    Say It Straight

    Lies are insulting. You might as well just tell the person you are lying to that you think they are an idiot and will eat up all the colorful crap you spit forth. The truth may hurt but it is sooooo much easier to recover from. Lies always leave you questioning everything that...

    People Should Tell the Truth

    There are times when people just lie for the hell of it and it is a very aggravating trait. For those of us who tell the truth. When someone really doesn't say what they mean, it causes unnecessary confusion and deliberate, intended stress for the person on the receiving end. It...

    Really, How Hard Can This Be?

    Just say what you mean and mean what you say!    I think it would be a better place if we all were just a little more honest with each other.

    I Got It From My Father

    "Say what you mean but mean what you say!"  How many times have you heard that in your lifetime? Well for me I think i heard that come out of my father's mouth almost every day of my life. I was raised to believe in myself and to do what I say and to mean it. I expect those...

    I Learned From My Mother...

    ...My mom is the type who when you ask her for a favor, she may say yes right away but when it comes time to do it, she lets you know by her attitude or comments, that she doesn't really want to do it or that it is such a drain on her. As an example, I rarely ask her to watch my...

    Life Would Be So Much Easier.

    I have never been able to ' read between the lines '.  I've heard this expression so many times and it just doesn't make any sense to me at all. What does it mean and where did the expression originate?

    My View On Being "polite"

    I understand the reasons behind politeness, I really do. It just disappoints me that we live in a society where our opinions must be stifled.Well, at least thats what society wants, but there are plenty of those around that seem polite, but are actually insulting you. My mom, and...

    What I Like About Getting Older

    It seems that when I was younger and sometimes now there is always some one you have to "tip toe around" for some reasons or another. But as I have gotten older I don't do the tip toeing much anymore.  If I've got something to say then I say it.  We can all...

    Of Cours

    It's annoying to me when people don't tell you what they really mean.Just speak your mind! Besides, if you have something to say to someone, go out and tell them, don't hide it or speak it behind their backs.Waste of time.
