Most people fail to walk their TRUTH, fail to be true to self and others at the same time. Being honest never comes easy, but it’s easier than any kind of lie/deceit or hiding something. This is what sets a truthful person apart from random crowd. TRUTHFUL OR A HONEST PERSON, i am talking about.
They own up to their mistakes. Honest people have all kinds of amazing traits, but obviously no one is perfect. Everyone makes mistakes, but what sets honest people apart is their willingness to take responsibility and apologize when they mess up. You’ve probably encountered someone who’s bad at saying sorry. Instead of owning up to their mistakes they’ll make excuses or apologize that you experience negative feelings, not that they did something wrong. Honest people are different. Those with integrity seek the truth, even if the truth exposes them for doing something wrong. They will swallow their pride and their ego for the sake of an authentic and sincere apology. Telling the truth doesn’t come naturally. Defense mechanisms, like blame projection and deceit are much easier alternatives in the moment, but avoiding responsibility only creates more trouble.
Hopefully this will help you identify if you are someone honest or someone in your life is truly honest. It might also make you realize that perhaps you’re not as honest as you thought. Nevertheless we should all pursue truth, even when it seems daunting and difficult. The world needs more honesty. If you lie about who you are or about someone else, what actually happened or how you feel, you’ll only dig yourself deeper into a problem of your own creation. The choice is yours. Be honest or lie, what you choose will impact your life immensely.
