Don't ever tell the truth!!!

January 1, 2010 11:38am CST
I'm never telling the truth ever again! It's a long story, so I won;t bore you to death with it, but I told the truth about how I felt and I ruined EVERYTHING, I ended up with NOTHING as I always seem to do when I tell the truth! So needless to say I am never ever telling the truth ever again. When was the last time you ruined something by telling the truth? Do you ever lie? Do you wish you had lied?

Hmmm...The one thing I don't want to do is to tell a lie. Thank God i always tried not to tell a lie (I prayed not to tell a lie). for me a lie might be the quickest way out, but you'll lose credibility and trust (these two is not easy to be earned, but very easy to destroy) in the end. I guess telling the truth needs to have a little wisdom, simply being quite is the best way not to tell the truth that could bring to certain problems. I just feel that there are times we tell the truth, and there are times that we need to be quiet. I guess when you said it, things has to be exposed anyhow. DOn't feel bad there is a time for everything. Happy new year.

You're right, I don;t think they would have known if I was lying, but still....

The biggest obstacle to telling the truth is all those people who don't want to hear the truth, or believe it when they do. No I don't lie, though I do at times avoid the truth if possible, and yes there are times when for a fleeting moment, I wished I had lied.

I've burned a few bridges by telling the truth. Most of them needed burning, so I felt no remorse. A few I wish I'd handled differently, but mostly I'm glad I said whatever the truth was that needed saying. When my (infamous) step-daughter goes shopping with her mother, she almost always comes home with clothing that isn't appropriate for a teenager (in my opinion). What mother encourages her daughter (who's pretty heavyset) to wear clothing that is extremely tight (showing rolls), lowcut (enhanced by new push-up bra), and way too short? When she modeled the clothes and asked what I thought, I asked what street corner she was assigned to. That's what it looked like! Explaining to my step-daughter that leaving a little to the imagination is better than 'laying it all on the table' earned me the knickname 'Hag'. So be it.

Apparently people do not like to be called liar.but I think sometimes telling the truth is not the best way to end of it.for example have a friends who got a serious disease we usually do not tell the turth to relieve suffering .as long as your purpose is goodwell just do it.

hi 3cardmonte nope I do not lie as I am a poor liar anyway and once or twice I tried to fib and my face gave me away. besides I do not like to lie as the truth is always the best way to go as you do not have to remember the lie, and you are free. If you felt a certain way and told the truth then you were not the one at fault at all. the other person evidently did not react as you wanted but you cannot force p;eople to react as you would like them to sadly but truly. Nope I never wish I had lied as lies have a way of coming back to bite you in the butt. Life is not fair so we have to learn to deal with it.

I think telling the truth is always the right way to go, yet sometimes one has to know what to do in what situation. For instance if you have feelings for someone and you plan on telling them you must be ready for the rejection that could occur if they do not feel the same way about you. In a case like this you have to know for sure if telling this saying how you feel is necessary or worthwhile. I have lied a couple of times,especially white lies but I always try to tell the truth.

well, it happened once that i lost a person because i haven't sad anything about what i sad..in time. so, next time that i felt something for someone else, i've sad it.....but it was to early, so i almost ruined everything. i haven't lost that person, but it was close. now we are just friends, but still, i feel the same, but we act like never happened. And i don't think that you have to lie about your feelings about someone.....but you just have to...hide the truth...sometimes. Sometimes you have to find the right moment, sometimes whatever you say it or not, it will be the same, and sometimes you risk to lose everything. But how do we know that? How do we know when it's the right moment? How do we know if we should tell, or hide the truth? Do we just have to gamble?

You know, as i see it, whatever it was, you are better of without it. Telling the truth is not always the bad guy in any situation. Rather tell the truth and know you did the right thing for whatever the circumstances may be, than lying and get caught and that will make things even worse. Whatever the problem was, i KNOW you did the right thing.

I don't think not telling the truth will help any situation. I have ruined relationships with family for telling the truth, but in the long run it made us closer, same with friends. I personally don't like lying, it has never helped anything. If i don't lie then i have nothing to feel guilty about, and telling the truth shouldn't be guilt ridden.
