They Say, “Confession is good for the soul.”
Others say, “Speaking truth is our moral duty.”
I say, most people have been in a situation when being honest turned into bending the truth. I’m not a supporter of people who tell bold-faced lies, there is no excuse for lying. When I speak about bending the truth I mean trying to spare a person pain. But is hiding information from an individual in their best interest not to know the truth, despite the discomfort that reality will caused them.
Wasn’t there a game show in the 70’s or 80’s called “Truth or Consequence?”
When we are sworn into a court of law, we swear to “tell the truth and nothing but the truth.” Parents teach their children to be honest, no matter what the situation, they must tell the truth. While in the process of development a relationship whether imitate or a friendship, we hold others to be trustworthy. Yet, in many of these scenarios there may be a breach of trust because the truth is hidden behind little while lies.
What say you?
I challenge you to speak the truth
Sometimes it is generous to omit some of the truth if it causes the person harm for example bad things about their parents that would have no merit for someone to know.
