Price of honesty
How much would you be willing to pay for honesty? And how big a price would be willing to pay in order to remain honest? Is honesty over rated? Old fashioned? Do you find yourself wishing that others were more honest with you? Or do you wish that you could be more honest with others? Do you find yourself drowning in white lies, trying to keep the peace? Or do you find the courage to be honest no matter the price?
I’m not upset that you lied to me,
I’m upset that from now on I can’t believe you.
My faith in people took a hit recently. A big hit. It caused me to pause and reconsider the trust that I bestow on others, whether that trust was earned or not. The lesson from all that self-reflection is that it is not others that we need to trust, it is ourselves. We have to trust our own instincts, our gut feelings, our own assessment of others. When push comes to shove as long as you trust yourself, go out and be yourself. The rest of the world will reflect back mostly that which you project onto it.
