Honesty: Tread Carefully

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.

Childhood Rules that Apply to Us Now

our school rules

 

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! 😉
