Is Honesty Really the Best Policy?

Tuesday, August 28, 2007
In relationships and almost everywhere else, they say that honesty is the best policy. Or is it? Coming clean to your partner for whatever wrong you have done, isn’t that just an act of selfishness? Is it really for your partner or for yourself? Coming out into the open and admitting everything – is it really about honesty and upholding the truth? Or is it more of unburdening yourself of the guilt that’s tearing you apart at the expense of piling inevitable wounds, welts and bruises on your partner?

Honest is good but there are things that are better left unsaid, forgotten or buried.

After more than a year, i am writing my comment for this post. :)

Oftentimes, we beg for our partner’s honesty. But come to think of it, do we really wanna know everything? Even those that could hurt us? Maybe not. After all, what we don’t know won’t hurt us. :)
