For me, being honest is something I find to be so important in any relationship. Including friendships. To me, in order to stay sane, you have to stay honest. Maybe that’s just me.
Being honest can be uncomfortable a lot of times. But the more you do it, the easier it is to be. I used to be so lost around the road that is honesty. I never knew how to say how I felt even when my soul was dying to tell the person. I was scared of what the other person would think of me or of they would stop talking to me (in this scenario I am talking about a boy) but the more I did it, the better I felt.
This person I recently stopped “talking” to would not be honest with me even when I gave him every opportunity to be. I would tell him that it was okay if he didn’t want to talk to me and he was not honest even after that. But man, I was so honest with him. I would tell him that it made me anxious when he wouldn’t reply to me because so many others have just left without telling me why and stopped talking to me completely out of nowhere, and it’s happened so many times that I’m afraid every guy will do that. I expect it. He told he would never do that. But, here we are. He did the exact thing he said he wouldn’t. All because he was scared of being honest.
If you are scared to get honest and think it’s better to just not say anything at all or worse, lie, you’re wrong. Be honest. Even if it’s not what they want to hear. Honesty is good and in some cases doing someone a kindness. I refuse to believe that being honest is uncool. Being honest is THE COOLEST. And don’t you forget it.
