Honesty requires:

Self-Appraisal – telling yourself the truth.  Many temptations to be dishonest stem from something we do not like about ourselves or our situation.

Self-Control – We do not need to be in every conversation.  We can choose to avoid situations that we know will tempt us to be dishonest.

Self-Respect – Honest people have self-respect and care more about being true to themselves than what others think of them.  They are not willing to compromise their integrity by giving false impressions or by speaking words they know are not true.

Honest hearts produce honest actions!”
