    If I’m Honest…

    You know the saying, “To be honest”, or “If I’m honest”, or “Let’s be honest”? When we use those sayings, it’s usually around a subject that is a struggle in some way, or a sensitive subject. Maybe it’s something that someone is admitting, or commenting on someone one else, (not always nicely).
