Honesty

In today's world all sorts of things are going on, some of which are not in the highest interest.  Some people thrive on taking advantage of others to further themselves.  This makes it hard to be trustworthy.  In my third book I'm writing about the honor and trust system.  I write about the importance of giving your word when you interact with others.  In order to be trustworthy you need to be honest with people.  Doing this makes others able to count on you.  One person in the book stresses that it is possible to live this way even if there is chaos around you.  You have to start with yourself.

In Jackie's Awakening I write about trustworthy people.  Someone could come to the aid of another because that person has something that is important to them.  The first person is first giving of themselves to this other person.  Also they are putting their trust that this person is not going to take advantage of them.  The second person too needs to respect what it is that they are borrowing from the first person.

Also I write about what can go wrong when a person is dishonest.  I don't know how they can be happy with themselves.  They lie, cheat, and take things for their own needs. They don't take the time to think about how they are hurting others with their actions.  Also they have no idea that they are hurting themselves.  In Jackie's Awakening there were such characters who did just this.  

Good news is that things are changing.  More and more people are starting to wake up.  They are going within and working on their issues.  By doing this they are changing their exteriors for the better.  Not just for themselves, but for all.  Most importantly they are beginning to love themselves.  By doing this they can now extend that love outward.

  1. Honesty is the best policy no matter who it hurts! It's part of the genetic makeup that we're honest to a fault, but those that are dishonest are not just hurting themselves, but other's around them. I was my own worst enemy as a teen. I relate to dishonesty too well. As I got into young adult hood, I was dishonest a lot. Through my soul searching for the last couple years and recently did a 360 degree transition on myself, today I can say that I'm honest to a fault. I finally realized that being dishonest to myself was hurting myself too. I couldn't look myself in the mirror. Today I finally can!
