Recently I have been learning a valuable lesson. One which differs from what I thought to be true as a kid. Growing up, I always heard, “honesty is the best policy.” Perhaps this is true when you’re a young, naive, and innocent child. But now, in my early twenties, I’m beginning to realize that there is such a thing as being too honest and I dance this line far too often. For one, not every person can handle honesty. And for two, not everyone deserves it.
This old pre-school assignment was found by a dear friend of mine. Together, the class created their “Classroom Rules” by having each child write one rule. Not only do I find this list incredibly endearing, but I believe it to be an advanced treasure. As you read over these rules, I think you’ll agree that they remain applicable to our current lives. If all adults followed these rules, the world would be a better place. Oh the joy and wisdom of children! 😉
