Truth hurts...but...


It's sometimes better to say a stern "no" rather than making a person doubt about what's going on in your mind...

I hate it when people take your generosity and hesitation to hurt them as something else..

The truth hurts but sometimes there is no other way around..

Yet....telling a truth to someone early can reduce their pain...
I believe so...

True..

I agree.
The root cause of problems is that people don't mean when they speak.

There's a need to bring a change in this attitude.

Yes, it's always great to tell the truth but we need discernment before we tell the truth to someone. The end does not always justify the means. There is always such a thing as appropriate timing and discerning whether the person is ready to accept the truth or not. If not, you will just make an enemy out of that person. Thanks for the post. God bless you always my young friend. Merry Christmas to you all.

It all depends on the context.

Sometimes a lie may be required.

Even our scriptures say
Na Bhrooyath Satyam Apriyam - dont tell a truth that is hurtful

nands said...

I agree with Suresh.

But if it's in best interest of that person, you need to tell that truth even though it may be very hurting.

Its always right to tell the truth. If that truth hurts someone very badly then its our responsibility to let them know it in a way which dusn coz much damage.

m sure telling truth now is good option cuz it wont hurt later but at times its so difficult to say the trust knowing that we will be losing someone soon. WE become selfish n we carry on with our life in what ever it is.

true.. saying a no is far better than telling a yes and postponing it or never doing it.

Very true but it's easier said than done. Sugar-coating is an integral part of human nature.. hehe

(I'm a first time visitor. Nice blog!)

AS said...

ya I agree but there are situations where u cant just tell the truth...u have to procrastinate

Suree said...

hmm... i dont agree with u

Keshi said...

ur right. It's better to come out with the bitter truth than to fool someone with sugar-coated lies. Cuts down alot of wasted time and energy as well.


Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to u Joyce! XOXO :)

Ya.. If we say "Yes" when we want to say "No", we would land up hurting ourselves too.. So, its better we remain truthful and say NO to be happy :)

Vani said...

ofcourse..truth may hurt..But its always better to get done with it than enjoying the false comfort of lies..

Resurgence said...

It's good to be straight forward but we should always keep in mind the way we expess those feelings... :)

Sourav !!! said...

Agree .. But a firm NO is not always possible .. it actually depends on the kind of people you are dealing with !

First time to your blog .. liked it .. will be here more often :)

Take care !
