Honesty & Truth


What’s wrong with a little honesty? Nothing! As long as it’s presented in a way that’s not hurtful or malicious. honesty is one of the qualities I admire in people. I’ve always found it easier to deal with an honest person who tells the truth, good or bad. I’d rather hear someone’s honest opinion or comments, than bullshit. I can never understand how someone thinks they’re being kind or helpful by lying to you.
People don’t always like to hear the truth. Especially when it’s something that will end up hurting their feelings or destroy the truth as they know it.
This is especially evident in relationships. It’s hard to tell a good friend that her husband/boyfriend has been unfaithful, but in the long run, a good friend would be honest. You think by not telling a friend the truth, that you’re sparing them heartache. How would they feel if they found out eventually, and then found that you knew about it, and said nothing. Then they’re hurt by two people they thought cared about them.
I have two friends that I can be completely honest with and are honest with me. These are people I trust with my secrets and they trust me with theirs.
It’s the same with anything else in your life. A job, family, friends, etc., honesty and truth are necessary for trust.
Who likes lies and betrayal anyway?
