Sometimes honesty might turn to foolishness, due to wrong place, to be a victim! Well as a proper honest person, you MUST wait to find (or ceate) the appropriate scope to put your honesty.
Sometimes to be dishonest is NOT only for you, but also due to the person to whom you wanted to be honest. For a honest relation it's a team work!
Any way honesty is the best policy, which gives you power, of course you need to be that.
