Now, lets get started!

In all honesty (did you see what I did there lol) this article is going to be much harder than some others I've written before. Why? Because it's very confronting to me. I've always been a very contradicted person, so these questions make me question myself. I guess this article will be more eye-opening to me than interesting to you hearters. Oh well.

1 | how often do you lie?

I don't lie often, but I do realize it happens at times, and when I do you probably won't be able to notice it. People have said that I'm a good liar, so I guess the six years of acting classes I followed in my free time have left something behind.

I don't like showing my feelings, so it's something I often lie about. It's more of a personal protection, really.

2 | honesty or loyalty?

I'm a very loyal person. I'd run through fire for the people I care about.

But that doesn't mean honesty is nothing for me. I think it's a very important capacity as well.

3 | on a scale from 1 to 10, how honest are you?

I guess I need to give myself a 7, just because I realize some people wouldn't agree with my honesty.

4 | do you always say what you really think?

I don't. I try to, but I hate hurting someone's feelings.

On the other hand, I'm a person with outspoken opinions. Topics as equality, politics and the world interest me a lot, and I'll make sure when I'm not agreeing with someone, he or she knows.

5 | have you ever lied to your parents?

I have, but it were small things. I have a very open relationship with my parents, so I'd rather be honest with them.

6 | have you ever stolen anything?

My mom likes telling the story of me taking some shining jewel with me from a fashion store, but I don't remember it myself. I was only a kid, and I probably wasn't realizing what I was doing. Apparantly, she made me bring it back, so all is well now.

7 | if you were a different person, would you be interested to be friends with someone like you?

I think I would. I'm caring, imaginative, loyal and respectful. I'm a person who will laugh with you during the good times, but cry along on the bad days.

8 | have you ever pretended to be someone's friend but you actually weren't?

I don't think I have. Being someone's friend means putting effort in the friendship, but if I don't like a person I wouldn't be able to do that. I'll be friendly, but not their friend.

9 | can you keep a secret?

Yes. I'm a very serious person when it comes to this.

When someone is telling you something personal, it's important for you to realize it's not something to play with. A person's thoughts and feelings is not something to share with anyone and everyone.

10 | why is honesty important?

Because honesty makes you trust someone, and trust is very important in every relationship.

11 | do you think you're a trustworthy person?

Yes. Even though I lie about my feelings and little/stupid things at times. I'm a very good listener, and I'll always give the advice I would want to hear myself. I'm open-minded and I try not to judge people before I know the whole story.

12 | is it hard for you to admit that you were wrong?

It depends on the topic, really. If it's something I have a strong opinion about, it'll be hard for me to admit that I was wrong. If it's about something I or my friends did, it'll take some time but I know I'll come around.
