Lesson learned

Honesty has always been a very important value to me. Looking back there were times that I felt hurt by honesty but then realized that it actually turned out well. Yes there is the old saying that the truth hurts, well up until today I would have considered myself an honest person. Sure when I was younger of course there were times I lied, but to the people who really mean something to me, I’ve ALWAYS tried to be as honest as possibly, regardless of if it hurt. Well no more!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I’m calling it quits on honesty. Why? Because being honest doesn’t really help everyone! I mean it may help me be able to sleep at night, but I’d much rather lose sleep and let the ones I love go about their lives in happiness.

Strange? I don’t really think so.  I think that most people would agree that ignorance is bliss……but maybe not!!! Either way, I have decided as of 11:29 pm on February 18, 2009 that I will no longer be an honest person. At least not in all situations. I’m sure most of you need a good reason why I’ve made this decision. Well, the biggest and best reasons I can think of is that I don’t want to hurt people AND when you are honest you rarely get rewarded or acknowledged for it! For example (a very trivial example) a boy tells a girl she has lip stick on her teeth, she probably won’t say thank you, instead she’ll be embarrassed.

Please share your wisdom……….don’t you think that there are times you should keep it to yourself?

    I could not agree more with you. It’s more withholding and not so much lying to our friends. I think it’s a fundemental part of becoming an adult!
