Is honesty still the best policy?Take a moment, think silently and then response to this thread with your utter honesty.
Since our childhood, from our teachers, our parents this is what we learn. But when we come out to this world and face it in front, the truth which comes out is uglier than what you have ever imagined.
Though, I strongly believe in honesty but I get hurt sometime when I see something wrong happening in front of me. Then, I go back, re energize myself and respond to the world the way I know. Yes, it is very difficult to hold back your emotions and say something without hurting anyone but again if the truth "hurts" then dishonesty "destroy" the believe in our society, country or any organization. However, if you talk the truth, those people get more offended those who shout about their "honesty".
There are only two options left; if you really want to live like a good man in this world. Either you become diplomatic or sycophants. Yeah, only these kinds of people have more importance in our society and in any organizations than anyone else.
