HONESTY is one of the most liberating and valuable traits to develop - and it's even more valuable when you're dating. Even when it seems like it would push you and a partner apart, HONESTY has an amazing way of bringing you closer together and building more love and admiration. You have to know how to share your thoughts and honest feelings in a way that SERVES YOU and your relationship. Not all communication is equal. You can MEAN something, but depending on how you share it with someone... it can either be received as loving and "good"... or as NEGATIVE and CRITICAL.
