Honesty may be the best policy. But honesty is not the most accepted policy. People expect you to be honest, but when you are honest… they just don’t accept it. The reason I say this, well… let me tell you in detail…
I am a honest person. I don’t hold stuff in. if a person asks me something, I say what I feel. Like I said, I don’t hold back. For example, a person asks me what I think of that person. And I give an honest opinion. If that person is a pampered, spoilt, rich kid who has no idea whatsoever what a hard life is, but thinks he/she does because he/she is going through a breakup, I say that he /she is a pampered, spoilt, rich kid who has no idea whatsoever what a hard life is, but thinks he/she does because he/she is going through a breakup. OR if a person is a self absorbed, self centered ego maniacal bitch/bastard, I say that he/she is a self absorbed, self centered ego maniacal bitch/bastard. This is wrong… apparently. I am, in fact, supposed to form an opinion, keep it to myself, take the opposite, sugar coat it, and blurt out the opposite, sugar coated one. No, it’s true. I’m not kidding… seriously. That, apparently is how we should voice our opinions. This was brought up by a friend of mine, who thinks life is all about bunnies and cuddly little soft toys. She MIGHT be one of the aforementioned descriptions of people.
Why the hell ask an opinion in the first place? That is what bothers me. If I ask an opinion of someone, I expect to be answered in full honesty. And that’s why I answer THEM (whoever) the way I do. But I end up being “harsh”. So, ok, maybe I am. But this is me. If you are gonna ask me, u better be ready for some truth. So, if you think about it… the truth DOES hurt, doesn’t it? Because we all know what we really are… but when we ask someone what they think of us, its really a test. “am I putting out the right image?” “do they know me for who I am or who I show them I am?” If you wanna hide who you are so much, … stay indoors.
If society wants wool put over its eyes on purpose, I say change the saying that honesty is the best policy. I say nowadays… honesty is the ‘not so smart’ policy. ‘coz they’ll say be honest, but what they really mean is “tell me what I wanna hear”. Well, you might as well, impale me with a hot iron, 'coz that never gonna happen.
