Franklin believed the best way to live a life of happiness was to live a genuine, honest life. And I would agree. Being truthful creates less stress in your life than telling lies. After all, liars must always remember their lies and live with the consequences if caught. Sincere people are genuine. They do not have to worry about being found out. And integrity holds you to your honesty and sincerity even when the stakes are high. Before blaming the world for your unhappiness, think about your character and how you treat other people. Do the words truth, sincerity, and integrity come to mind? If not, you have some work to do.
