I am all about honesty.

I know this, but things like tonight just remind me of that. My faraway family can be so dysfunctional.

Healthy relationships necessitate honesty, even if what you’re disclosing may hurt someone. (This gets us into don’t-do-things-you-wouldn’t-tell-people-about territory, which is shaky ground, because say you’re non-heterosexual but a lot of people in your world are homophobic -- there you have to go with what you know is right, but generally i think only doing things you’re willing to admit to is a good rule to abide by.) And really, lying makes things so complicated -- you have to keep track of who knows what and what stories you made up.

There are things i choose not to disclose/discuss in here, just as there are persons i choose not to tell about this journal. A conversation with a friend tonight reminded me why it’s a bad idea for me to be vague.

Also, this is so true.

I’m not really going anywhere with this, am just in a mood.

In case it wasn’t clear already, please always be honest and upfront with me. If you disagree with me, if you have a problem with me, whatever, tell me. I am all about honesty and disclosure. Really. Sometimes i still have to work on it, but i’m trying.
