guilty as everything

one of my biggest pet peeves is dishonesty. of all sorts. there is one that particularly hurts my feelings. that is the partial truth conversation. when someone tells you what they think you want to hear so as not to hurt your feelings. or they only tell you what will place him/her in the best possible light by leaving out specific details/information. problem is, we all know when people do this. a pause. a look. a tone. an avoidance. i know...i've done it too. and probably not that long ago.

that said...one of my biggest admirations is when people are honest no matter the desired outcome. i was talking with a friend last night about this. we had both been in situations when honesty was hard. BUT each time, those relationships were made stronger. built sturdier. surrounded by a trust that only a true friendship can reveal.

nothing major to report here. was just thinking about this today since the conversation last night. i like it. :D
