Everybody knows this situation- somebody ask you about something and want you to be honest. You don’t want to hurt him/ her so you’re saying what you know he/ she wants to hear. – or you don’t want to meet somebody and you’re searching for an excuse which might be not honest. These are just some examples I think there are a lot of situations you’re searching for a white lie and use it.
There are situation in which I’m not honest because I don’t want to hurt somebody with the truth or because I think that it is better to lie because the whole situation would go by easier.
But I’m trying to be honest and trying to avoid white lies.
In high society it’s difficult to be honest because they would say it’s rude just because you’re telling the truth.
So on the one hand you have to lie sometimes to be of good standing and to be distinguished as a kindly and friendly person but on the other hand when some persons get the fact that you’re a liar and the most important thing you feel bad.
“The truth may sometimes hurt for a moment, but the pain you experience from a lie can last forever.”
Sure in some situations, for example when you get a present you don’t like, it’s better to lie because you know the truth would hurt the person who gave you the present.
But “Tell the truth, or somebody will tell it for you.”. I think it’s difficult to say we have to be honest every time because if we are it will hurt somebody and we don’t want to hurt somebody we like.
But I think it’s in some ways always better to be honest because every lie will let on.
You see that it’s sometimes necessary to lie but it’s always better to be honest because nobody likes dishonesty.
I’m trying my best to be honest!
