Is sparing one feelings a good reason to lie to someone or do you tell them the truth regardless?


I believe this is a question we have all faced at some point time. It is most likely the most common kind of lie people tell (to spare one's feelings). And for many people this kind of lying is directed towards those we love the most. Is sparing someone's feeling a good reason? Or do you tell people the truth regardless.

    celafoe- My Dad had a saying that goes like this:

    "It is far better to tell the truth and earn their respect, than to lie and keep a seceret.

    Thanks celafoe

    snapbackbetty- I agree, truth should always be told. If a lie is discovered, the pain an a result usually cuts deeper. God bless
