Virtue of the Fortnight: Honesty

How Do You Practice Honesty?

When you are honest, you don’t try to fool yourself or others. You say what you mean and mean what you say. You only make promises you can keep. Be trustworthy in all your dealings, fefusing to lie or cheat. Admit your mistakes and fix them. Be honest with yourself and you will be honest with others. You don’t need to make things up to look good – you’re already good – honest!


I am honest. I can be trusted to keep my word. I admit my mistakes. I tell the truth, kindly and tactfully. I have no need to impress others. I accept myself as I am.
