Most of the people I know have a cliched definition of honesty. It is most commonly defined as not to steal, being sincere in your work and in short it is always spoken about in relation to mundane everyday things. What about honesty in emotions? As far as I am concerned, it is the least bothered about kind of honesty and yet the most important of them all.

All of us, in one way or the other are defined by the people we surround ourselves with. Be they friends or enemies, our emotions towards them are the reason behind our actions. In expressing those emotions, how honest should we be?

It really depends on what kind of a person you are. Some people are not brave enough to tell the truth when it comes to emotions. If someone asks you how much they mean to you and this person is someone whom you care about a lot, then there is no room to be dishonest. You tell what you feel and the person goes away feeling happy that they mean so much to you.

Here is where the sin of omission ( a HUGE sin according to me ). Why do you want to hedge around the fact that some people mean more to you in some ways than they do? Granted, it may hurt people knowing that they weren't as important as they thought but it is far better than finding out later. It irritates me to no end when I find that people arent honest in this. I once read somewhere that to hide the truth is akin to lying. How true it is..

You may get away with lying about your emotions one twice thrice, but one day your actions will speak out louder than your words and by the time they do, too much damage will have been done to even try repairing it. Truth may hurt, but it is much much better than having your heart broken at a later stage.

Until next time,
"You will truly hurt someone only when you promise them something that you cannot give"
