This is the most amazing place ….
I don't know why "being honest" always is about faults. About-face! Look on the other side. How many people are "honest" about the good things they see in other people? In fact if others heard us tell them about the good attributes, abilities, character traits, we see in them – it would generally be a very embarassing situation also! Or at least we fear it would be. So we remain "silent" and therefore "less than honest" – and mostly people don't get to hear in words how admirable we may find them, or what admirable aspects, at any rate.
But we seem to automatically link "being honest" with dealing with faults.
I'm not sure this even rates 2 cents …
