    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...

    Even Though It Sometimes Does Not Seem To Pay

    It was my schooldays. A rather naive language teacher said, before lunch, that he would test us on a specified passage of text, after lunch. A group of us spent the break checking the vocabulary. He found out that something had been going on and asked for those concerned to own...

    Plain Honesty

    Experience taught me that being dishonest leads to one thing and another. I used to fear rebuke terribly, so people around me just tell me sweet nothings instead, save for my family that is. I learned to to that to other people too. But slowly I learn that small lies gets bigger...

    Please And Thank You

    There are few things in life that I appreciate more than honesty. I grew up surrounded by lies, secrets, and deceptions and I just don't want that in my life anymore. So I maintain loving, honest relationships with those around me and ask that they do the same in return. I don't...

    People Should Be Honest

    I believe in nothing but the truth. There is no reason to lie because it corrupts your friendship and relationship with people. A liar will weaken their position and argument. Just like the boy who cried wolf, if you lie, people will no longer take you seriously. A truth teller...

    Honesty Is One Of The Best Qualities

    Honesty is so important in any person, a friend, a relative, a co-worker, a family member, a partner, a spouse, a stranger. I can't believe how rare honesty has become nowadays. People will lie, everyday, for mostly reputation, but also opportunities, money, etc. The ability to...

    IF........

    It's given with tact & respect. Of course I have also come to the conclusion very recently that you're being "honest" about how you "see" me.... well, that's not really truth. It's just how you "see" things. I'm finding it a lot easier now to...

    Honesty Keeps Things Simple

    I don't understand what compels people to be dishonest. It only serves to complicate their life and the lives around them. It causes people to harbour guilt and resentment and strips away trust in those around them. I can't wrap my brain around wanting those elements in my...

    Honesty is something a truly appreciate in

    someone. I don't like people who lie - I prefer honesty even if it hurts than continue with a life/relationship full of lies. If a person did something bad, I prefer to know it... If I did something wrong I also wanna know it. Much better this way.

    I really admire and respect an honest person. Brutally honest or not, it is much appreciated on my end. Before I can truly get close with someone, I look for them to be real with me as I am them. It's just a must.

    Because that is true, I will take the time to say that I am far from a liar. If you do nothing but lie to me, then you are lower than pond scum to me. I respect a nice, honest person. It is so hard to find people who are honest these days. I even respect brutal honesty. I would...
