Honesty; fairness, straightforwardness, integrity, honor, and faithful are some words that might come to mind.
Everyone lies. It's in a human nature to not hurt our loved ones with cruel intent. Lying is inevitable. We hide the truth thinking it won't surface. That we won't have to face the consequences. We may be ashamed, embarrassed, and disgusted by the underlying truth. Tell the truth anyways. Tell it boldly. Neither you or this person can rest their head easily knowing there is a heavy fog in the room waiting to consume its surroundings.
But what does honesty mean to you? To your relationships? It is the will to tell the truth no matter the circumstances. We hear that honesty will set you free, but will It? What if the honest truth will hurt someone you love? Would you tell them anyways? What if the truth would change the view they have of you? Would you deny them peace of mind?
So I ask, what does honesty mean to you? 💕Shawne
