  1. 1 should be "He is honest with himself." (not "in")
    It means he's not lying to himself or he is dealing with facts, not hopes and wishes.

    2, 3, and 4 are all fine and mean approximately the same thing, but with a tense change in 4.

    5 needs to have "she was" in it (not "were" since "she" is singular), and it's fine.
