Some people think that honesty is the best way of behavior in any circumstances whereas others think that it should depend on situation.

soch 001 002

I think that honesty should be differentiated. First of all, there are circumstances when honesty might cause bad consequences. For example, a murderer is chasing a victim and asks you, “where is she?”. If you are honest and say the truth the person will be killed. Second, if a person is always honest he can sound quite rude. He sees something wrong with another person and says it to him openly, “you smell today!”

At the same time there are people who say that a person has to be always honest. He has to tell always the truth. Only in this case people will respect him.

soch 001 004

In my opinion these people have a point. Nobody respects liars. Nevertheless, one should be honest with himself, first. So honesty should first of all be directed at oneself. In this case a person will never confuse honesty with rudeness and stupidity.

In conclusion, I'd like to say that we have to define honesty correctly. One has to understand what honesty really is. Only after this honesty becomes the best policy ever.
