Too many of us have been too afraid to be honest or say the truth, we think by being honest our spouse, our friends or our sisters would not love us any more.
I like truth especially when we are friends, I want to hear the truth from you (I probably won't hear it from the frenemies). If you can't tell me the truth then the whole essence of friendship is lost I think.
Some say, they are protecting the person but I say who made you the Lord or Judge. How do you know to decide your lying is protecting the person in question?
True, truth hurts but I think finding out later that you are not worth the truth hurts more. I used to believe in protecting parties but not any more, in fact, my new maxim is “Hurt me with the truth”. I think the only exception to the rule for me is if my lying is going to save someone from being killed then may be I will lie..lol.
Or may be I just might never know if I will tell the truth or lie until I am faced with the situation but then I have proposed in my heart not to lie because I am trying to save my face or any friendship…I probably will lose the friend anyway when he/she finds out the truth.
What’s your take on this issue, I would like to hear your views?
