I go back and forth. If someone asked me if a dress looked good on them and I thought it looked horrendous, I would probably tell them that we should keep searching to find something that might look even better. If someone asked me if I thought they were ugly, I would vehemently say NO, even if they were f-u-g-z. In this regard, politeness neatly lends itself to white lies; we tell them so we don't hurt each other, but white lies are different than keeping something important secret. Whereas we tell white lies to make people feel good, we keep secrets to make ourselves feel good, which is inherently selfish, and ultimately not productive for anyone.
I had a strange experience this weekend, and I think I'm going to write about it. I think it would be hypocritical for me to talk about honesty and then keep this to myself. A lot of what I observed should be stated, explored, picked apart. If I want to keep this blog for myself and not pander to those more powerful, then I think it's important I say these things. It's going to piss some people off, which I hate doing, but I believe that ultimately putting everything out in the open could end up being the right move. I just have to remember that as long as I'm doing what I think is right, and speakin' mah truth, then things will turn out for the best.
