Truthfulness is a term that is pretty self-explanatory in nature. Google defines the term ‘truthful’ or ‘truthfulness’ to be “telling or expressing the truth; honest.”
Truthfulness is thus synonymous with being honest. Truthfulness is a virtue we must all strive to possess.
Lying and being dishonest might seem advantageous a lot of times in life. However, it is important to remember that truth doesn’t hide forever and will one day surely come to light and become problematic. It is always wise to be truthful and maintain integrity to be respected in society.
Mahatma Gandhi hence said, “There is no God higher than truth.”
