Being honest with yourself is the most important lesson that one can learn in life. Facing the guy in the mirror is the hardest thing that we have to do. Without honesty, as Mark Twain says we cannot have a sleepy conscience. One cannot escape from the court of heart no matter how hard one try. The biggest price that we need to pay for lack of honesty is to get haunted by regrets and shame. On the infinite scale, we have a little duration to hang on to the earth, so living in the truest sense is the way to a peaceful demise.
