Honesty If your parents punished you after you told the truth then you would be afraid to be forthcoming and learn to lie. "passed down generation after generation. my entire life. narcissistic mothers destroy their own families.
There is only so far that true honesty gets you. The other part is in the receiver, If they don't trust you, your word, your everything that you believe in, means absolutely nothing. Thank God for my husband BPB SLB
You gotta know where you stand with people, that's why honesty is important. But beware of finding that truth out, cause it can change/damage/destroy your relationship. It'll never be the same, once you know the truth.
