Is there ever a situation where it is better for all involved if one decides to not tell the truth?

Would it help? Maybe you the person you know wouldnt care and could help a lot of people including you. If this sht is even real.. You in the family of Ra? You don't want to do it yourself. Maybe its just a script though for One person since there is a lot of work put in on him. Maybe Im totally fckin wrong.. Just #in talk normal or everyone fcked if you happen to be awake. Noone cares but the truth and the truth forgives.. Rjjjjjjjjjjjjjjaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhh

Here's a good rule to follow: If it eats you up inside, then it's better to let it all out (and not in a crowded elevator) (Yes, I know I'm using guy humor here). Basically, if withholding the truth hurts you, don't withhold it.

A long time ago, I had to break off a relationship because she was suffocating me - I kept it a secret that I wanted out for a year, and finally told her. She asked the hardest question "What did I do?". I used a half truth (it wasn't working out). The truth would have hurt her worse that this. So in this case, it saved some of her spirit.

If you want another context - we suspect that the reason for my parent's divorce was because someone had an affair. Guarantee you this, if the guilty party had told the truth, then my relationship with that person would pretty much be severed and it would have changed who I am.

My advice - if you cannot tell a lie, tell a half-truth to lesson the blow.

Well if youre a pssy and nothing to really relate about it everyones spirit will be crushed.. why not come together and who cares about the lies. Who was trying to blow before the half truth came alive

Good I really thought your secret was "I just don't like you"

I like truth it is preferable than keeping someone invested and wasting their time. You may be over estimating yourself or underestimating the other person. "irrevocably emotionally invested".. perhaps ask yourself how much you really like having their affections as it does come off as gloating despite implying you're paying them a kindness.

If it's a situation where not telling the truth actually makes their life worse in the long run just man up and hurt them now.

I say that you should get a big bucket of fried chicken, sit down, have some chicken and talk it through.

If things done shake out right, at least you guys got some chicken.
