Don't Say The Truth, It Hurts - I'd Rather Live A Lie
Jenny woke up early to hear her parents quarreling in their bedroom in a way they thought she wouldn't get to hear. They had never had a fight before as far as Jenny could recall so something wasn't just right, Jenny thought. Jenny was very young but could understand a well heated argument and a mild one although she didn't know the main reason of their argument.
Time for breakfast! Jenny's mum called with the lovely voice that Jenny didn't hear during the argument. Jenny came down for breakfast and was happy to see her parents eating and smiling like nothing happened. Jenny left for school and her parents visited their divorce lawyer where they got a form to sign after much thoughts on it.
Jenny's parents called for her after school hours and asked for forgiveness about what they were about to tell her and Jenny was able to guess what they wanted to tell her and before her dad began talking, Jenny paused him and said:
"Don't say the truth of what you're about to say, live a lie with me. I'd rather live a lie with you two together."
What would be your take on this issue? Isn't it really best that the truth isn't said? Jenny's parents have to find a way to settle their differences and not hurting Jenny. The truth might shatter her so it's best not said.
Are there more scenario where it's best the truth should be left unsaid? There could be. But then, how about this? Tell the truth now so one can deal with the hurt now than later.
Truth they say, will surely come to light... One can't shy away from the truth, you've got to face it and mend the hurt somehow.
I have to be honest. I have been part of Hive for almost a week, and I am already seriously considering leaving. While I have felt extremely welcomed by many members, others, like a certain someone who wrote a post purporting to help newbies, but directed at my transgressions, have left a very bad taste in my mouth.
She said it and got it out of her mind, imagine if she had just left Hive without saying this truth? The mistakes she pointed out would still be there, more writers like her wouldn't get to know Hive because I believe every Hiver is a testimony to his or her part of the world in bringing more people to Hive. So it was for the best she said the truth even though it scared a few Hivers like me.
- Don't hide the truth, say it
- If you don't want to hurt anyone, don't tell a lie
- Truth and lie can't go together and truth will always win so, say it.
