Honesty

Trust is essential to a healthy relationship. Dishonesty and deception at any level undermines that fragile trust. The expression, “Honesty is the best policy” speaks volumes. Children must learn the value of honesty at home through modeling in order to have healthy relationships as adults. Few things destroy a marriage more than deception and betrayal.

Sometimes, the truth hurts. It is hard to share. Yet, the fallout created by secrets and lies is harder still. Speak the truth in love. Be honest with yourself. Be honest with others in the small things as well as in the big things. Be courageous. Your relationships will thank you in the long run.
