Sometimes being honest is difficult to do. Sometimes it seems to be the hardest thing to do. Often we lie to keep relationships going smoothly. It may seem to help at the time, but lying only delays the inevitable and may decrease your quality of life along the way.
If you lie to keep friends, you may not be keeping the right friends. It may work for a while, but you’ll always wonder if they still liked you if they knew everything you’ve kept from them. If you tell the truth and build a friendship on honesty, you can be sure that you are investing in meaningful friendships.
