On honesty

Though honesty is and should be prized by those who are willing to give and receive it, honesty can tread a fine line between being abrasive and valuable.

Your penchant for honesty is not what will set you apart from the rest. Anyone can identify the truth and share it with others relatively effectively. Rather, your ability to determine the correct situations and contexts in which to be direct and honest is far more special. It requires more attention to detail and more experience speaking to people.
