    After growing up in a household lies were

    dished out like breakfast, lunch and dinner, and having going through a dishonest phase as an adolescent - honesty is my biggest value. I'd rather a harsh truth than a pretty, little fib..

    When Someone Is Honest With Me.

    I think the best thing in a friendship is honesty. I'm always as honest as I can be, as long as I like/trust the person and want to be friends with them. I appreciate when someone can be honest with me, even about the slightest things. Even if they think I wont like what they...

    Honesty about is what makes people respect you.

    There is nothing worse than liars. If you want others to call you a coward, look down on you, and scoff at you, then go ahead and lie. Just keep in mind that your lies won't last long before someone reveals them, while honesty will be remembered forever and mark you as a...

    Yes, it would be nice

    if more people were, but most are not. Not with you and not with themselves. It makes you appreciate the honest ones more.

    We have gotten too used to dishonesty,

    white lies, and we are the worst for it! Now, we think we must sugarcoat our relating to each other, and honesty is lost in this. I appreciate honesty, being told the truth, even if it's hurtful!

    I think honesty is more of an idea

    than an exact science. It may sound strange but try to imagine you are a soul with no body, you have put on many meat suits, you can see your triumphs and failures very very clearly. And after 1100 years in different bodies, could you pass judgement upon yourself? Love your...

    More than appreciate,

    I demand it. I cannot bear the thought of being lied to or misled. I don't get angry. I simply am hurt. Dishonesty is a lack of faithfulness , a betrayal. It can be forgiven, but repeated events indicate a deep problem in whatever relationship exists--lovers, familial, friends.

    Honesty is truly the best policy.

    I'd rather have someone be honest to my face than talk about me behind my back and then find out about it. Be truthful even though it may sting a little.

    I would rather have honesty

    than unanswered questions. For example, if you think I'm annoying, tell me. Don't gossip about it to your friends. How am I supposed to improve myself or less bother you if you don't tell me. Sure I may be a little shocked and sad but at least i will know how to behave better

    I like to know the truth.

    It makes things much easier. The truth is like a splash of cold water to your face. It stings at first, but you feel very refreshed afterward.

    I always try to be as honest

    as i can, with everyone i talk to. So if total honesty is what you like, we should talk, if not, then fair enough :) I dislike when people ask for your 'honest opinion' then act like you just punched them in the stomach just because they don;t like your answer lol

    Its the Key to Good Relations..

     Honesty to me is being forward or direct. No what ifs. No maybes. I will get back to you. That to me is like saying the checks in the mail. Be truthful with each other. Have issues don't hide from them. Take the positive approach and handle the situation. If you don't...

    Honesty and integrity go hand-in-hand

    and I appreciate both. What's the point of not being honest unless you particularly set out to deceive someone? And what's the point in that? Because what goes around, comes around, and all forms of lies and deceit always backfire on you and come back to bite you on the bum! I...
