Hey Kid: Genuine

I've been accused of not having a filter.  That means I have a tendency to say whatever is on my mind even if it may not be at an appropriate time or place.  Most of the people in my life are aware of this characteristic and have learned not to take things too personally or to take offense.  Some of the people in my life have not quite learned how to take me... but we're working on it. The positive thing about this personality trait is that what you see is what you get.  There is no pretense with me.  You'll always know where you stand.

Be genuine in all that you say and do.  Don't worry about what others will think or say.  You must be true to yourself and who you really are at all times.  It drives me crazy when people pretend to be something they are not.  I would much rather have respect for someone who lives their life in a genuine manner.  Even if I don't agree with their behavior or their choices.
