  • People say they want honesty, but whenever I give them honesty they say I hurt their feelings. Well then don't ask for my "honest" opinion.

  • Honesty makes some people evil when its in their hands when they have to get some it makes them mad because they can give it better then take it.

  • Some people are more sensitive than others. I can dish and take honesty but others have the image of a hard shell but they are soft inside. Most of the time when someone says be honest, they really mean tell me what i want to hear only if it's good.

  • Cause the truth hurts. And few people are okay with facing their own truths even though they are blunt as baseball bats.

  • Some ppl say I'm too honest. Maybe that's why I only have 2 real friends. They can deal and appreciate my honesty. OP, I know how you feel.

  • There is honesty and then there is cruelty. It's okay to be honest but there is zero reason to ever be mean. When someone says you are hurting their feelings, my guess is that it was far more harsh than it needed to be.

  • Because the truth hurts and most people aren't willing to acknowledge their truth; it's easier to blame someone else.
