As a young girl, I always “tattle tailed”. Everyone did not like that very much. Even when I would get into trouble I would eventually tell the truth.
Honesty to me is so important in life. I really don’t like the exhaustion that comes with one little lie. Example of “The Chocolate Bar” blog I posted. I knew I was going to get into trouble and I did it anyways. I didn’t lie.
I always feel so much better after I express my feelings and emotions on a subject or situation. Sometimes you just need a positive, honest person to see a different perspective of things.
Growing up I always said things that would throw people off. Kind of give me a look for being so blunt and honest. Normally always kind. Unless I was over raged, over something. Mainly bullying, disrespect, or physical altercation.
Just get such a good feeling when I don’t hide what I am feeling emotionally. If I am embarrassed I will voice it. Lol Thats how honest I am. I have no Shame in expressing my true feelings.
To be honest, is to tell the truth. Telling the truth is being honest. I remember my sister had a friend over. I had just gotten out of the shower. I was on my period so, I put a pad on when I was getting dressed. Left the wrapping on my bed. My sisters friend asked me if I changed my pad in my room. I said no, with a beet red face.
She actually said to me, you have nothing to be embarrassed about. No need to lie about it. She said I have changed my pad in my room too. Well then, I should have just been honest. Hahaha
There are times my heart is pounding so hard and I am shaking if I am about to give upsetting news. I don’t like to lie so I push through that fear and anxiety. When all is said and done, I feel uplifted. My shoulders feel lighter. I can breath properly, I don’t have to worry about feeling guilty.
GUILT, Gah this is the worst feeling ever! It eats me alive. I suppose this is a really good attribute to have. So I am thankful for not being ashamed to speak my truth and be honest with the world. Let everyone know that we are all human and it takes time, patience, and practice. Honesty is so good.
