Daily Prompt: Truth or Dare

Daily Prompt: Truth or Dare
by michelle w. on January 3, 2014

Is it possible to be too honest, or is honesty always the best policy?


I believe honesty is the best policy, but not always. There are times when you want to shield someone from hurt, so you lie to them or just don’t tell the full truth. Usually, the person gets hurt anyway when they find out the truth. If other family members are involved in keeping the secret, it can get real messy.
Most all of us have fibbed at some point in our life and we tend to lie to ourselves instead of facing facts. But, I still hold firmly to honesty is the best policy. It is a great character trait.
I tend to take people at face value, and believe them to be a good person. Sometimes, that turns on me, especially if I have told the person things in confidence. I’ve been bitten by that one several times and still let my guard down sometimes.
What would the world be like if everybody was honest? Just some food for thought.

  1. Being honest does not necessarily mean we go around telling everyone what we see as truth. None of us know “the whole truth”. I do not see silence as dishonesty.

    If we were to stop lying, we would be able to trust each other.

    I vote for being honest coupled with wisdom.
