Why Too Much Honesty Ruins Relationships

Dr. Jamie Turndorf (aka Dr. Love) exposes the fallacy behind the old adage: honesty is the best policy, explaining that many people use the license to be honest as a way of venting aggression, which is always relationship destructive.

Millions of people live according to the adage "honesty is the best policy."

In this show, Dr. Jamie Turndorf reveals the truth about honesty. She exposes the dangers of brutal honesty, explaining the little known fact that many people vent mountains of aggression under the guise of "just being honest."

While there is short-term gratification in getting "it" off one's chest, there are long-term destructive consequences associated with this plan of attack. Among other things, those who are on the receiving end of such expressions of honesty store up anger and retaliate, creating greater relationship distress.

The only way out is to give up the gratification of short-term release, curb honesty for honesty sake, and instead assert oneself, set limits and state needs using constructive communications that benefit all parties.

Join Dr. Turndorf for what promises to be an honest to goodness eye opening show.
