    I'd rather hear the truth -

    even if it's not what I wanted to hear. Constructive criticism often highlights foibles that can be worked on!

    Honesty Is

    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.

    If it's one thing I hate most, it's lies. Liars and lies. I can't stand it. I want to be able to trust people. I want to be able to give people my trust , as well. And I am not going to putt my trust in someone who can't be trusted, and I can't trust someone who always lies...

    I CAN NOT STAND when people lie to my face....It enrages me....I would much rather someone come to me with the truth no matter what the subject may be.......It is more likely to be worked out with the truth........If you lie I can not trust anything you say or do ever again.....

    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.

    It is fairly easy to deceive someone.

    It takes discipline, commitment and courage to be honest. Living a life of deception will get you nowhere if you see the bigger picture..Life is less complicated when you are honest.

    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.
