Importance of Honesty

This was a request that I received and I feel that this is a great topic to discuss with my fellow bloggers and readers. Honesty is a very important personal feature that various people do not comprehend.  Honesty can effect all types of relationships you have with people.  Whether it be friendships, family relationships, co-worker relationships and love relationships.  In some people's opinions you do not have to be honest about everything.  Especially, if they feel that certain things shouldn't have to be mentioned because it might upset another.  Not always the right approach.  I have my own share of opinions of honesty that others might not agree with and I am going to share them with you all.  I feel that you should be honest about all things. Think of it this way, all things come to light eventually.  Whatever lie you may say will soon enough come out.  Whether it be tomorrow, in a few weeks, months or maybe year.  It really doesn't matter when, but it does come out.  I also believe that whenever you truly care for a person you should not want to lie to them and also keep certain things from them.  Especially if they are things that should be spoken about with the person you care about.  It is not fair to them as a person.  With any type of close relationship you want to be up front about all things that way you can avoid any future confrontations.  Also, if ever faced with a situation where someone has caught you in a lie, please do not continue the lie.  It makes everything awkward and it makes the situation worse than what it really would have been.  Put it this way; when you're honest with someone you are being true to yourself as well.  Don't hide who you are as a person and the things you have done.  What's done is done and you can not change that.  We aren't perfect as humans and we all have lied at some point in our lives and honestly that's normal.  However, not being honest to someone you care for the most isn't always the right thing to do.  Try to be more honest with them and yourself.
