Honesty…The best policy?
How much honesty can a person handle? I constantly hear people asking for the truth and usually "they can't handle the truth". I'm specifically talking honesty in relationships…not solely of the romantic kind. I'm talking even in your everyday interaction, is honesty really all its cracked up to be?
Friendships- how honest are you? I'm not talking telling your friend that honestly that outfit is ugly. I'm talking about the type that matters. How many brave ones could really tell their friends they smell or that she's one penis away from being a porn star. If you have, let me know how that worked out for you.
Romantic – do you really want to know how many people he/she has slept with? If he/she was honest could you handle it? Whose answered this question honestly? And when you say no that's not a lot it won't change how I think about you, is that being honest? If honesty is what we're working with guys, say " well that number’s kinda high your almost a floozy but let's see what can work". I kid, I kid that's waay too honest to ever go down well.
Do you really want to know that all this time he/she knew you weren't the one? Or would you prefer to think that you grew apart?
Professional – when has being honest about the boss EVER helped? Never worked for me.
The fact is humans are fragile. Honesty is one bad mama jamma. In a society where circuitous answers and behaviour are the call of the day.. No one’s direct any more. I won't lie honesty looks good on paper but gets pretty dangerous in the execution.
