Honesty is almost never the best policy, other than being honest with ones self, or when asked by your boss why petty cash is short $50. I might have that last one backwards.
The problem with always being honest is other people. Most people don’t want to hear the truth, or ask question to which they never intended a truthful response. The measure of telling the truth should be how much that truth will help the recipient and your intentions for being the truth crier. There is no deep knowledge to the fact that the truth hurts. If you are not willing to take responsibility for the wounds inflicted then leave the truth someone that will.
I will now stop down from my soap box and tell you true that this post sucks.
