A honest life is a life of happiness. You have to be honest to yourself in other to succeed at anything. If you deceive yourself with falsehood, you’ll find it difficult to progress in anything, but when you start to be sincere to yourself you’ll succeed.
“The truth will set you free” ~Jesus Christ~
my friend, ‘truth’ is the right key. At the end you’ll discover that a life of lies is imprisonment/slavery and living a honest life is the only way to freedom and happiness here. If you don’t know this or you can’t accept this, one day; YOU WILL.
