Rewriting assignment: Law # 5

Robert Greene’s Law # 5: “So much depends on reputation- guard it with your life”

In my own words: Law # 5. Honesty IS the best policy.

If you are honest and authentic in your expressions and interactions with life then you have nothing to hide; any potential saboteurs will reveal themselves to you, and that will be a positive thing because then you will know who is not a friend to you, and you wont have to spend time/energy      on/with them…

There’s no need to burn bridges completely with these people or harbor any ill feelings towards them… (that doesn’t mean “forgive and forget”, but rather “forgive and learn”)

Leaving a window open for your own personal saboteurs in the chance that they would like to apologize to you is characteristic of a wholesome individual.
