Based on my previous essays on truth, I think it’s fairly obvious that I think that people should not lie, if at all possible.
I find that most people I meet do not want to tell people the truth if it might offend or sadden them. As far as I know, they do this either to be nice to them, or because they want to avoid conflict, or don’t care. For all people who think like this, especially the people who do not want to offend others, the reality is you’re being nice to them by considering their feelings, but you’re being a lot more inconsiderate because they deserve to know the truth so that they can know and so that they can fix their problems.
If I do something that offends, annoys, makes someone angry or sad or anything else, I want to know. I will not get offended, and even if I do, I know that it’s better to know the truth, and that I should not be offended, so it’s OK.
With that said, when you tell someone the truth you should not do so angrily, you should do so nicely, for their sake, to inform them, not to show their anger.
Most people don’t do this though, and it’s weird for me to ask people to do it, especially if I barely know them. For this reason, I would like to ask anyone who is reading this who knows me to please, in all situations, be honest with me. if I ever do anything to annoy, offend, insult, or make you angry or sad or anything similar, please tell me. But also, please tell me to inform me, there is no need to tell me angrily, I just want to know that you’re informing me, not venting or trying to offend me. Regardless, I will not get offended, and I will try to fix the problem. I don’t want others to have to put up with something just for me.
To everyone who I have offended, insulted, annoyed, or made angry or sad, and to all those who I will do this to in the future who will not tell me about it, I’m sorry. I don’t mean to. Please tell me about this in the future, no matter how little you know me. Thank you.
