Honesty And Integrity
One of the best things that you can do for yourself is to lead an honest life. Waking up every single day knowing that you are willing to be sincere and free of deceit and untruthfulness is one of the best feelings; your mental health joyfully cheers you on! Honesty is the best policy to live by in your everyday interactions; that and integrity.
Maintaining strong moral principles and uprightness is something respectable to live by; people will commend you for it. It also just feels splendid to be able to live your life with integrity. Even if life is difficult at times and gives you lemons, it makes a whole world of a difference when you are doing your part by living honestly and full of integrity.
You will also win more in life when you are consistently honest. Some people will like to tell you otherwise, “No man, if you’re honest all the time, people will trample all over you. You gotta know how to play the game!” What game? Lying just to get by or win certain people or situations over? As 2Pac once said, “You don’t have to lie to kick it.”
While lying and providing misinformation will certainly reward you with certain outcomes, in the end, you will just suffer on the inside. This is because lying slowly corrupts you, and the more that you do it, the more immune you become to the feeling of corruption. In other words, you get used to feeling corrupt; it becomes the new you.
Don’t live by this policy. You can win just as much or even more by leading an honest life. People will learn to put their trust in your hands and newer and bigger doors will open up for you. One of the best feelings in the world is waking up in the morning to new opportunities that were opened up to you on the previous day; you feel ecstatic and on top of the world.
Honesty should be your new policy from now on!
