Honesty is necessary in love – Let Candor Keep your Love Life Alive
Love has no existence without truth. This is because ‘truth’ in a relationship keeps faith alive and love blossoms. I did not realize this before this incident occurred in my life.
This is when I realized that love is all about being true to the person you are sharing the relationship with. Truth may hurt in the beginning but it creates a strong bond between two peoples.
I share a great relationship with my brother. We are all the same. We share the same habits, same hobbies, and the same food. We loved each other very much. However, there was an incident that took me far away from my brother both physically and emotionally. I chose some wrong friends. This made me drug addict. I started hiding this from my brother. I started spending less time with him and started making excuses to stay away from him. This creates a big rift in our relationship.
This was when I realized that I had it enough. I decided to talk to my brother. I broke down and told my brother that I have become a victim of drug abuse. This was when my brother understood me and decided to help me. He supported me emotionally and helped me to find a rehab centre for myself. I got a new life, developed a new hobby and now me and my brother are best friends.
Here are some tips I would like to share with you:
a) The best policy:
Remember that honesty is the best policy. You need to be honest with your partner no matter what. Try to open your heart out. Believe me it works and works for better.
b) Put yourself in the other person’s shoes:
You need to know how the other person reacts or feels when you hide something or be dishonest. This will let you be honest with the person you are sharing the relationship with. The key is to be honest with yourself. You need to be true to yourself in order to maintain honesty with your partner.
