Almost all of us heard the story “Here Comes the Wolf” when we were little kids. What we can learn from the story is that we must be honest. However, there’re lots of phenomena of dishonesty nowadays.
Being dishonest does great harm not only to other people but also to yourself. Take the case of fake milk powder for example. After drinking this kind of milk, the babies had big heads while their legs and arms were still thin, which badly affected their health. To our great relief, the producers got accused and punished for all the serious consequences in the end.
Having the reputation of being honest and reliable will make other people trust you, which will provide you many benefits and give you opportunities that others may not get. Being honest, you will find it easier to cooperate with others and people will be friendly to you and support you. In a sense, if life is a longjourney, honesty will be the backpack that should be taken along all the way.
Let’s pick up our “backpack” —honesty, and start the wonderful journey!
Honesty means always telling the truth and never cheating. Honesty is a kind of courage and responsibility, an invisible power and wealth. Honesty wins trust, respect and friendship. So it pays to be honest.
Honesty is a good virtue. If you are honest all the time, you'll be trusted and respected by others. I have learned a lot fro m my experience of dishonesty.
When I was in Senior One, I was so eager to get a high score that I cheated in the exam. Although nobody discovered it, I had no sense of success at all. Instead, I felt guilty and it bothered me for a long time. What was worse, I was afraid that my friends would know about it and trust me no longer. So from then on, I have been determined never to be dishonest. Otherwise I will be looked down upon and lose all my friends.
As you can see from my experience, if you are honest, you can say and do what you l ike without fear. In conclusion, to be honest will ensure you a happy life.
