i think it would be impossible to "always" tell the truth xx

I always strive to tell the truth most of the time. There will be times that the truth could get someone killed, there is no doubt that I would do whatever necessary it is to save them. But just to save someones feelings, usually not...but I've been told to be "nice."

I guess the main thing that it depended on is if a lie would hurt more than the truth. I don't like lying but if it was to protect someone feelings, and if that person wouldn't get hurt by the lie you are telling them, then I would lie to spare their feelings. But if they needed to learn the lesson that the truth will teach them, I would have to tell them and hope that they would forgive me for hurting their feelings.

yes it is a difficult choice to make knowing that it could benefit them in the long run but will hurt them at the time x

Depends much on the subject of the so called truth, i can tell it if its worth all the efforts doing it.
