  • I don't lie - but I also don't believe it's always completely necessary to tell everything you know. If the person you're talking to doesn't NEED information (such as another friend simply cannot tollerate your friend) there's NO need to tell that. - of the fact that you think their kid is the worst brat you've ever met. A true friend will tell you the truth. And be wise about what you need to know to improve your life and when to keep their mouth shut because telling some things isn't helpful.

  • Truth

  • I don't like hurting people and I don't like lying. If the truth hurt, I'd tell them and I'd make sure that they knew that I wasn't trying to kick them when they're down.

  • The truth I don't want people pissed at me for lying.

  • A tough question to answer without a context to work with, but I suppose it would generally be hurt then with the truth because a lie will only compound the issue; whatever it may be.
