    In response to your question....... I believe honesty is the best policy. Truth and the acknowledgement, verbalising or expression of truth is what we call Authenticity. And when you are authentic, you are FREE.
    You gotta live with your Self at the end of the day.

    In theory, yes. Honesty is the best policy. In practice, it's a lot easier said then done.  This is an age old ponderance, that reaches farther then just in business. It's something that effects every part of you and every person you interact with.... read more

    no it's not. sometimes honesty can cause more problems then lying and it can create confusion, hatred and even a violent outcome.

    Sometimes a little white harmless lie goes a long way. Sad, but true, honesty isn't always the best policy. The slogan in business, "the customer is always right," is an explanation that being honest isn't always the best way to go. If you can't ever say the customer is wrong, even though 99% of the time they're wrong, then in a way you're being dishonest.

    The truth comes out and it is best to maintian healthy relationship sto let the truth come out while you are around ot deal with it.  If not it comes out in your death and hurts the ones you love.

    Typically yes. To cover your lies takes much more effort and you'll have to manage the guilt [if your that type of person];  And if by lying you know it was the wrong thing to do.  However, if the lie will spare a loved ones feelings you'd have to weigh the situation.  And you might consider the backlash if it came back to haunt you later.  I prefer to tell the truth, it's much easier on my soul-spirit.

    I don't believe that honesty is always the best policy. White lies are all right, as long as you don't hurt anyone.
