Honesty means doing things that are morally right. When one is honest, it means they’re truthful, trustworthy, sincere, loyal and fair.
Honesty is one of the most important attributes in life. It gives you peace of mind where you’re not troubled by the lies you tell. By being honest, people will always trust and respect you. Besides, honesty strengthens bonds and creates more meaningful connections in relationships.
You really want to play with a friend's toy at your house so you slip the toy in your backpack and figure you'll put it back tomorrow.
Honest answer: Taking something that is not yours is morally wrong and dishonest. Asking to borrow the toy is honest.
Respect-The condition of being honoured (esteemed or respected or well regarded) It is the sense of worth or personal value that you attach to someone.
Yes, it is important that first you should respect yourself then you will understand the things why respect is important. Respecting yourself means giving and defining your own worth and value as a human being. Think about this: if you do not respect yourself, it will be more difficult for you to respect anyone else. So it all begins with self-respect.
Respect is one of mankind’s most noble sentiments. The highest levels of respect are always earned – never given. This is true of self-respect as well as respect for others. Before granting the highest level of self-respect or respect for others, make sure the person is worthy of honour.
“Respect for ourselves guides our morals;
respect for others guides our manners.”
