Say what you want.
Say what you mean.
MEAN what you say.
& be clear about your intentions.
If you avoid being upfront to spare someone's feelings, do them a favor and DON'T. People can appreciate the truth even if it's awkward. The only thing that lies contribute to, is inconvenience. I challenge everyone to take ONE encounter that makes them uncomfortable enough to fib and face it head on. Be honest and feel the repercussions. You will realize there are none. Be proud of who you are and bare your soul. Even in the smallest instances. Who wouldn't want their words to reflect their true self, opinions and intetions? Whose reality is a liar decieving? People don't want the bullshit. If you aren't being straight, just don't open your mouth. (Not to be harsh.)
In short, Be honest with yourself and others. Say what you mean, even if its not what people want to hear. Be upfront and REAL. Who can't respect that?
The truth shall set you free.
Stay true. Stay you.
