honesty is only a myth. to be totally honest, you also have to be totally cruel, but also completely full of guilt to need to profess everything honestly all the time. I don’t know if anyone has EVER been completely honest 100% of their lives, because they would’ve been killed during childhood.

being able to trust, when trust is unthinkable. ones true inner self, but most are unable to see themselves.

In a world of lies and tricks,
What is there to believe.
Even your own mind is not honest with yourself.
Boy, what a world we live in….

David had never considered himself to be gay, if he had to be honest. He’d never really considered anything but traditional heterosexuality. But falling into this… whatever-it-was with John had just seemed natural.

Why do I have to be honest about anything? We’re raised on multiple lies throughout our lives! You’re told that there’s only one God, and while that’s true in some respect, Mohammed is out there talking about how Allah is the only one too.
By KC on 06.30.2011
no lies, just truth. What one thinks, but never willingly shares. Secret are wrapped in honesty with a dark shade of deceit. Everyone strives to know the truth, but are often reluctant to be honest themselves. The hardest part is being honest with yourself when you don’t want to acknowledge your faults.

the words just never came quickly
and to be completely honest
that wasn’t the only thing that didn’t come
I didn’t lie
for your pride
I did it for me and mine
just so you know
what was really going on down below
so I could stop suffering
and you’d stop your stuttering.

Honesty comes in many shapes and forms, its one of the most important things to a human being…It makes someone loyal and trusting, which isnt very common in our world today.
By Tess on 06.30.2011
honest to god I didnt do it. But the thing is, no one believes me. not even my friends, or my siblings, or even my parents. it’s like they’re all against me, like they’re plotting to get me sent away from here, away from anywhere.

honest, she is, what she promised when she was drunk, aged twenty in a bar on third avenue, holds true today, honest, trustworthy, there forever and she’ll be there for my children if I die, she is good people

Honest is something I know I’m not. Every time I’m in a relationship, I end up lying to the other person… I seem like I’m being honest, but really I’m seeing at least 2 others behind his back. That’s a lot of stolen, dishonest kisses.

* Jenn, that kanji tramp stamp you got on South Padre Island doesn’t mean honest.
* It doesn’t?
* No, it says, “I met six guys in a fraternity, went back to their hotel room, and had sex with all of them.”
* Nobody knew about that! How did you know about that?
* YouTube. I was joking about the kanji, though. It really does mean honest.

Let’s be honest, when are we always honest? Really, is there one human being who has been honest his whole life. Sure…
By Madi on 06.30.2011
How did we get there in the old trees by the loch shore – in a boat they told me across the river and then down the hill – carried by the families of those who were losing the old world to move to the new = and they told me strories as they went singing songs

oh dear god. honesty. is it good? is it good to be completely honest in every situation? that’s what everyone says but then you regret saying the whole truth and who really needs to know the whole truth? i’m not so sure honesty is always the best policy.
By Potato Pancakes on 06.30.2011
Not many people have this characteristic all of the time. I mean.. it’s hard to be honest constantly. It’s hard not to even bend the truth a little, or tell a white lie. It’s not the easiest thing in the world to even.. tell someone you like their haircut when you don’t. The world may be full of honesty, but it’s just as full of dishonesty.
By Katie URL on 06.30.2011
people being honest is the most important thing in the world. Honesty is what gets you places. Lying just eats you away, when you lie you have to come up with more lies to cover the first one. Whats the point? just tell the truth. Honesty will get you to far places.
By stephanie on 06.30.2011
I wish people were more honest with me. I hate being lied to. It makes me feel dumb, as though they think I cannot understand or handle the truth. Maybe, some truths scare me, but I’d rather have people treat me with the same courtesy I treat them with.
By hamayal on 06.30.2011
honesty is a tough thing to do, being honest takes courage and determination. i am not good at being honest. im not very courageous.i wish i was more honest
By Katie on 06.30.2011
i am not. i cant be trusted. i am in every major city. in every house. i am you.
By malkiz on 06.30.2011
Whenever I write, whatever I write,
I always forget to be honest to myself.
I keep on thinking what others might think and say when they read my work.
I can never write like no ones watching.

It’s confusing when no one is honest. But when I think you’re honest, I think you’re lying because I don’t like what I’m hearing.
By Stephanie on 06.30.2011
Honesty is the one thing I would love to have in my life. Honesty is that something that you can give me?
By That Girl URL on 06.30.2011
To be honest, I did not know what to say. They stared at me, expecting something. I didn’t want to lie and tell them that everything was happy. I didn’t want to lie and say that everything was dreadful. Could I tell them, that I didn’t find happiness here? But somehow, at the same time, would not choose another place to be? I couldn’t say the right words. So that’s what I said. I hope, to them, it felt honest.

As she started to stumble over the piles of worn-out books, he reached for her hand, barely catching it within his own. She looked up, shock grazing her features, before pulling back. “You know, you didn’t have to do that. I always catch myself.”
“I know, and to be honest, I hate that. You shouldn’t have to catch yourself, and although I’m here, you never let me do it for you.”
By Luhan URL on 06.30.2011
It about people be straight foward and forgetting about whats best for them and just saying it whether it ruins something else. I don’t know. Honesty is the best policy, its always the way to go. there are never any regrets with honesty because at least poeple are telling the truth.
By Devon on 06.30.2011
Honesty IMHO is not always the best policy, I mean really? You can’t always be honest….Not to say you need to lie. But sometimes you just can’t tell everyone everything… Its not healthy I’m sure. Secrets must be kept, not just yours but the ones you are entrusted with… thats pretty much all on that word.
By Kristi on 06.30.2011
Honesty is a quality I cherish in humanity. It pains me to think that this quality is becoming distinct with the youth of today. Many would rather lie to remain cool under the many pressure of young life.
By casey on 06.30.2011
honesty is the feeling you get when raw emotion takes the place of false words
By Robyn on 06.30.2011
I always try to be honest. With others, at least. It’s a little harder being honest with myself, when there’s already so much hate swimming around my mind like vicious, steely sharks. Always lurking, always waiting to leap up and bite, to scream at me that I’ve done the wrong thing. Perhaps it’s just easier to kid myself, to find a snake-ish route out of my false logic. I really should learn.
By The Oracle URL on 06.30.2011
To be honest is harder than most people want it to be it involves being open and raw and vulnerable. It scares people and most of the time its easier for people to put up a wall and just lie.
By Miranda on 06.30.2011
eso es lo que la ayoria de las personas se les olvida, sería el mundo más sencillo si en realidad fueramos honestos primero con nosotros mismos y después con los demás. La vida sería más transparente y por consiguiente l

honestly I don’t know what I’m doing. I stumble from day to day with less entertaining results than StumbleUpon which brought me here. If only you could upload a StumbleUpon app to my brain that could lead me to more interesting places in my real life…

She looked at him with the eyes of saddeness and all he sad to her was “I lied” and that hit her like a rock, no more a boulder because not only was she realizing everything she believed in was utter bullshit but that she was also living his lie
By Mandy on 06.30.2011
It’s too hard to be honest–is it a religious thing or are there a bunch of different honests? How honest was the guy that made it up? Honest Abe–yeah, but they weren’t really free, were they? “Honest Injun?” “Honest Injun.”
By Chelsea on 06.30.2011
hunger. I don’t know why I thought of that… maybe it’s because it looks similar. Or maybe because hunger breeds honesty, because it’s one of our deepest and most humane needs, and without satisfying it, we perish
By Ana on 06.30.2011
Hell who the fuck is honest any more you go down the street to do laundry and you got your neighborly bum sittin asking for money for food when all he wants is beer or cigarettes hell I love it when I come across some one that’s honest I hits me so hard I think thief not normal cause it’s such a rare thing now days to find someone that tells the truth
By Peter on 06.30.2011
I want the world to be an honest place. Why do we lie? Why do we seek to harm each other with out words like weapons, with lies and deceit? Honesty leads to unity. Honesty could make our world a better place. So, why lie? Why not create the world we want?
By A on 06.30.2011
Sometimes, to be honest is a curse. It’s something that people expect, they assume that everyone who is good is honest. But when they see that there is a person who is being completely honest, they look down upon them for being too brutal, or too rude. It can be a cures
By Kendall Wood URL on 06.30.2011
Honestly I’m angry, well not as angry as a couple people are, because that’s just who I am. Honestly I’m depressed, very confused, and a little betrayed. How could she do this? Well i’m not really blaming her. I’m pretty sure this wasn’t her decision. I wish I knew more.
