How I found out why Honesty is the best policy
It’s hard to tell the truth sometimes, and even harder when playing a joke on someone. Honesty is The Best Policy. I found out that you need to be honest to everyone; especially to the people you love. Someone could get hurt and you may not be the same with that person.
