Straightforward is my middle name!
Truth—I am a person with compassion, drive, and a desire to make changes in this world and of people —when it is possible; Opposed to merely saying how bad the situation is or might be becoming.
Unfortunately—some people would rather say something, and then say I’m just joking. Guess what you should ask, WHY? What’s the reason for joking? Believe it or not—behind every ‘just joking statement is some truth.
Given the fact of becoming the object of contempt—I still prefer to be honest and tell the truth; sometimes, it might come off as harsh and harmful, by no means— is that the case. I wouldn’t say I like sugar-coating the truth. Get it out, over with it, and done with it.
If we lived in an idealistic world-people would be more apt to accept the truth, especially when they know it is true.
For the most part, the Commander-In-Chief has made not telling the TRUTH a significant portion of his Presidency. He spreads his pessimistic abstract thoughts on Twitter as if they are the gospel and nothing else.
He thinks everything is about him— and gets angry when others hit back in return. That said, his statement is always misleading; for this reason, I view him as a man that lacks Integrity and certainly should not be holding the highest job in the nation.
“The truth is like a piece of paper—once you crumple it up, it can’t be perfect again!”
Integrity is telling myself the truth. And honesty is telling the truth to other people.
There’s a difference between maliciously offending somebody – on purpose – and somebody being offended by…truth. If you’re offended by the truth, that’s your problem. I have no obligation to not offend you if I’m speaking the truth. The truth is supposed to offend you; that’s how you know you don’t get it. Brad Stine
A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words
Liars begin with making up falsehood that resembles the truth; then turn around and make the truth look like a lie.
When it comes down to the truth and lies—I would rather hear the painful truth than a comforting lie.
