Jazzy Does 100 Days of Happiness 25
All of this is true, but that last sentence is the kicker. I should make it my mantra so I’ll never forget it. If I can’t trust anyone, it means I can’t be trusted either. If I think someone is not telling the truth, it’s because I would also tell that lie. The things I don’t like in other people are exactly the things I hate about myself.
Funny how that works. Funny how it takes some of us our whole lives to figure it out.
It is always the best policy to speak the truth, unless, of course, you are an exceptionally good liar.
(Jerome K. Jerome)

Fiction please. Non-fiction can be pretty fictional too if the facts come straight out of the author’s biased and opinionated little head.
I’d rather read a story based on fact than the other way around. Which would be facts based on stories or stats or evidence. Or the truth, or the only way to do something right, according to some expert know-it-all.
Give me keen and insightful observations, and let me figure the rest out on my own.
The honest truth is scary stuff! Just tell me what you think I want to hear and I’m good with that.
