I am a lot of things, but dishonest is not one of them. I have accepted that aspect of myself as being both an attribute and a downfall. Why? Because with being as truthful as I am, I don't have the best filter. As I have gotten older, I have gotten a little better with knowing what may and what may not hurt someones feelings, but somethings just need to be said.
With me being a truthful person, I like to keep truthful people around me. My best friend is by far one of the most truthful people in my life. When I tell you she keeps it 100%, she gives no warning for what comes out of her mouth, she just says it. But that is one of the things that I truly respect about her; I never worry about her being fake or phony because shes a genuine person.
I have been around so many people who are one way around me and another way around everyone else, and that's what I cant deal with. I can deal with people who don't care for me for whatever reason. If you don't like me, that is your prerogative but be honest with me that you don't care for me. I can respect a person being that real with me because then I know where I stand with you. But, you never know where you stand with a fake person simply because you don't know whats genuine and what it is scripted.
I'm at point in my life where I have God and a group of people who I can count on to be there for me regardless of the situation. In life with gaining wisdom and getting to the root of what makes you happy, you begin to eliminate unnecessary aspects of life that are draining, and often times that is people.
This post isn't inspired by an event in my life, simply because I watched the Real Housewives of Atlanta Reunion! lol
