Topic : Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? Sometimes it is better not to tell the truth. Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.
It is crystal clear that we should be honest individuals in our lives. Personally, I believe that sometimes we can not be as frank and honest as much as possible. I feel this way for two reasons, which I will explore in the following essay. To begin with, most misunderstandings and problems between persons occur when they say something which they should not say in that specific situation. Because human beings are the most emotional and at the same time most logical creatures living on the earth, some truth may bother them instead of making them happy. Usually, people tend to be more happy than conscious and know all the facts around them. My personal experience is a compelling illustration of this. When I was at school, sometimes I said the bare truth to my classmates and sometimes they thought that I wanted to bother them and it made them mad at me. Moreover, When you are always telling the truth, you make it hard for your friends to be totally honest with you. Because all people have some secrets that they are reluctant to disclose, and telling the truth all the time enforce you to disclose some of their secrets. In contrast, if you want to be a person that is not honest in every situation, your friends can trust you more, so they tell you their personal secrets, and therefore you can be a more loyal friend to them. For instance, when I made the decision not telling all the truth, I found more close friends. In conclusion, I strongly believe that it is not favorable and possible,to be honest in every situation. This is because it may lead to misunderstandings and make people upset, in addition, this action from us can transmit the signal of distrust to our friends.
