Yes.  As long as honesty is delivered with tact and class which is a skill that I'm still working on.

yes, with tact. being honest isn't an excuse to criticize or hurt people; conversely, it's reality isn't an excuse to justify a lie. a person should have the common sense to know when honesty is the best and when a quiet tongue is the best.

I do. Lies normally come out in the end and it's even worse then if you told the truth from the beginning

I also want to add that lying is a huge thing to me. I feel like if you lie about one thing then you'll lie about everything and I will question everything you say.

Honestly all depend on the certain situation. This is my philosphy in life I would not lie to you but I am not going to tell you everything that is on my mind.
