Moral Values Essay

In fact, lying is more than not telling the truth because truth is often relative by time, place and perspectives; lying is purposefully changing what one believes the truth to be. Cheating is always about breaking an implied or explicit promise, while stealing is the actual act of taking another’s property. I highly value honesty because it improves my relationship with others and allows me to grow as a person. In most cases, other people appreciate being told the truth because even though the truth may be unpleasant, it enables them to find the best solution for the situation.

However, as they discovered my low grades at the end of the semester, they were really concerned I could not catch up with my friends. Eventually, I was sent for…
