Do you think it is important to be honest with people even if that honesty causes pain?
- Yes, they say “the truth hurts” & this is probably true many times to begin with, but in the long run it creates for a more successful relationship if the person is understanding of where you are coming from and if your able to empathize with the persons whom you are speaking your mind to. There is a HUGE difference between being a b**** and being honest and many people don’t have that clear understanding; so it comes from experience in how one should handle the situations. I always prefer it when people are honest with me — no matter what, because it will only strengthen me to know the truth vs living within a lie that usually unfolds at some point and causes more pain to the individual. Why create trust issues in the first place, if you don’t have to?

You can assume I have a love for fitness & a love for Wonderwoman -- both assumptions are correct.
I am an ACSM certified personal trainer of 8+ years -- I currently reside in Ohio and live a simplistic life at the age of 29. If I am not lifting, I am eating, sleeping, traveling, exploring, or movie watching. I recently moved during a pandemic, now I am focused on self care (self love), building a business of my own in personal training, becoming a professional blogger, starting a podcast and doing things that make me happy! I am a sister, daughter, and loyal friend --- I love everyone's dog and I am on a mission to pet as many dogs as possible everywhere I go! LOL.
My mission is to talk health (physical/mental), design programming, motivational speak, learn, grow, prosper, build others and make as many people smile as possible because I want nothing more than to be the change I seek in the world.

Honesty is good. Brutal honesty, not at all. Ever. Most people use brutal honesty simply to be brutal. Just like you eluded to. Nice post.

I think it is important to be honest but it is the presentation of expressing the honesty. I firmly honesty can be taken in for growth if presented in the right tone and words or it can be negatively to humiliate or stun the growth. It’s in the presentation
Yes, I definitely agree.
