Sadje is our host for Sunday Poser. her question today is:
How truthful are you?
The truth is, I often omit things I don’t want to share. Lies of omission are less damaging in my opinion. There are times when omitting something that could harm or hurt someone is preferable to the truth.
Things I never lie about are things I have no control over. I can’t change my shoe size, so why lie about it. I can’t change my age, so why lie about it. I don’t care to share how much money I had to pay Uncle Sam, so instead of lying about it, I will just keep my mouth shut.
Most of the time honesty is the best policy. But there are exceptions that I feel no guilt for. I feel protecting someone’s safety and kindness are good reasons to keep things to yourself.
