This past week I have been thinking about the value of truth telling in our lives.

It surprises me how easily we can at times decide to dispense with the truth. There are many different reasons for this, some perhaps noble, not hurting another’s feelings, all the way to outright lying to protect ourselves from a wrong we have committed.

This quote is the Tweet of the week is offered from the perspective of the one being lied to and not a piece of advice to the truth bender.

When you look at another person and in your mind you get ready to tell them an out and out untruth, remember that you are in effect making a value judgment that this person is not worth spending the truth on.

There may be many people in your life that you just don’t care that much about but when you look into the face of a loved one or a person close to you, trust enough to tell them the truth.
