Virtually everyone lies. On average we lie once or twice a day. Sometimes we lie just to boast our story or to fill in memory gaps. Sometimes our memory lies for us. Sometimes we lie because it's not our truth to tell. Sometimes we lie because it's none of your damn business. 


Being an honest person is not just about whether or not you lie. Honest people lie. It's mostly about doing the best you can to do the right thing. 


Studies show that people are mostly honest; but liars will lie often. They lie for no reason at all and for any reason at all. People lie out of fear, insecurities, spitefulness, dependency, and a whole host of other negative emotions. 


Honesty is mostly about positivity, authenticity and transparency.


Being an honest person is about having good character. It's about having the strength to force yourself to do what you know is right for everyone effected by your decision and having the courage to voluntarily right your wrong decisions. 

The good news is there is a reward. Honesty has lots of benefits like stronger, longer lasting relationships, better health and an overall happier more fulfilling life.

On the other hand, compulsive lying causes continuous stress which leads to increased blood pressure and heart rate. Compulsive lying has also been linked to depression, anxiety, autoimmune diseases, and substance abuse.
