Honesty is the best policy - but do we really follow it?Honesty means when you are completely true to yourself and to everyone around you. There is complete truthfulness in you. Honesty makes a person real in words and in his image. It makes your reputation good. Honesty follows a very famous saying "Honesty is the best policy" - which means being honest is the best part one can do. It will lead to good and positive outcomes. Being honest is the best thing a human can possess in himself and it is really not an easy task to be.
At earlier times, people used to be like that, they used to have a simple way of living with satisfactory amount of income to survive. Honesty was the key to happiness that time. People used to love their job and their families equally and will never lie to their parents, even if they would undergo hard times, they remained true to their loved ones.
In today's time, honesty has slowly gone missing. We are trying to live a luxurious lifestyle inspite of not having enough money. We are lying to ourselves. The first form of dis-honesty comes here.
Next, at our workplaces, we go , we are doing our work, but if something is missed our not correct. We try to fix that out and sometimes even give a clear lie to the customer, understanding that the mistake is at our part. Trying to create a fake image in front of others- an image of show-off. This is another form of dishonesty. So, we are breaking our own policy.
Somebody wants to meet up, our closed one, but we are enjoying doing something else and we do not want to go, we make up another lie , now again we broke our own policy. Inpsite of knowing that we had time, it is just our mood that did not allow and so we lied to our friends , or relatives.
This way, the form of dishonesty continues, and we slowly and steadily keep breaking the policy of honesty. This is actually the way people are behaving these days. The title has just remained a said quote now and its significance does not play a bigger role.
We need to be more focused to make honesty a key to our happiness and understand the value of it. It makes a person trust able and valuable.
