Gina: Which is more important honesty or respect?
Tee: They are both important and both are necessary in any relationship. I would say honesty is more important. Why you say? Well you can respect someone and still lie to them but if you are honest then the truth will be revealed which includes whether or not the person respects you. Remember how someone treats you tells you how they feel about you. It goes back to the old saying, “Action speaks louder than words.” People can tell you “I love you” all the time but do they treat you like they love you? Words are just that, words; but actions? Now that tells you the truth. That said, one should not use “being honest” as an excuse to deliberately hurt someone.
