A direct line into yourself and between you and the world.
Honesty is a line with no short cut, a line with no indirect ways. Any attempt to dodge, shorten, walk around, will only make it longer. Honesty is probably one of the biggest gift we have for real self-preservation, prevents us from hiding, from pretending, from neglecting. Forcing us to confront, mature, be brave. To face reality as it is and to accept reality as it is.
A commitment to sincerity is the most important commitment we can make for ourselves and those around us.
