‘Honesty is the best policy, ever heard of…. ‘Speak the truth and speak it ever. Cost it what it will…he who hides the wrong he did. Does the wrong thing still’..?
Speaking the truth is the best thing in any given circumstance, it is not an option it is the right thing to do, it is just about the manner in how and when it is done… The timing is very important.’
Honesty is the best policy, it is a good thing to speak the truth and speak it ever… if you choose to hide the wrong, you will turn around and do the wrong thing again…
True friends will tell you the truth even if they are forthright. You may not feel like accepting their honesty, but a true friend will be honest with you.
It is our humanistic nature why we, so often, struggle to tell the truth, if one does lie it always come back to face the individual, so the best thing to do is to be honest from the start. Making excuses, making up stories, avoiding the questions, trying to go around conversations is just not the answer. The situations we face these days are that some people are afraid to speak the truth, to be honest with each other, probably because they are afraid of losing a friendship or because they do not want to offend their loved ones or their friends.
This can cause mistrust or insecurities among individuals/groups; the saddest thing is that some people tell tales to feel part of a group or to feel a sense of belonging. These things have consequences e.g. Have you ever been in a situation when you said to someone, ‘I went jogging’, but you know you didn’t – that can lead to mistrust…? BEWARE!!
Ask yourself this question, “Do I find myself making excuses, denying things, especially if you allow someone else to take the blame”? This behaviour will fester and becomes so chronic that you end up lying all the time for the simplest things.
