Honesty is a virtue, however it is also a curse. I am honest
to a fault revealing things about myself that I should not.
It has caused me grief and loss when others use this
information to take advantage of me. I do not think well
of myself and I believe that this is heart ache enough.
As they say no good deed goes unpunished. I have made
my life an open book and my emotions as well, that upon
examination paints too clear a picture. I have none to hold
responsible for this except myself. From now on my door
is locked and there is no key.
