What is better the truth even if it hurts, or a lie?
Truth. The truth is always better.
I grew up in a house where lying was basically a cardinal sin. Okay, don’t get me wrong, stupid little white lies don’t count. Like if someone cooks you a meal, they put a ton of work into it and you don’t love it, just pretend. That is a situation where fibbing is okay to avoid hurting someone’s feelings.
But full out lying to people. That is bad, very bad. Wouldn’t you rather just deal with the consequences of telling a truth rather than lying and being found out. If you lie and get caught, not only are their feelings hurt because they found out what you truly thought, but they’re probably pissed that you lied about it. So, it’s like double bad than just being upfront and the other person not liking your opinion.
End point: liars don’t prosper. Just tell the damn truth, at the end of the day you’ll have a clear conscience and eventually the people that you told a hurtful truth to will appreciate your honesty, even if it wasn’t exactly what they wanted to hear.
I want to hear from you!
