Honesty cuts through deception and knifes its way through deceit and lies. Honesty promotes openness, empowers us and enables us to develop consistency in how we present the facts.
Honesty sharpens our perception and allows us to observe everything around us with clarity. Lying is equally bad whether you are deceiving others or yourself.
We start messing around with our concept of morality, right and wrong, as well as our dreams and desires.
Times that I lied in order to do something that I knew was wrong, I could it.
Honesty cuts through red tape, distraction, frustration and indecision.
Honesty gets you where you want to go faster because you live how you really feel.
I was trying to pursue a sinful desire that would only, at best, produce temporary pleasure.
Lies I told were often due to a lack of effort, positive morals or thoughts.
Other times, I was convincing myself I wasn’t good enough or able to do something my heart was really set on.
Lying or presuming I knew something I didn’t really know was the easy path.
