So, my spring resolution is to be more honest. I started at the beginning of this past week and I did not realize how many "lies" I tell on a daily basis. It's definitely going to be harder than I thought. What I've also realized is that a lot of people don't want to actually hear the truth. So here's the question: do you like it when people are completely honest? I know everyone says they do, but my question is whether you actually do. Also, how can you be honest without being a "jerk." A lot of situations that come up are ones where if I'm honest I feel like I'm being mean, but I really want to try to be totally honest. I'm talking about total honesty. As an example, if I'm talking to someone and they say something that I don't really care about, the "polite" thing to do is to keep listening and pretend to be interested. The honest thing to do is to say that I'm not interested/don't care what they are talking about.
