Despite all its middle-aged longing, Young and Beautiful remains a refreshing tonic to relentless maturity.

My sister my brother and I had a little reunion to see what was the best thing to do in this case, my mother was very fragile, she was recuperating from a big surgery and on top of all was suffering from a little depression at that time. It was a hard thing to do not only because we had to hide our emotions, I remember I wanted to cry so bad, and every time I will get close to my mother I would have to run and hide in the bathroom to cry and then put lots of make up so she would not noticed my tears.
I remember saying to my self, how could I deliver such a painful news to her?? I saw her little face so sad, as if she knew deep inside but at the same time I saw hopes in her eyes. So we decided not to tell her until two weeks later when we talked to her doctor and her doctor advised us to tell her the truth.
Until this day I think we did the right thing at that time. The second brother they had told us there was no hope they told us he only had days to live, we did not tell my brother or my mother that as well, because we thought it was enough pain the pain we were going through, we did not them to go through that pain as well. So Frank what do you thing about our situation? Thanks for this posting, as always very appreciative to Learn from you. They were honorable and come from a loving heart. There is a slippery slope when it comes to honesty —— Some people start out with good intentions and cross the line.
What I find within this community is that truth is perceived in very different ways which can suggest that a person has lied. Those opinions seem to come from the spirit of the person. How do we recognize what is in ourselves can be so different in other without calling it out as being dishonest? I did find this passage which I found interesting. Since they are expected to tell the truth at all times, they reject the idea that there are two standards of truth—one for everyday concerns and one for the courtroom. The prick of conscience that comes with the violation of truth is a reminder that integrity is the first principle of life,.
Truth-telling simplifies life — Lying burdens and complicates life. A well written blog Frank!.. I completely believe that honesty should be a way of life. That is basis of each relationship. I think spreading rumour is also dishonesty. People with character listen carefully to their conscience. The truth matters to them. Thank you for a great article, Frank. Truth is so often overlooked, but is the single most important pillar in Life, Love … and business! Love from South Africa. This is one of the most important concepts for all humans.
Love without truth is a volatile thing. I am too. Actually, I mentioned you in this post because one of your tweets inspired a paragraph on this very post! And this is the invitation for us all. Why are people so afraid to be honest with one another? Or why is honesty good for other people to do and live up to but not always the leaders who expect it? This is our mission and challenge in the world today. To stop making a mockery of the most important and foundation principle that is the building block of trust in our relationships.
How do they respect themselves the next day? I am having a moral dilemma. In reading about lying, dishonesty, truth, and honesty… is it not possible to make an honest mistake when asked a question?
If someone asks me a question, and I provide the wrong answer but truly believe it is the correct one , am I lying? What if, when the correct answer is pointed out, I admit I made a mistake? I have gotten into serious disagreement with my spouse about this — she says I lied to her; I said I made a mistake, and admitted it as soon as the true facts became apparent.
They say if you have chemistry you only need one other thing: Timing. Keeping our eyes on Him lets us walk on water!!! That's right, much of the language spoken by William Shakespeare known as Elizabethan English is still in use today, and is distinct from Middle English the language of Geoffrey Chaucer , who wrote The Canterbury Tales and Early English as found in Beowulf. Every day I think I am doomed to wander this earth by myself. All those things. I agree with you on the men not noticing me at all comment.
How can anyone hold anyone else to be perfect? This is a great article. Never thought about all the facets of lying. Really helpful in what I am dealing with in my life at this point.
Thank you!! Thanks Lincoln. One of the reasons why I broke out several forms of dishonesty is to discourage folks from claiming that some lies are less bad than others. Remember, big or small … a lie is a lie. I just stumbled across your article and it was a good read. I was just wondering though, what you thought about lying about something for the sole intention of not to cause trouble?
For example, if my mum and dad had split up, and mum was always talking about dad in a hostile way. Then, one day dad comes along and asks me if mum has been saying anything degrading about him. Even though I, with all my soul, hate when people lie, I feel, if it has to be done, this is the only slightly acceptable way to do it. What are your thoughts? Thanks for your time.
I completely understand your dilemma. While this may not answer their question directly, it may also prevent this situation from happening again. I hope that answered your question. So, to test your conviction for personal integrity I have a basic question. Who did you support in the primaries, Clinton or Sanders? With regard to the election, I promised myself several things when I started this blog.
First, I want to be positive rather than negative. I really enjoyed this brilliant thought provoking blog. Thank you for sharing your wisdom, thoughts and comments. Great point, Rose. Failing to disclose something, in whole or in part, is dishonest. Hi Frank. It stretches out to 60yrs my age. I will try to shorten it down somewhat.
We imigrated from the Uk to Australia in ,Mum Dad and my 3 brothers and sister. Well if you want to sacrifice foundation,stability,education,etc etc,go for it. About a year ago i made a promise to myself to be brutaly honest,and be the same with others.
I can say with all honesty that i feel my life has changed for the better and heading in the right direction. Thanks for listening. Thanks for sharing. Thanks for taking the time to write. Can we have honesty without following the rules. Does honesty have any relation with compliance with rules. Honesty is the aspect of moral character that deals with respect for and adherence to the truth. On the other hand, integrity is doing the right thing —— which includes adherence to the rules and laws of society.
Thanks for your thoughts. Please send me a brief email highlighting what you have in mind. I can be reached at frank franksonnenbergonline. I teach a class in Ethics and found unethical practices often run parallel with lying. We all know that people lie, but why? Based in rules and laws, we have a complete court system to discover whether someone charged with breaking these laws have lied or not. Faith and values based, starting with how we were programed as a child by our parents. Moral behavior and parental messages are an integral part of who we are today.
We unconsciously adapt these imprinted behaviors as our choice. Ego and or entitlement based interpretation of reality and truth. When lying, contextual reframing to justify it is used. After awhile, they actually feel they have different standards than the minions not to mention how Media plays to their ego.
We may have a dominant behavior; nevertheless, all three reside within us. It seems that Truth is on trial and lying becomes the norm. Morally we know lying is wrong. Thanks for sharing your thoughts and for advancing the conversation. I thoroughly enjoyed your perspective. I encourage everyone to read it. My study is going deeper on honesty with your article. Somya, india, rajasthan. As I said, it is dishonest to intentionally withhold information to deceive someone. If people care about their credibility and reputation, desire the respect of friends and family, or want to be taken seriously in life…trust matters.
The truth is, trust takes a long time to develop, but can be lost in the blink of an eye. I found this outline a great tool for the young men we are working with. It has been out objective to speak plainly through all aspects of our lives. You are doing your young men a tremendous favor by talking about the importance of honesty. It will benefit them for their entire life.
I love your posts…honesty has always been very central to me throughout my life. I have found that not everyone appreciates it though particularly if they are not being honest with themselves! Being authentic is a way of life and defines me. I recently found myself in a situation where a number of people around had various secrets that they confided to me.
At first that was fine, I was happy that people trusted me enough to confide their secrets to me. But over time, as a result of the various secrets among these people, relationships became more and more complicated, and more and more difficult and trust among the group deteriorated more and more. Eventually, I got to the point where I could not take it anymore and I started refusing to keep anymore confidences and I started doing what I could to untangle the web of secrets where I could do so without betraying confidences.
I now am very reluctant to become the keeper of confidences. I have now adopted the belief that the problem is not that people expect me to keep their secrets but that they have secrets to keep in the first place. If your life is full of secrets, you have to ask yourself if you are truly living life properly. People who live their lives with honesty and integrity should have very few secrets. I recognize that this is cannot be an absolute rule. There are some secrets that people do need to keep. None-the-less, someone whose life is full of secrets is not someone I necessarily want in my life.
Nor do I want to be the kind of person who feels the need to keep a lot of secrets. Honesty and Integrity have to be taught at home.

Mental illness is becoming an epidemic in our society and no one is talking about it. I have spent too Spoken: A Work of Beautiful Sadness and Honest Pain.
There is no grand recognition for those choosing to live a life of integrity other than for the individual themselves. As such, our consolation is a lonely but worthy venture. Peace of mind about who you are is a great one…. I understand how you, like so many others, feel that too many people lack honesty and integrity today. Living with honor is its own reward. This is glaringly obvious in the movies when a villain stabs others in the back, but when someone is disloyal to them, the villain is vengeful.
The very fabric of society would disintegrate if honesty was not the moral norm, and this is certainly true in the business setting. Ferrell enlightens that some research supports the suspicion that many businesspeople do in fact live with two conflicting sets of rules—one for business and one for their lives outside of work This notion is alarming, and suggests that people are more apt to want to bend the rules to make a buck in the business setting, but they would not partake in the same behavior in their personal life.
Honesty is what keeps the world spinning—not deception or deceit, and it is refreshing to read a blog that champions honesty! Integrity in the marketplace appears to be sinking farther and farther down the drain, as evidenced by the many scandals that have come to light in the past two decades. However, there are many companies who pledge to always do the right thing, no matter the consequences, and it is these companies and businesspeople who are shining stars in an increasingly unsettled world.
Lying may one day become the norm, and for some it already is, but I pray that this does not continue—and we must each do our part to ensure that honesty reigns supreme, no matter the setting! I am being very dishonest, but I would not say that I am an evil or bad person or that I lie because of conscious intentions. I just came from a very religious and socially poor background while being gay and an immigrant from Morocco to the Netherlands.
I had difficulties being with other people and started lying about myself at a very young age. I started lying about my family, my sexuality of course and also really disliked my name Ahmed so took on different names which made it even worse. Now I am this point where I constantly isolate myself from everyone family and colleagues and always tend to lie. Why I choose to say as witch or wizard is because of my spiritual attainment that I think I have.
I transcended religion and do know that there is so much more to life. The most important person to be honest with is yourself. Be proud of who you are and what you represent. You have to live with yourself for the rest of your life. Your email address will not be published. Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. Here are some common forms of dishonesty that masquerade as acceptable behavior: Misrepresentation.
There are several things you can do to demonstrate honesty: Think before you speak. Say what you mean and mean what you say. Bend over backward to communicate in an open and honest fashion. Simplify your statements so that everyone clearly understands your message. Tell it like it is, rather than sugarcoating it. Present both sides of each issue to engender objectivity. If you have a personal bias or a conflict of interest, make it known. Tell people the rationale behind your decisions so that your intent is understood.
If something is misinterpreted, quickly correct the record. Thank them for their honesty and treat the information provided as a gift. Willingly accept responsibility by admitting a mistake or an error in judgment — in a timely fashion. Hold people accountable when their words do not match their actions. Never compromise your integrity and reputation by associating yourself with people whose standards of integrity you mistrust.
