Honesty and FriendshipPaper Rating: Word Count: 857 Approx Pages: 3
Since childhood, we have been taught the importance of honesty and why we should be honest. Almost all adults will tell us that lying is wrong. Therefore, we do try our best to be honest with our parents, teachers, friends and almost everybody with whom we meet.

An interesting question comes to my mind, "Is it better to keep a friend by not speaking your mind or risk losing a friend by being honest?" I believe that honesty is always the best policy while facing our friends and ourselves.

For example, in a third primary relationship, I believe that honesty is my pride, and I am proud of being myself. If there is a conflict between friendships and honesty, I will choose honesty without hesitation even though there is a risk of losing my friends.
