Is it?

Sunday, February 02, 2014

Is honesty really the best policy? Is it better to tell the truth then to hold back so as not to hurt those that you love? Is it better to stay where you are needed and depended on in life, then to go where your heart desires? Is it selfish to want those that say they love you in so many beautiful words, to understand that actions speak louder then words? Is it selfish to want the same as you give to others? Honesty...it hurts and I don't like to hurt others. Yet, I'm told its the best policy...I'm not so sure anymore...Or do they have it all wrong...is honesty the best policy...or is honesty being selfish?

    Sometimes, if I think something isn't very important and would really upset someone, I will not tell that person. It's more important to me to not hurt someone over something trivial. I like to show and tell people that I love them and think highly of them. It is a fine line and I often wonder if I really am doing the right thing, showing people that I love them.

    It sounds like you want to tell someone that they're disappointing you -- is that it? I guess the real question is what do you expect to happen after you tell them your truth.

    I BELIEVE THAT HONESTY IS THE BEST POLICY........ I'VE BEEN TOLD I'M TOO HONEST AT TIMES....... I HAVE FOUND IN STEAD OF HURTING SOMEONE WITH TELLING THEM THE TRUTH... ABOUT CERTAIN THINGS... I TRY TO STILL BE HONEST BUT TO BE SAY THINGS MORE GENTLE AND HOPE NOT TO HURT THEM... AND IF I DO I TRY TO EXPLAIN WHY I'M SAYING WHAT I'M SAYING AND THAT I'M NOT TRYING TO HURT THEIR FEELINGS.

    I have learned... (sharing a thought)

    Honesty is the best policy... does NOT mean going around telling everyone your truth... to me its about... Being Honest with ourselves... and living up to our truths not anothers... we are also suppose to learn when to share our truths... because truth can be as harmful as lies... when speaking truth about another..

    thanks for the food for thought in your blog...

    BLESSings allways... Deby
