What people have trouble being honest? If I'm around someone that has trouble telling the truth, I would evaluate why I tolerate their friendship. I have to be able to trust someone if I consider someone my friend.

Some people have trouble telling the truth because they were either too blunt when they were being honest and were punished, or they simply don't see the benefit of telling the truth. Either way, it's not my problem for long because I don't tolerate someone lying to me.

Here is my take on it: We now live in a world where honesty is no longer the best policy. Society has went to the extreme to do what you can to get what you want. Which has lead to the break down of our moral fiber. I believe the bible said it best at 1 John 5:19: "The whole world is lying in the power of the "wicked one"
