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.
