Naked truth is always better than a lie

|Yep. Nothing worse than trying to keep track of which lie you told to who. Gives me a headache. And who wants to be stark naked with a headache??? Patrick|

|sometimes, perhaps, it's better to shade things a little. honesty can be rather harsh at times, one has to choose whether the price of naked truth outweighs the possible injury. i think naked truth in terms of one's own self-assessment is essential though. with others, it depends on the emotional investment. sometimes i roll with the old: "rather be serene and happy than right." good poem though, sparks a lot of thought and pondering.|

|It is true that honesty is the best policy but yes being honest has its price and can often be a price that is bound to hurt someone...

|This is a powerful poem, Chessly. I love it! Truth frees the soul from all limitations and gives us inner power so that, for one thing, we can actually connect.

|Good karma. So many lie--even to themselves. Unfortunately, the same people condemn truth. So many have died of neglect or fear, only to be found to be right after their demise.
I embrace truth in all its forms.

|It's exhausting to keep up the deception and lies. Wasted energy. Truth is the best way to always go.
It takes a lot of courage to stick to that.
Much peace, love and light,

|Hi Chessly, Honesty is always the best policy. A white lie is acceptable to avoid hurting someone. What would Jesus do? This writing like all of your writings was excellent.
Peace and Love

|I hate liars and though the truth may hurt at least it's honest.|

|"When exposed some might sneer" <---let them I say
some are so plastic and fake I would expect
nothing less than a sneer...all the while they hide
a saying I always stand with:
"Hurt me with the truth
rather than destroy me with a lie..."
When people lie to us they are stealing trust...
or at least trying too...
Love's Bounty & Blessings
