Honest People

I remember the song "honesty is such a lonely word, everyone is so untrue". Everytime I think about it, I realized that here on this world no one is honest. I remembered the movie that I have watched, but I forgot its title. The guy keeps telling a lie to his girlfriend. He has lots of girlfriends and then, one of his girlfriend decides to teach him a lesson. After the guy learns his lesson, he become honest to his girlfriend. The only problem is he tells his girlfriend that he has lots of girlfriends and he introduces all of his girlfriends to his another girlfriend. He changes his way and become honest to his all of his girlfriends. Ha ha ha ha --- I just laughed at that movie. There are many reasons why some people choose not to be honest because they knew that if they would be honest, they might lead them to broken relationship in both parties. I was thinking, Is it really better to be honest than to lie someone? Some people are honest, but they end up hurting each other and the result is a broken relationship.

I still believe that honesty is the best policy we can follow in our lives. It shows our self worth, our pride and the moral of our character. there is no shame in honesty. There is only shame in being something that you are not.

I agree there is absolutely nothing wrong with being honest, after all it is the best policy. This is what's wrong with the world today, no one is being honest. If you ask a question, what is wrong with simply responding honestly? When I ask a question I don't want anyone to lie to me because they have an hidden agenda, thats being dishonest for the sake of hurting someone to build yourself up. This is what I call hurting people for no reason and it is wrong to do to anyone. If you don't have love in your heart then honesty doesn't come easy.

i think the movie you are referring to is Alfie. It was a move of Jude Law. the truth is always preferred than a lie but it is not easy to tell the truth all the time. especially if you have a super jealous partner

Dear friend, I had not watched this movie, but I feel at present there is no individual who is purely honest. But being honest is best one to be faithful to oneself. But at times being honest is taken into advantages by those who are responsible to protect those honesty. Anyhow it is very difficult to be honest in present day. But the people who are honest are most liked and given dignity.

Well I think that most people lie because of fear that they might not get what they want and they end up hurting, more than telling something honestly but either way you will still end up hurting.For me the result doesn't matter anymore because it is more on how you handle situations, if your strong enough to face that fear then I'll say your in a right track.

You must have probably heard about this quote that "Honesty is the best policy" Today in this world being honest is the biggest challenge to everyone of us. At times when we tend to be honest by getting the fearful thoughts of different things we tend to lie to the front person. But being honest though it breaks something but there is also an attachment from the other side. When people try and understand that instead of looking at what the person has done if we see his honesty we can surely trust the person. When people say the truth the other person forgetting that the person has told the truth just focuses on what the person has done. Most of us are backed over here. Being Honest is one of the law's of God and keeping in the mind the consequences of getting in certain bad action. If we are self controlled then honesty can probably work for you.

Being honest is the effective way to have a better relationship.. Sometimes and almost of the times a relationship always end up to a broken one, because they are not honest to their partner.. they could not accept the truth that they need to be honest to be have an effective relationship.. But sometimes the word Honest has been abused by many of the persons who are in a relationship. They always vocal to what they see, and what they see to that people is they say it right away, even that thing can hurt a person, and that "honesty" is sometimes related to "carelessness". Sometimes we can lie also lie for a good reasons. To avoid hurting the feelings of the other and to have a better relationship with someone. Just like saying to a friend that she is beautiful even she's not. Sometimes it can lead us to lie and lie and lie again.. It sometimes make it as a habit, and we can't control it and the time will come that all that lies will be reveal.. We can't blame people to lie, they have their own reasons behind that. And they are the only one who knows that, also God, who knows everything we do and anything we think. How can we help them? How can we make them change? We can't really help them directly as we think of talking to them and explaining to them the whole day how important to be Honest. All we can do is to make them realize by our own way of showing to them that we live our life with honest acts. We show to them that we are honest and they will realize the it is really nice to be an honest person.

Honest is what I always do. well, it is really depend on situation too... if something that I MUST LIE then I HAVE to do it... but I dont do that often. I am mostly tell the truth and that make ppl like about me. it is hard to stay on top of those Lie all the time... it is just something to make u get away from something that you can't face it, and that is the reason you lie

I can understand what you are getting at.The case you are highlighting might be a bit extreme.But at certain moments we shall prefer someone who is telling us the truth.If everyone we met were telling lies and white lies we can never get the correct and true picture.If a person is honest and morally upright he will never in the first place end up doing those acts which he has to cover up through lies.

honesty is a necessity in every relationship especially for those who are in a relationship. the truth will set you free and no matter how hard it is to tell the truth for fear of hurting someone or just simply covering for something. sincerity, trust and love connotes with such gesture.
