We are always told that "honesty is the best policy." We are told that it is bad to lie. However, we are also sometimes told not to be "too honest." People often call it "brutal" honesty. Sometimes the truth can be hard to hear.
However, there are some good things about it. It can be nice to have loved ones who you can be honest with. They can see things you can't. They can tell you things about yourself or your situation that you hadn't talked about for. Hearing the truth can help you change and grow as a person. It can lead to possibilities that you never thought of.
Here are some more benefits to being honest:
1. People know who you are.
When you are always honest, then you are not hiding who you really are. People believe you when you are always honest.
2. It can take some courage.
Speaking your mind in every situation takes some courage. People who know that you are honest may also see you as brave. We should never be afraid to speak our minds.
3. It can foster and strengthen connections.
Being honest will attract other honest people. A strong friendship or relationship is built on being honest with one another. You will draw the attention of other honest people.
