Honestly speaking…


Let us be frank.

Let us be even brutally frank.

Is it possible to be honest 100%, throughout your life?

Are we honest with ourselves, or with our friends?

Are we honest in our business or dealings?

Are we honest with our colleagues?

Are we honest with our spouses and children?

Can you count the number of times, you lied so far?

We lie to our children when they are, say between 2 to 7 yrs that storks bring children, the Tooth fairy or Father Christmas, or telling a person on death bed not to worry and that he/she going to live longer etc. (of course with good intention to encourage the person)…just a few examples.

we continue to lie every day to others, depending upon the situations and circumstances.

This is a kind of ‘Escapism’ or ‘Giving Excuses’

Many a time we lie because we don’t want to be embarrassed. Or embarrassing.

You may also lie so as not to hurt others or may lie to get things done.

What about ‘plagiarism’?

So lying is part and parcel of our lives and you can’t separate the two.

Honesty hence not necessarily be the best policy, in certain situations.

Strangely everyone of us expect others to be honest.

Is this not funny?

What is your take?

Please share your views.

“No such thing as a man willing to be honest that would be like a blind man willing to see”

F.Scott Fitzgerald
