I believe honesty is always the best policy. I have been known to be painfully honest at times, I expect honesty in return. The best way to get on my sh--  list is to lie to me,I can dish it out and I can take it, I think it is out of respect for a person to be  totally honest.even if at times it's painful....

That is only because we fail to keep true to our selves and others. Honesty in all things can be hurtful at times, and doing for others as you would have them do to you, may take time or you may at times cause you to put others before your needs. We are human, therefore, we feel lazy at times, feel like if we don't tell the exact truth it will save explaining things. I really feel sticking to those two simple belief is the only really true way to a great relationship.

I dont know but we still do sometimes....

Bravo... How can we loose...

dont lie to me and I want lie to you...<br />
I will treat you the same way you treat me.....<br />

Thank you Jim, Things seem simple to me, Honesty, and treating people the way you want them to treat you.

Wow, you have experienced a lot from what I have read so far. Your wisdom is awesome, considering the fact people generally learn it the hard way. Enjoy reading your comments. Jimbo

Oh yes, absolutely..I've been called intimidating, oppinionated, obnoxious and some I won't go into...But you know I know who I am I would never say or do anthing to hurt someone. there is constructive and distructive criticism, mine is always constructive. I have had to tell some people you really don't want to hear my oppinion .Don't ask if you don't want the truth..is my motto

Have you found that this honesty makes people find you intimidating? It seems my "tell it like I se it" intimidates people. I have never understood why. I am certainly of no threat to anyone.

Yes Brut, even spineless yellow worms need love.... And thats the honest truth....

PUck-I still love you.

I'm guilty of some, " little white lies", but it's only because I'm a spineless yellow worm.
