Without thinking about it, I used to assume - subconsciously, I suppose - that honesty went without saying. I believed I was honest in everyday life unless I intentionally meant to be otherwise.
However, recently I’ve realized just how hard it is to be honest - with myself, or with anyone. As a result, I attempt to consciously think about my thoughts before releasing them to vocal fruition.
Because, without reevaluating every premeditated thought I own, how can I be sure they aren’t medieval comprehensions that have somehow weaseled their way through to modernity, contradicting everything I’ve come to believe as true since?
