Are you an honest person? I am. I am one of the most honest people you will meet. Straight shooter, no BS, honest to the core. People compliment me on this ability to tell it how it is all the time. And you would think this would help me build amazing relationships with people, that I would be dripping with friends since almost every damn person on this planet complains that people can’t be trusted. Nope, apparently honesty is only admirable as long as it doesn’t expose ones delusional state of bliss. You know what I mean. People want you to be honest with them until it exposes their reality, their weaknesses, their imperfections. At that point your honesty becomes offensive.
Maybe you think to yourself this honesty stuff is not all that beneficial. Perhaps a white lie here and there is what you need for relationships to exist.
OR maybe their inability to handle a perspective other than their own is NOT YOUR PROBLEM. Maybe you have leveled up and are miles beyond stroking someones ego in order to gain their approval. You are not the pain in the ass that can’t get along with others! Do not let other peoples insecurities get in the way of being who you are! You are a person who believes honesty is better than sugar coated bullshit and I am here to tell you that there are people that truly, HONESTLY, appreciate that about you!
I may not be perfect, but I am honest.
