100 Words – Honesty

[100 Words is a story in 100 words or less, based off the word in the title.]

Not truth. Truth is about fact. Black and white. Right and wrong.

Honesty is about emotion. Feelings, raw and naked. It is crying, hard tears as you choke out secrets. It is screaming your hatred at someone. It is holding someone close as you confess your love for them.

If truth is factual, honesty is a choice. A choice to be vulnerable, a choice to lash out, a choice to admit something you don’t want to admit to yourself.

It is powerful, ever changing, fluid like feelings.

It is only yours to give.
