Can You Not Lie?

What is honesty?
Honesty is telling the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.

Society’s definition of honesty is to tell “the partial truth, and only part of the truth as it serves your personal interests, and on the condition that no one is made to feel uncomfortable.”

It’s not about the big lies, but more about all the innocent, everyday white lies that you tell other people often.

Why do you lie?
We were taught that it’s perfectly acceptable to withhold our truth if we think it will hurt someone’s feelings, or cause a conflict, or make someone uncomfortable, or make us look bad.

"EVERY INDIVIDUAL IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR OWN EMOTIONS!"

People will give different emotion reactions for the same truth. When you truly understand this important truth, you’ll feel much more freedom to say what you think and feel.

Most times, it’s your own lack of trust in yourself to be able to deal with the other’s reactions that blocks your honesty. “How will I feel if this person reacts badly” you ask yourself. “I might feel guilty, so I’ll tell a little lie.”

The prices of lying
Let's face it, people will get angry and hurt sometimes in reaction to your honesty. But the alternative of living a life filled with lies is not much of an alternative. Lying also causes stress and anxiety.

Most of us don’t speak the truth for fear of the consequences. I decide to take my risk and accept all the consequences that may happen. For better relationship and a more satisfying life, I’m ready to always tell the whole truth, in polite way, of course.

Are you ready to tell the whole truth?

Lying cannot be avoided especially if you know that when you tell a lie you will hurt someone's feeling. White lies can be acceptable if it would create good and not break or ruin a relationship.
