Hijacked again, lol. . . Since there are some issues with trust right now, I thought this would be nice :)

Why do you value honesty and integrity in those around you?

I personally value honesty and integrity in others because I love myself enough to surround myself with these values in many forms. I have a wide variety of friends from many cultures & walks of life that have these two important cornerstones for friendship in common, and therefore I tend to have zero tolerance for those that don't. . . Does not mean that I feel I can take away someone's rights to think and be themselves, it just means that I choose not to partake in such an unhealthy lifestyle.

Thanks Bro for posting this great question.

Honesty and integrity are defined as qualities that allow an individual to do the right thing as often and as much as possible, and when they have done the wrong thing admit to what they have done.

I was brought up with the belief that it is best to be honest and  to admit when you make a mistake. Over the years I have found being around people that are not honest has brought me great distress and I have learned to let go of these people and  continue to believe that there are good people in the world who adhere to the same values I do which include honesty and integrity.

"To be honest is to be real, genuine, authentic, and bona fide. To be dishonest is to be partly feigned, forged, fake, or fictitious. Honesty expresses both self-respect and respect for others. Dishonesty fully respects neither oneself nor others. Honesty imbues lives with openness, reliability, and candor; it expresses a disposition to live in the light. Dishonesty seeks shade, cover, or concealment. It is a disposition to live partly in the dark."

Honesty, integrity, trust and love are what make a relationship.  If you don't have that then what do you have really.  I was raised to treat others with honesty and respect and love and I expect that in return.  Simple as that.  Lying to me is the worst that someone can do to me.

I agree with what has been said so far. Honesty, trust, and love are the things that allow us to form real relationships with people. Whether that be online or in person, it's important to be able to trust the ones you turn to. I as well was raised to do the best I can in being honest, trusting, and loving as much as possible. Of course we all have moments where we don't do our best, but like you said, when you fail at these things, to bring it out and admit your fault ensures to others that you are trustable. I tend to trust people too easily, and have been hurt by people at work, as well as other people who end up not really being friends. I'm learning to not trust people until they prove that they are trustworthy. It's a hard lesson to learn, and I'm learning more and more as time goes on.

Honesty and integrity are the foundation of any relationship. If there isn't a strong foundation, how can you build on that relationship?

Pretty much I said everything I had to say about this in the Trust thread. Everyone should have honesty and integrity....no matter who you are.
