Be honest to yourself.
Be honest to those around you.
It’s easier to show a side of honesty than trying to deceive or misdirect.
I’ve always believed I’d rather tell the truth than be shamed by being dishonest. Perhaps I had a great teacher – my mother.
It’s a virtue I hold higher than most. Yet I still have a filter and don’t always share my true feelings. I wish I did not do that. Maybe it would be liberating. Yet I try to be non confrontational and wish to be liked by all.
As I grow older, I’ve discovered cynicism and pessimism. I wish I hadn’t.
But I think if we were more honest with each other maybe we wouldn’t get so easily offended by insignificant things. Because the honesty would developed a tougher skin. It can make us stronger and push us further.
Just be honest…
