Honesty is regarded as one of the most important values in many cultural contexts. Nevertheless, truth is difficult to say and difficult to receive: it should be communicated with the right words and the right attitude.
When transparency ends, frauds, hoaxes or reticence are a good example of apparent reliable collaboration that in reality is driven only by selfishness. If you have nothing to hide, why not being transparent?
Do we want to know the truth to learn and take account of it or we want to know in order to punish? Behind the exchange of truth there’s a great deal of acceptance. Most of us don’t say what they think just because they are afraid of the consequences. Only accepting the diversities of others we can know the reality behind the appearances.
