People during the Covid-19 pandemic are finding themselves having more trouble than ever being honest. Fear of losing one’s job or partner make it hard to see the rewards in being honest. However, it should be looked at with as much objectivity and morality as possible. It’s important to see that long term dishonesty can lead to bigger problems than the ones you’re afraid of in the present moment. Trying your best to be honest will take small steps but is worth the journey.
- While honesty may not always be expedient, you should view it as a cosmic/universal good, and take satisfaction in being honest with others.
- You should also be aware of the practical consequences of dishonesty, which can be very serious.
- Depending on your circumstances, it might be better to try to change all of your behavior, or focus on one area at a time.
