Honesty.

In my life there are a couple of things that I hold above all others - love, kindness and honesty.

Sometimes its hard to be honest. Honesty can bring you a whole pile of trouble. But, at the end of the day I have to live with myself, look my boys in the eye and know that I am a good person, an honest person, who does the right thing. As I write this I see that I have had over 100,000 views of this blog and one of the reasons people come to read is because I am honest. Not in a way that is the current trend - be honest to the point of brutality because we can all just say what we like and be damned with how other people feel. I try to be honest and kind.

There are times in your life when you feel lost and bruised, but if you know that honesty, integrity, kindness and love are core to your make up then you just have to hold on to that belief - that you are ok, you are a good person, an honest person.

Even if other people might doubt me sometimes, I know that I am a good person. The people who know me well know this too. Sometimes life can leave you feeling bruised and hurt, but you just have to hold your head up high and carry on.

Honesty and kindness are a fine balance. And like you say, it's harder to find these days when people feel it ok to be brutally honest. Plus you don;t gloss over everything. So fed up with people that just can't say eggs or salt, it has to be organic eggs and sea salt. There's so much blah blah blah out there, I just can;t listen any more....

Honesty, integrity and sincerity - yep, I find them all here. Your kindness shines through, too. I do hope you aren't feeling bruised and hurt at the moment.

There are times when you know you've done the right thing, but you still question yourself. I'm going through that at the moment. I know I have done the right thing, but other people have made me lose my confidence and doubt my abilities. Head down ... I'll get over it!! After all - worse things happen at sea as my mum always says!!

I agree. nothing pains me more than when a friend or family member jokes and says "ooh you little liar" I hate it. Yes I embellish some stories when writing (mainly for the comic value) but I tell the truth. Why can't others be as honest though? I have struggled with trust my entire life especially when I found out at 14 years old my brother had a different father to me. I don't think anyone should hide the truth. Unless of course its regarding Santa for Christmas ;-) xx
