Honesty

Honesty is the best policy – why have so many people forgotten that?

We hide the truth from people we care about because we think it would shield them from pain, but more often than not, we inflict greater pain upon them in the end.

I have lied about many things, and I’ve been lied to about many things as well.

Perhaps it’s through so much lying that I’ve finally started to tell the truth more often.

It’s so much easier to tell the truth, because the truth will never change, whereas when you tell one lie, you have to tell another lie to cover up the lie you told before and the vicious cycle never ends.

The saddest thing is when a person lies so much, he just doesn’t know what’s real or not anymore.

I would rather be told the truth, even though it may not be what I want to hear, but hey – reality is never sugar-coated.

Admitting the truth is part of realizing your mistake.

Mistakes are inevitable, but how many of us actually learn from them? If we never actually suffer the consequences, how would we ever realize what we’ve done wrong?

Of course, after talking about how people lie too much etc etc, I am not saying that I always tell the truth.

I do lie, sometimes, but I try to avoid it as much as possible.

Everyone is a hypocrite deep down inside – some just don’t realize it, and some just don’t feel bad about it.
