As we go through our life,there are times that we find to say the truth to other people because sometimes too much honesty could hurt you or other people.Honesty also could destroy friendship and relationship with other people. There are lots of situation that we face difficulties of being honest because you do not want to hurt someone and you are just taking care of your relationship with each other.Like when you see something that it is not good to your friends and you say it to them and they usually get offended.There are things also that you should keep but when a person ask about it.It so hard to tell truth because you should keep it. What are your thoughts about it?Have you been in this situation?Share it here.

Because some people cannot are not comfortable with knowing the truth. Some takes criticism too personal as well. If honesty destroys friendship, then the friendship was a fake one. Nowadays people are not open-minded and that what make life complicated.

Not all people can handle the truth. For them, they are quite content living the life that they have now, even if some of it are lies. Some people just don't know how not to hurt their loved ones as well, so they resort to lying. Whether it is a white lie of a big time lie, they're still the same. They're not being honest.

I think that the two main reasons that people are not honest with each other is either that they don't want to hurt the feelings of the other person, or they don't want to have to get themselves into trouble. Both of these reasons can be quite damaging, as it can make us want to keep the truth from other people which is never a good thing. But you have to take a little time to think about the reasons that you're being dishonest, and then think about what might happen if you don't tell the truth. The majority of the time, it is much better to be honest.

I think some people will do things and say things to others even their families and even their loved ones and lie and not be honest when they want to cover up for something... It is not what should happen but i guess it is really hard for others to be honest while it is easy for others to be talking about anything at all. perhaps it all depends on the person. I have been with a dishonest person whom i think now as someone who has lead a life of lie when he was with me... hard to trust a person like that, if you ask me.

As my Grandfather use to say, and it is true, people cannot accept the truth. That's why sometimes we say some small lies, or don't talk at all.
