If you are someone who likes me or consider me a friend, this is something you deserve to know:
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.
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.
you are brave enough to admit it, so that is something....just dont fool yourself again lololol, anyway, people here will always be there for you......like me..
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.
Hi Pacal. And here some hubbers said you and froggy are one and the same . Whoever you are and whatever your hubber name is, you will always have lots of friends here in HP.
There is no need for an apology, I love you for who you are and always will !
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?
Next week my friend, making a space for it and worry not about wronging me, not many know the real me
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.
I am leaving and pulling all of my hubs now. I quit HP. I can't keep up with all this shit. I am too disheartened to continue. I cannot trust anyone anymore. Alas, such sadness to depart when I was having so much fun too. g'bye
ralwus, that's great because then you can spend a whole lot of more time on Who's loving you.
Really ? Are you leaving ?
and I was waiting for your bite !
it's good to see you too.
I just listened to Debi again. She is very nice.
I'm upset because I also find that Xtasis is the trolly tantrum whom I also find out is a woman. sheesh! When will it all end?
Well I may bite now. I suppose darkside and Pam Grundy are one and the same too. I thought I'd die when I found out cindyvine was actually goldentoad! oops!
This place just keeps coming up with the best stuff there is I tell ya.
I joined this site to meet real people as its just me and my old lady here in the woods. I was hoping to find love !

My main squidoo page has generated lots of sales for me.But despite sending 700 inbound visits in one day from a targeted outside source from to my main hub page, it has produced $-0-.I produce important, top quality information that is highly desirable. Squidoo enables me to promote a little. On...

I'm new here at HUB and every one of my hubs has warnings and I've been told that I will be terminated soon because everything I post is substandard. I have read all the Terms. I don't understand what I'm doing wrong and since I'm "punished" and none of them can be viewed, I...

I'm very disappointed in HubPages. Yes, I know ... I know ... we cannot opt out of their HubPro Basic program. And it's their site. Yadda, yadda, yadda--I get it. But that doesn't mean I'm not very upset. Make that pissed. I received one of those heads up emails, warning me that an unnamed hub of...

I would appreciate if Staff would tell me whether GamerGirl and Whitney, both of whom have chosen to crawl through all my output (output which staff courteously restored after I had totally deleted it on my sabbatical) and repetitively downthumb and flag me, have been assigned by staff as my...

It's been pointed out on another thread that the voting buttons probably mean people are LESS likely to use the "share" buttons.Hubbers like to support other Hubbers and it's all too easy to hit the voting buttons and think we've done our bit - when in fact, we've done almost...

Hi seasoned Hubbers.What does it mean when someone approves your comments on his/her hub, responds to them, then later removes your comments? It this acceptable behavior? It sure does make the string of comments that remain (only the hubber's own and those that agree with, them) read like a giant...
