I believe in honesty.
Not white lie honesty.
Not "only if it feels good" honesty.
Not" when it's convenient for me" honesty.
I mean good, old fashioned, not sugar-coated honesty.
Now, I know I have a gift of being able to deliver truth in tough situations and have the vocabulary and heart to be sure and not make it brutal or disrespectful.
But my question is, why is it so hard for people to be honest with each other or (better yet) with themselves?
I am just curious because I cannot relate to anything other than complete and open honesty about all things...
Now, I will quickly admit that I used to lie big time as a kid - and I can tell you why I did it then. For attention and because I was extremely insecure. By junior high, I migrated to the truth because it was exhausting making up shit all the time :)
So - someone, anyone, tell me why people are not honest.
