Is honesty really the best policy?

I like to believe so. But the phrase does prove to be wrong in certain situations. Situations when the other person really doesn't need to know the truth and might not even like it. Which in turn results in negative behaviour towards us from them.

Sometimes I have to lie just to make someone feel better. There's no other way around it other than hurting them by telling them the truth. So I suppose not being honest in those situations is alright.

Still I prefer to be honest as much as I can be whenever the situation calls upon itself.
