Conditions of Use
I think honesty is telling the truth even when there is an “easy lie.” The dictionary says:
1.The quality or fact of being honest; uprightness and fairness.
2.Truthfulness, sincerity, or frankness.
3.Freedom from deceit or fraud.
Those are all really good definitions, and they all kind of said the same thing. When I said easy lie earlier, I meant a lie that no one would notice for a long time and if you were caught, you could explain easily. I chose honesty because I feel that everyone (me, you, you’re family, the government) tells lies one way or another. If lying is as big as most people think it is, where did the quote “Sometimes it is better to tell a small lie, rather than the truth.” come from? I agree with that fully, and I bet that most of you do to. Here’s the problem, if you tell a small lie and the person you did it to finds out, they could get really mad. There is a big difference between a small lie, or a “nice lie” and a full-on rotten, mean lie, or an “easy lie.” The first two are to help someone, and the last two are just mean. Everyone tells lies, even if you try your hardest not to. I wonder if some people consider the “helping lies” are bad. I sure don’t. Do you? I think that .it is better to keep quiet and as my mom says, don’t say anything at all, if you can’t think of something nice to say.
I think everyone needs to work on honesty, but no one will perfect it. I think it’s too hard for a human to perfect something this big. For example, sometimes honesty is owning up to your mistakes, sometimes it’s not telling lies, sometimes it’s telling someone that you were planning to do something to them, and sometimes it’s just telling someone you’re going to do something. I need to work on it more than some people, and so do you. I think that kids my age should really try as hard as they can to not lie, but remember, no one’s perfect so you might still lie. I think that even adults should try hard too. The economy needs to work on it too. They should tell the consumer all the ingredients in their product so you won’t have an allergic reaction or something. They should tell what risks there are to taking a certain medicine. Those are just a couple of examples. Those are my thoughts on honesty, what are yours?
