I've Been Told I Am Too Honest

What the hell means "being TOO honest" ??? It's either being honest, lying, or not saying something that you should have said (that is also a form of lying). I always say things the exact way I see it and express myself clearly, perhaps sometimes I express myself too clear. Well, i think it's still better to be too honest then not being honest at all, right ?

Oh, my gosh, thank you for being who you really are. You must, however, tone it down a little if people have commented that you are too honest. Honest is wonderful.....truly something that you should be proud of.; guard against revealing everything to everyone. You must be more thoughtful in revealing what you think. Some things should be thought about but not explained. You must serve as an example to what you would wish to be true..........especially if you believe what you have to say..........cannot say, if you do not belive this is true.

I completely agree with you.<br />
For starters, its difficult to do a wrong thing if I am committed to always speaking the truth... it means we have to own up... and that stops me doing it in the first place, and there have been times I felt tempted. Then if we do make a mistake, we still have to go back, face the shame and make amends. It sort of means cleaning up after ourselves instead of leaving others suffering in our wake, or even better avoiding harm in the first place. <br />
However there are ways of telling the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth without causing offence with most people most of the time.<br />
Sometimes its necessary to face and tell an unpleasant reality in order to deal with it, or to set and maintain effective boundaries.<br />
If you are interested in knowing more, try any of the websites for non-violent communication and/or conflict resolution... or message me. I have distilled my personal best from them.

Oh, my gosh, Nathan............good man, stay true to yourself. Yes, though, you cannot stay that true that you loose multiple contracts, you must always stay true to yourself; as you have already done. Nathan, do you understand what character and honesty you represent/??? YOU ARE WHAT MAY BE LEFT OF THE BACKBONE OF OUR SOCIETY.......OKAY, I READ YOUR NAME AS NATHAN....MY NAME IS BRENDA.....WE HAVE CULTURAL BACKGROUND DIFFERENCES.......AND WHO CARES.........WE ARE FROM DIFFERNET BACKGROUNDS.....HOWEVER, WHY DO WE CARE IF IT IS YOUR GOD OR MINE??? WE DO NOT, REALLY,,,,,,,,,,OH, YES, SAVE JEWS ONLY, HOWEVER, I STRONGLY AND COMPLETELY BELIEVE BELIEVE THAT OUR MAN, WHOMEVER, WE INTERPRET OUR MAN TO BE ACCORDING TO OUR BACIGROUND AND WHATEVER WE HAVE BEEN TAUGHT, IS NOTHING OTHER THAN A KIND, AND LOVING GOD, THAT CREATED DIVERSE PEOPLE...I AM NEVER ABLE TO UNDERSTAND ANYONE THAT THINKS THEY HAVE SOME TYPE OF EXCLUSIVE RIGHTS TO HIM..........I REALLY THOUGHT HE LOVED ALL AND ALSO INCLUDED ALL,,,,,,,EVERYONE INCLUDED, REGARDLESS OF EVERYTHING. KEEP DOING WHAT YOU HAVE BEEN DOING; GOSH, SUCH A WONDERFUL THING AND SO HONEST; YOU DO NEED TO KNOW THAT YOU NEED TO KEEP CERTAIN INFORMATION TO YOUSELF, UNTIL REALLY NEEDED OR ASKED FOR. SOMETIMES, IT IS FAR BETTER TO BE HONEST, BUT GIVE BARE MINIMUM, AND WAIT FOR RESPONSE. THEY WILL LET YOU KNOW WHAT THEY NEED. DO NOT VOLUNTEER EVERYTHING...........SUSPENSE SOMETIMES BUILDS MORE CU;RIOSITY. I WISH YOU LUCK AND BLESSINGS WITH ALL YOUR ENDEAVOURS...........BE A LITTLE QUIETER.....DO NOT REVEAL EVERYTHING RIGHT AWAY.....YOU WILL SEE, IT WILL WORK OUT MUCH BETTER...........XOXOXO

There is a difference between honesty and rudeness or inconsideration. Saying "You are fat" to someone, while honest, is inconsiderate towards that person. She knows. She most probably owns a mirror.

hmm yes I think I know what your mother was trying to say. Honesty doesn't mean getting rude, but saying things the way they are in assertive ways.

TOTALLY....HOW TRUE......SENSITIVITY...YES!!! YOU SUMMED UP SOMETHING THAT I HOPED TO CONVEY - PLEASE ALWAYS THINK ABOUT THE WAY IN WHICH THINGS ARE ASKED OF OTHERS...........YOU MAY BE ABLE TO SOFTEN THE QUESTION AND THE RESPONSE WHEN TOUGH QUESTIONS ARE ASKED.

True to self is key; I am not trying to seem like a know-it-all. Sorry, if you took it that way. I know that there is no prescription for life. I am quite religious and realize that others do not share all of my views. I brought religion to the forefront because this governs most of my actions; I realize that I am not everyone and apologize for any offense caused to anyone; did not mean to offend and strictly viewed any issue mentioned from my observer point or view. I always mean to help, and am sorry to have brought any type of offense to those who do not believe as I do............

True, true.........thank you..........me too. Not trying to be offensive, and trying to also help. Nathan sounds like a wonderful person that should just hang back a bit to understand the vultures hanging about him; he must understand now that all are not like him, a sorry fact and such an honest guy...........It takes so much time to learn, and it is not easy at all. Thank you, Nathan, even though you go past what you need to, I still applaud and say you are a good man..........just try to tone this down a bit.

Angeliclights..........I think it sounds like we are on the same page. Thanks for being you and sharing. I, like Nathan, try always to be honest and true. I guess we sometimes need to realize the correct ways of truthfulness and kindness that we express through our hearts.
