    Try To Be Honest But It Backfired

    I agree honesty is the best policy but when I did that a few years back it backfired and I lost who I thought was my best friend.

    In a relationship, of any kind,

    if you do not have trust, then you do not have anything. Once it is gone, it is hard to get back. In some cases, it is impossible.

    Honesty is important is any type of

    relationship, whether it's between a friend, a lover, family member or even a stranger. If you know what it feels like to be lied to, then why do it to someone else? Your opinion matters.

    An Honest Friend Is A Precious Gift

    My dearest friend is here at EP. We have built our relationship on mutual trust. I have never lied to her and never will and she has done the same with me. We are each other's confidante.

    It Definitely Is...

    I have a friend that I used to be really close with, but it seems like she is the type to tell these fantastic stories. I can't really trust her at all. I really wish our friendship could be saved, but I really think we are losing it. I can't stand being lied to. She is always...

    I Agree To A Point

    I think honesty is important though certain things are okay to remain hidden. People have all sorts of backgrounds and histories and sometimes they don't feel comfortable talking about things. Sometimes they will not tell the truth about it in order to hide it. If I see that it...

    In any relationship (even

    if it isn't romantic) honesty is always the best policy. As it relates to couples, it is never a good idea for either person to hide what they are feeling from the other person. I know first hand what it is like to conceal your intentions or feelings of uneasiness, and to see...

    I think honesty is important in a friendship.

    But recently someone who is very dear to me began to be less than forthright. There are times when it is obvious she is lying but she simply denies it. She has had a difficult past and one tries to be understanding but she doesn't tell the truth. She feels totally justified in...

    In any friendship honesty is a must.

    You may like your friend because of what they do or say. But if you can't be honest if you see they are about to make a big mistake, then what hope is there for you when the fortunes are reversed?
