I Believe Honesty Is The Best Policy

If you never do anything to be "ashamed" of, You wull NEVER Deceive. 877 People

    I'm no expert in relationships by far,

    but I do know it feels good to be honest and let out all the bad things early to your partner before it bites you in the *** later.

    honesty is always the best policy,

    but when it's just negative opinions, you can **** off.

    All moral arguments aside, it's easier to be honest.  Telling the truth, you don't have to remember what you said to who!

    Honesty Is The Best Policy

    In life I believe that honesty is the best policy and the truth will set you free always. For some people being honest and forthright is a hard battle, and some people lie constantly and it is not a good trait to develop. Some people lie day in and day out and I know that the...

    Always be honest about the way you feel.

    (about the behaviour of a person how it affects you, the impression you get by words someone is telling you) If you're not being honest, the other person will think their behaviour is 'OK', or their choice of words are 'OK'. Stay true to yourself. Be honest. Because if you won't...

    Yes I Do!

    Take it from someone, who was not always an honest person, that its just easier being honest, you don't have to remember all the lies, and you don't have to worry that everytime someone says "we need to talk" its about finding out about your lies. I learned the hard way, but...

    We tell a lies when we are afraid .

    .. Afraid of what we don't know, afraid of what others will think, afraid of what will be found out about us. But every time we tell a lie, the thing that we fear grows strong.

    Livin' An Honest Life.

    I don't know why people have to lie all the time. Especially when 99.9% of the time, all liers get caught out. Honesty is definately the best policy. If you live an honest life I think you'll end up happier.

    It's silly. I see people complaining

    because their affair partner screwed them over. Isn't that what you're doing to your spouse? It's ok to hurt your spouse who has been committed to you for a number of years but not ok for some other married person to screw you over? Seems pretty simple don't have an affair!

    In All Things

    I believe that honesty is best in every situation. I think that so long as people use tact then the truth is always the best answer.I have learned over the years that the truth and bluntness are two different things. You can be honest without being blunt and callous. I know that...

    My ex boyfriend lied a lot during the course of

    our relationship. It got the point where I was accusing him of lying, when he actually wasn't. It totally messed me up. I can't actually differentiate been truth and lies anymore.

    It's amazing how long it actually takes people

    to get it (me included). Uncomfortable, yes. Ugly, sometimes. The cause of my foot in mouth syndrome, probably. Am I sorry? Nope. It's my policy.

    I have noticed recently that a number of people feel that if you say you do not lie then you MUST be lying...really? One of my favorite quotes from Mark Twain is as follows: Yes, I know how to lie but I won't.  I feel it is a choice we make and don't understand those who...

    Honesty Never A Weapon!

    There's so much beauty in truth. Unfortunately there's a dark side to truth as well. As I grow older I realize sometimes the truth is better unspoken. Example: Anyone that has been in a 12 step program knows making amends is cardinal to healing. The problem with that is the...

    I Always Try.

    Just recently, I let an untruth go by me. I haven't told a lie since I was ten years old but, just recently... I didn't tell the truth. It killed me. It was something I had no reason to lie, and I didn't even directly lie but, it just bothers me so very much that I let such a...
