Honesty may not always be the best policy, depending on your definition of "best." Harsh honesty can hurt feelings. Poorly timed honesty can cause more harm than good. However, there is no denying that honesty is not only morally right, it is indeed highly efficient. Personally, I am a huge fan of respectful, caring honesty. Also, I suck at lying.
Just ask my wife who has teased me many times because I forgot the nice little "white lie" about why we're late to a party (when the real reason is probably because we couldn't find two matching socks).
Last weekend we watched Amy Schumer's new Netflix special. In it, Amy talks about how her husband was diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder and how, as part of that, he doesn't lie.
Clip from Amy Schumer's special called Growing.
Now, I can lie but I'm truly a terrible liar. It makes me uncomfortable and I have an awful poker face. This means, much like Amy's husband, I can't lie for my wife.
The moral of my story? Honesty is the way to go. This week's content is all very honest so, buckle up. Here comes some #realtalk.
