Does anyone hold to the fact that he or she is in fact honest? All the time? Really?
There was a time, in my childhood, when the concept of total honesty was believable. Parents insisted on it. Teachers demanded it. Newscasters espoused it.
But in today’s world of online dating, the internet, and digital communication, it seems entirely impossible that anyone could still claim to be honest. Entirely truthful.
It’s too easy to hide behind the anonymity of the internet, where one can be a little bit taller, a little bit bustier, a little bit sexier with none ever the wiser. Improved self esteem through deception.
I wonder… does anyone out there still purport to be honest? All the time? Even when no one is looking? Really?
