My public apology to my friends

    If you are someone who likes me or consider me a friend, this is something you deserve to know:

      No apology necessary like I said on your hub " A friend is a friend until the end." Nothing has changed for me. smile

    I was curious about your post and your hub.  I read the hub and at the end felt like the punchline was missing.  I was expecting a big personal revelation like "I'm gay" or "I'm a drunk" or "I'm an addict" or some such. 

    So I guess your punch line was, that among other things, you're going to stop telling what I call "Sweet little lies" so as not to hurt someone's feelings.  (Like discussed in the 1st video.)

    If this is the case, you may want to go back and reframe for context in the first and last paragraphs.  Just a suggestion.

      No. Sweet little lies will be the hardest to get rid of. I'm not really in the habit of hurting with words. If I feel I would I keep my mouth shut.

      And I didn't really lie to people. I just let them go with their assumptions about me without telling them they were false assumptions. So it's more like deception by doing nothing.

      But then there were occasions when I did tell lies so that people would accept me.

    i have another hubpages account- SquigglesMcBeebee. most people don't know that because he never talks in the forums. but he never does anything naughty or tries to fool anyone, and i don't think you ever did either. when this hub challenge is over, Squiggles will start hubbing his own brand of hubs.

    i don't know who Haunty is but i have noticed quite a few hubbers here have said they have lots of other Hubpages identities, not just one, so i don't think you're bad or anything.

    i think you're very brave.

    Thanks cosette.

    It is always nice to know there are people who deal with split personalities here at hubpages. It explains a lot.

    I'm a firm believer in the sweet little lie.  THere are times when I see no purpose in being honest, knowing that it will only hurt someone's feelings.  Unnecessarily in my view.  Contrary to the first video on your hub. 

    I'm a habitual offender of lies of omission too.  Definitely not worth all the anxiety of coming out as a non-believer to my [large extended] family.  Can't imagine ever telling my mom nor the aunts and uncles.

      That first video. The guys book is called Radical Honesty. I'm sure he wouldn't look very convincing if he were to promote sweet lies just because they are benevolent. As for me, I think there is always enough good to be found in people if you want to praise them and one doesn't need to make things up. But of course, there are situations when it's more important to make the person feel well that to be rigorously and inflexibly inclined to cleave to the truth just because it's the only truth. In my hub, I was thinking of a different sort of lie, the one that you create so that YOU could feel or look better not the other person. It's above all selfish.

    Everybody have their own reason for creating another account. Some have it to focus on a certain topic, some to have fun on the forums, some to start anew. Whatever your reason might be, I believe you are a good person and it is nice to meet you once again.

    Thank you, all of you. I am not a notorious liar I think. But I'd also like to say that when I said I lied to people I didn't mean I lied because I started another account. As you said, there is nothing wrong with that. smile

    Hi Pacal. And here some hubbers said you and froggy are one  and the same smile. Whoever you are and whatever your hubber name is, you will always have lots of friends here in HP.

      Thank you for the compliment, but I and frog are not one and the same. She is a much better person and I'd really not like to drag her into this.

      Thank you. Now that I know you better, I must say I wronged you in the past. I'm sorry for that. The same goes for you love wise.

      And have you got your aquarium yet?

          I think it's contagious. Luci started it and then I got a turtle too and now you're getting your aquarium back.

          Been having the turtle for some time now and I have to say it's interesting. I expected a close relationship between me and my pet, but he is afraid of me and when I pick him up he uses his claws (long ones).
          But I think it's a matter of time. Last time I tried he let me slightly caress his head. smile
