There are good lies. When someone has on ugly clothes and you tell them that they look nice. You can tell a good lie so you do not hurt their feelings. Bad lies are when you steal and do not care that the costs goes up because of your stealing and the stealing of others. The person who did the stealing would be the first to say that they never steal. Which would be a lie. A bad lie. Because sooner or later you will be caught in that lie.

Yes, some lies are worth making. A perfect example would be to tell a child that Santa Claus exists.

Yes there are some things that you just can't be honest about because it would be hurtful-I hate that!

I don't believe there are any 'good' lies. I would rather be honest with people. They need to know they could have chosen something better to wear. Tact is a good one instead of lies.

I don't like to lie at all. Lying is one of my biggest pet peeves. But if the situation calls for it, I can be gentle and maybe avoid answering the question like the ugly clothes one! If not I would use a tiny white lie maybe. Like Santa does certainly exist or yes that looks okay on you.
