Do You Always Tell The Truth?
- Such a tough question since I like being honest and being truthful, but I would lying if I said I have never told a lie; even now as an adult. However, I pride myself with being able to tell the truth in most cases, but in many cases I have found that I sugar coat the truth if I know the honesty might hurt someone’s feelings or could cause for more problems (which in turn means I am not really being 100 percent honest) but I can live with that, if it means I am not tearing someone’s heart out or making them feel less than their best. People say they would rather hear the truth, but many people can’t honestly handle it, so I have to consider the situation and how much of the truth to tell, and how to word it in order to make it so it doesn’t come off as though I am being a B word. I prefer to be 100 percent honest, because I would want the same in return (even if it does hurt me) at least I know & in theory I always start with telling the truth but I won’t deny there have been times I have fabricated the truth to protect somebody or myself — not my proudest moments but I have done it. Sometimes the truth can lead to more problems and sometimes people are in denial of the truth which doesn’t help your case, I guess I shouldn’t make excuses for the times I have lied, but I am just saying, the truth sometimes holds worse consequences. In general, I consider myself a very honest person.
How about you, do you ALWAYS tell the truth, have there been situations where you didn’t tell the truth? share in the comment section.
