Honesty Leads to Wisdom

Honesty

Being honest isn’t very popular these days. Why is that? Don’t we crave honest opinions of our family, friends and co-workers?

Being honest is never easy, especially when it may hurt another. But I always ask my friends and family to be honest with me. It’s better to know upfront how they feel than to hear whispers behind my back.

I love this quote by Thomas Jefferson. Honesty is the first chapter of wisdom. Being honest doesn’t mean going up to someone with the intention of hurting them. That is bullying. Being honest is telling a friend how you feel about something but always in a positive way.

Today, when you encounter a friend or family member and they ask your opinion, be honest. It’s one step closer to being wise.
