Honesty, yes, that thing that some people aren’t very good at. There is actually a very big importance on being honest. Things don’t happen instantly, but, over time people will begin to trust you.
And, with trust, trust grows. People then share secrets with you, and, you’ll start to recognise that your history becomes your best selling point. What do I mean by that? – As you become more honest, when “someone” spreads a rumour or the secret slips out, they know it’s not you.
I know it’s cheesy, and I know its a cliche but when I say to someone “I promise I won’t tell anyone” I mean it. And, I don’t. The worse thing in the world is when someone tells one person in the hope they won’t spread, then, that “one” person tells just “one” more and it spirals.
If I’m the “one” and the first it won’t go further, and, my friends know that. Don’t get caught up in gossip, don’t think you need to share to be popular, just be a truly honest person. (And, if everyone did, wouldn’t the world be a better place)
