I believe in honesty - I do. But lately, I've been noticing that sometimes honesty inflicts more harm on the recipient / creates more problems and drama than a simple lie would have. That's annoying, right? I mean - I'm willing to suck it up and tell the truth even when it's hard for me, but I guess I thought the point of doing that is that that you're making the world a better place, you're being more fair to others, etc. And I guess maybe in the long run I am - but in the short run, I've had a few situations lately where I wished I'd just have lied.
I don't like that :/
But I'll keep telling the truth, because, well, it defines me. Even if it's hard for others to understand. Even if it's inconvenient. My truths are me, and I have to stand up for me.
