Be honest with me
Have you ever heard this phrase? Have you ever said it yourself?
It seems to me that people are more dishonest than honest in their dealings with each other when it appears something like a relationship or a friendship is at stake. But that in itself should sound warning bells. What sound relationship was built on lies?
What’s that you say? Most of them?
The phrase “What you don’t know won’t hurt you,” comes to mind as the excuses to justify deception are played out.
Let me think what I mean when I’ve said this phrase to people. I mean I want their opinion, but I still want them to be gentle in the delivery of their words, and maybe, just maybe, I want them to withhold any portion of the truth that may really hurt me.
So, if I’m honest with myself, I don’t really want people to be honest with me when I say, “Be honest with me?” Do I?
