Above all, don’t lie to yourself. The man who lies to himself and listens to his own lie comes to a point that he cannot distinguish the truth within him, or around him, and so loses all respect for himself and for others. And having no respect he ceases to love. ~ Sony Kharoud
Truth is good. Life is too short to tell lies.
If someone is doing things that they must lie to others about then those lies will be exposed soon enough and once the lies are revealed that’s a person I decide not to keep in my life. I want only real people that can be themselves without lying. Lies only cause pain and I prefer joy and transparency. In this life one thing I know is that I have no control over other. I can only try to control who I allow in my life and how I respond to it. I must still show grace to liars, although I do not need to keep them close. ~ Natalie Rios
I appreciate genuine and honest individuals. I feel blessed and grateful to have them in my life or even just cross my path. I respect everyone regardless of who they are as a person and regardless of how they’ve treated me. To respect means to respect everyone and everything not only a select few. ~ Sibel Mordeniz
Real intentions! Real communication! Being real is where it all begins. Straight to the point. No time for lies or being fake. Don’t waste anyone’s time. Respect is earned. You don’t get respect just by being present. Your character and your intentions determine if you get respected. So be real and have good intentions. Respect may come your way. Be true! Be you! Be real! ~ Crystal Wade
