What Would You Rather Hear?
Would you rather be told the truth about yourself, or lies? Be it bad or good?
Truth hurts, but you need to know the truth to change for the better!
The truth because believe it or not it always comes out anyway
Truth, always. It pisses me off when I ask someone a question and they ask if I want to hear the truth. No, b***h, give me the best fairytale you can come up with!!!
The truth, good or bad. The truth inevitably comes out in the long run so there's little point in lying. That said, there is a big difference between blunt, hurtful truth and tactful truth, and it's important to know when to use which one.
@Terry: I doubt you're really the bad guy - you seem pretty level-headed to me. Most people just don't like to hear the truth in response to questions they've asked, and get offended when it's actually offered. I tell my friends and family that they shouldn't ask me questions they don't want the honest answer to because that's what they'll get.
People know the truth, deep down, when they're asking for affirmation or vindication; they just don't want to own up to it or face it.
Correct on the history. It's those who unapologetically tell the truth and stand for their beliefs that we remember.
I am surprised Terry you find it shocking that we ladies have opted for the truth. We don't play with fools. If something needs to be told which would end up hurting us later on tell the truth. But most importantly you always need to continue being truthful to yourself. If you lie to yourself of course expect others to lie to you.
I will not say anything to anyone for the sake of it.
I had to break up with a few exs and saying the truth that I was no longer in love with them, hurt but true. The responses unforgivable.
So truthful behaviour wins hands down for me.
By the way I agree with heather you seem like a really cool and nice person
Definitely the truth. Lies don't help me fix what's messed up. I hate liars...
I like to know the truth. I hate thinking that everything seems fine but maybe something is going on in the background you dont know.
When I first met my bf he used to be scared to tell me stuff because he didnt want to upset me... not realising it hurt way more to be told later on and feel embarrassed and hurt for not noticing earlier. If you want to be the best person you can you need to have constructive feedback! :)
