funny and let the emotion take place in your voice when it's there. That's what a real conversation consists of and one day I'll have the confidence to show that...

    Why are there so many pathetic,

    vile, contemptible, parasitic little perverts on this site who insist on sending photos of their "parts" to women? Do they find it funny? Do they get off on making a woman feel disgusted or unsafe? Do they behave in such a way in the real world? I wonder how many of them have a...

    relationship. If relationship partners do not have these ingredients then that relationship is doomed, dead, and finished.

    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...

    Respect and honesty are a necessity.

    Anything else is unacceptable. If you do not have those, what is the point?

    Honesty Leads To Trust...Simple, Right?

    My husband is a liar. He always has been, and I fear he always will be. Even the stupid, inconsequential things, I find him lying about....I don't understand why. There would have been no repercussions for his actions, but as soon as he lied about it, now there are! Now, the...

    I'm Constantly Feeling Let Down By People Who Don't Keep Their Word... Or Worse

    It has always been ingrained in my personality, that when I say I will do something, meet someone, etc...  to do  otherwise is something that never enters my mind.  Yet, often, I feel like I'm one of a very few who think the same way.  Seems I should have learned by now that...

    Honesty To Self

    I cannot lie to myself and even if I try, I will always know the words I thought and told myself were not true. The action I overlooked and said I did will not go unnoticed by myself. The action I did and said I didn’t will still be true as well. Myself will know just what I...

    I get highly pissed off by a man who's unkind

    or stereotypes other people, really turned off by that, even if he's perfect to me. Makes it harder to find a man but I just get incredibly pissed or turned off by 'unkindness' or looking down on others. That's such a turn-off.

    How Do You Do It?

    I am firm believer that being honest is better then pretending to be someone u are not! Staying in a Unhealthy or Un satisfying Relationship is not going to make u happy. Also, if u meet a person who u " Click with" never let an opportunity go by to get to know him/ her, they...

    $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.
