Playin’ the Numbers: Truthfulness

Why can’t we all tell the truth all the time? And didn’t Jim Carey and Ricky Gervaise already star in those? No, yes they di’ent. — BadWitch

Readers Are Spellbound & Perplexed…

Dear GWBW — I would say I’m 90% if not 95% truthful. Why is it so hard for me to go all the way on the small things sometimes? I really want to be a 100% honest but not a sucker. Do you think this is even possible? Numbers Player


Dear Numbers Player,

A QUESTion for the ages. If we were perfect, why the heck would we need to be here to practice, learn lessons of how to be…better? The small things are usually the hardest things, as well. Think about living with someone you really like or even love. It’s not the big life questions that, on average, get people — but the squeezing the toothpaste tube-esque ones. The annoying niggling things in your saddle you don’t often realize. Those are the things you might want to really take a look at, with regard to your honesty-dishonesty practice. The only other thing I have to contribute is that life is all about probabilities. From physics to insurance tables, there’s no such thing as a sure thing.

Only the naïve believe in absolutes,



Dear Numbers Player,

What is with the questions this week? Is it possible? Can it be done? Listen, either you have the will to do what you will or you do not. Either you want to be a truthful person or you don’t. Yes, life will throw you curve balls when being fully honest is neither compassionate nor kind. So, what’s more important?

Listen, either you can be an honest person or you can’t. And what separates the two is no more than your will and repeated practice. Either you set yourself to the task like any person working to create a new habit engrained to truth.

I can’t tell you what is possible. That is for each and every person to decide. Either you believe living an honest life is worth the work or you don’t. I can tell you from experience, however, an honest life is a lot less work. No lies to remember. What you see is what you get. Kind of leaves more time for you to be you…and develop some other well-engrained habits. Evolution is great. Everyone should try it.

Good luck,
