Adjectives on the Typewriter

αλήθεια

So here's my perplexing question for the next couple days: WHAT IS HONESTY?

I'm convinced that it's more than keeping a promise or even telling the truth when it's required of you. Honesty is making a promise you know you can keep, know you should keep. Giving all the truth instead of holding back bits and pieces with the justification that it wasn't directly asked of you. Banking on a technicality like that can get you in a lot of trouble in court, but its consequences are even more serious in day-to-day life, especially when relationships are at stake.

Because really, truth is much more than the absence of lies.

i think you got honesty figured out for the most part. Just get the rest of the world to see this too and they'll be set.
