A Status that I saw on Facebook today, has given me something to write about.
The status said, “Would you rather someone made you happy with a lie or sad with the truth?” Everyone, apart from me, said “sad with the truth.” My initial thought was, ‘happy with a lie.’
Now If I’m completely honest, I think it depends on the lie! Obviously there are circumstances in which the truth would be better! Adultery being one and if your husband commits armed robbery without telling you, then spends all the money on himself, I guess you’d be a bit peeved! But surely, sometimes a little white lie doesn’t hurt?
So, to all the women out there who say “Sad with the truth,” answer me this…
… Next time you put on your favourite ‘far too tight’ dress that shows every inch of your triple layer Cellulite and you ask your boyfriend/husband, “Does this look nice?” or “Does my bum look big in this?” What do you want him to say? The truth?…
… No, I didn’t think so!
I, for one, would be more than happy, with a little white lie! X
