Day 3- Be honest
Honesty is the best policy. Learn to be honest with yourself. Learn to be honest with your friends or those you associate yourself with.
Life can be deceitful, people learn to lie to your face however, if you can be true to your word, you are respected more. Not fearing if someone might find out that that you lied can take a huge burden off your shoulders. If you always stick to the truth, you don't have to spend your time trying to make up a story. Your answer will always be the same regardless of who asks you.
People talk, rumors spread, and what you say to one will travel like wildfire. Do not get caught up in that mess. Trust that the truth will always rise to the surface. If not, you will end up hurting someone in the process of the lies as well as creating a relationship that is not trustworthy! Learning from experience, if you don't want someone to know something, don't say it out loud. You will always have that fear that someone spilled your secrets keeping you on edge.
One more thing that I learned is that your worst truth is ALWAYS better than a lie. People will respect you more if you just say what you mean and in turn mean what you say. Once you break trust with people, it is never fully gained back. The words "I am sorry" can only work so many times before they mean nothing. Even if you turn a new leaf, the person you lied to will always question you.
Be honest. Especially when it comes to yourself !
