    Tell It

    I try to tell it like it is. I can be blunt at times.I usually try to use tact when telling it like it is because I do not like to intentionally like hurting people.

    Like It Is

    I don't need to go around the bushes, I will tell you exactly how it is. When I was young, I always kept quiet, I rarely spoke up and now, most of the time, I'll tell it like it is.  I don't see why we shouldn't?  Honesty is the best policy!

    Straight Shooter

    For all you girls or women

    It Is What It Is

    I tell it like it is because people deserve the truth from me.  If they don't like it, they don't like me.  And if they don't want the truth, then they don't want to better their situations, they just want drama, to which I say good riddance.  What's important...

    From my perspective. Doesn't necessarily mean

    that it's the absolute truth, but for the time being, it is what it is. Again, from MY perspective. Prove me wrong. I want you to. I'm urging you to. I'm inviting you to. Just realize, that in the course of that, there will be a debate.

    My soul influence is to see you succeed,

    to make it, to breed a beautiful seed so that he or she may show forth the fruit of her labor. Working hard to stay grounded, switching towns to be surrounded, by different folks and environments, just to learn their good ways.

    Don't Ask Me If You Want The Truth.

    I don't hold back any punches and tell people if they're horrible or good--when they ask. I don't sugar coat shyt! I would want someone to tell me the honest truth and not try to spare my feelings--when I ask.

    Why Lie?

    I tell it like it is, and not what someone wants to hear. I don't do it to be malicious or to try to hurt feelings. Unfortunately some people do get offended. Sorry,but the truth hurts sometimes.

    Not Doing Anyone Any Favours Lying

    I don't believe I'm doing anyone any favours by telling them they look good in something they don't. If a different style or size would look better on them, I tell them so. Lying to them only opens them up to bad criticism from people who have no tact or respect. I also believe...
