Telling the Truth & Lying for a Reason

Hello everyone!

Is lying okay in some situations? And when do you have to tell the truth?

Those are the questions that I (and I'm sure you too) am confronted with on a daily basis.

I lie. When I don't want to hurt someone's feelings for example. Also if I don't want to get into trouble.
I guess if you lie to save someone from something hurtful, but not really that important, it's okay. 
For example, telling my friend loads of boys like her when she's feeling down is fine, a "white lie". But saying my brother made the mess in the bathroom when it was actually me, is, (although it is not very bad), a real lie. In most situations I can tell the difference. But sometimes it gets hard.

Is my friend had a bad looking spot would I tell her, if I knew that knowing would make a very self-conscious?

If my classmate drew something rude on a table and wouldn't on up, even though it would have consequences for the whole class, would I rat him out, I'll pretend not to know? (Or I could just beat him up, the coward)

Where I make sure to always tell the truth is when it comes to really serious things. If someone could get seriously hurt, emotionally or physically, you should definitely tell the truth.

But again, there are certain circumstances where that's not the right thing either...

I think you have to find it in yourself whether the lie you want to tell is acceptable or not.

I certainly struggle with these things. Do you? Feel free to comment down below!


  1. Just tell the truth always. I believe that if the situation arises where you really do need to lie, you'll do it anyway.

    The Life of Little Me

    1. Yeah, you're right. We will lie if we have to

  2. I believe that lying is never the best option. The truth will be revealed sooner or later anyway. And as Mark Twain put it: "If you tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything."



    1. That's so true! Lies are probably very hard to remember.

    2. Things get way to complex when you lie, Little things become bigger and so do those "little" lies. It may be hard, but the truth is the way to go. Glad I found your blog it helps so much. :)

    3. Thanls so much. Yep, you have to Be very careful when you lie-or just not lie at all

  3. sometimes white lies also come with its consequences. it's best to at least try to tell the truth :)

    1. I'm still struggling with my layout, sorry. But what icy out copy my address and add it on your dashboard? And thanks!

  4. I vote for the truth. I know that even though I might be self-conscious, I'd want someone to tell me. But white lies aren't so bad. :)

    1. Yeah you're right. I want my friends to tell me when I look like death itself :)
