Value Honesty

Good friends are hard to find.

Friends who are honest with you are even rarer.

I once recall a mentor teaching me the definition of the term “Rigorous Honesty”, which he defined as “abscence of the intent to deceive”

How many people do you know who are rigorously honest with you? Image 21

Are you rigorously honest with your family & friends?

Do you have people in your life that will gently call you out when you are wrong and guide you back?

Do you have people in your life who know all your secrets…and still like you…and vice versa?

I do and count myself fortunate.

You get it by giving it.

  3. Thanks…I’m embarrassed that I didn’t realize, until this morning that I spelled rigorous incorrectly…and it was one of my post popular posts of all time overnight….I hate when that happens.

    Nobody knows all of my secrets. I made the mistake of telling someone all my secrets, and then she divorced me.

    I love the way you share such huge truth in so few sentences! You inspire me. I have a couple of these type friends. They are few and rare and I treasure them.
