    That is the first thing I will look

    for in any kind of relationship. I have trust issues from a past event so it's hard for me to trust a lot of people.

    There is no worse feeling

    than trusting someone, and finding out you were playing their fool all along. that's why I have been living on the terms of honesty and full disclosure. and might I say, my relationship is better than ever.

    Lying Should Be a Criminal Offense

    I know that it's wrong to assume that every person I talk to is lying to me, but  I've been lied to sooooo many times in my life.....I have a hard time believing that people still tell the truth in this world.     I know that it's very judgmental...

    Confession

    It hurts me that I lie to my parents. I can safely say that my parents are the only people in the world I lie to. It mars my integrity and my self-respect. But I'm just tired of all the conflict arising from how different we are. So I just lie to get them off my back the couple...

    What Works For Me...

    I'm also quite lazy by nature. When you think about it, it's actually less work to tell the truth. Plus, you have a weight lifted off of your chest and you can move on with life instead of going back to lies and making sure they're covered up. Secrets don't make good friends...

    Lies, Lies And More Lies

    I value honesty in my everyday life. I say what i mean(or i said nothing) I mean what i say. Sure... attitudes and hearts change, so what one once meant, you don't in the present. To me, that's not being a liar or not being honest! What i am a hypocrite for, is not being honest...

    Trusting Soul

    Trust no one to your soul. You alone are responsible for that. No one can take care of you like you. If you don't get respect, move on, they aren't worth the company. Walk away.

    Honesty

    To be dishonest with someone is to lose there trust. The more dishonest you are the more you destroy the trust. It is way to hard to regain trust. Best to just be honest. It you value there friendship or love, It is a must. Just my opinion.

    Somehow I was born honest. It comes naturally to me. If I broke something I'd say so. If I didn't like a present someone gave me I'd say so. Over the years my tact has grown a little, as has the amount of times I have been told off severely as I always seemed to be the only one...

    We are honest because in honesty we find our great avenue of good luck. In fact, honesty is the greatest force in todays' world of politics, and in the ancient days of building. I suppose honesty is a type of good chance.
