Do we hurt other by saying Truth?

Hello everyone, I am most amazed when I see people becoming angry to me only because I said the truth.Truth is truth even if its bitter. Saying lie about things frequently to be having safe distance from troubles makes me feel guilty.But when I speak the truth sometimes the situations become much harder to control. Is it better to hide the truth that makes troubles? What should I do? Help me.

I think most people are afraid of the truth, so they become defensive if you try and tell them what's true. I also think that the way we say the truth can make a difference. If it's just blurted out then it's much more likely to offend than if said in a gentler way.

The truth sometimes hurts because we humans are known to dream a little and hope a little and sometimes it's easier to do that than to accept the truth. i feel that truth is a perception that one holds about something and the stronger the perception the stronger the hurt.

Remember Jack Nicholson--"You can't handle the truth!"? Sometimes the reality of a situation is painful to face. I do not see how refusing to accept reality could be helpful to anybody, but a lot of folks appear to think otherwise. So it is risky to speak out sometimes. I sympathize with your plight but I do not have a definitive answer. If being accepted by others is of prime importance to you, then you had best keep some thoughts to yourself.
