  1. Hurtful truth or comfortable lies? A good question and I actually think there can sometimes justifiably be a place for both.

    1. Thanks. Yes, a good question indeed. The problem we have is that lies don’t stop at small, or white lies.

      The more we lie, the more we continue to lie, the bigger the lies becomes. White lies are used in order not to hurt another person’s feelings.

      The other problem we have is that we have got used to lying. As hard as it is to hear the truth, the truth will always prevail.

      If we told the truth and made a point of always telling the truth, communities, society and the world would look and feel different today.
