Do you agree or disagree with the following statement?
Always telling the truth is the most important consideration in any relationship between people.
Different people hold distinct views when it comes to whether telling the truth is the most important consideration in any relationship between people. If I had to make a decision, I would not go with that to tell the truth always is the most important consideration between people. In the following discussion, I would like to provide some reasons to support my point of view.
First of all, some people are not willing to hear the truth that is unhappy or scared. For example, my friend got the serious disease, so he should not live longer. In order to make him live more happily in the rest of his life, I did not tell him real truth about his disease. There is no better example to showcase than this.
However, there are skeptics. Some people think that people who do not tell the truth can not be trusted, and their relationship could be destroyed. However, if people heard the truth, they would become more frustrated and do something harmful to their bodies.
Another important fact that I’d like to point out here is that getting along with people happily is the most important consideration between people for any relationship. For instance, one day, I arrange a wedding proposal for my girlfriend in the hospital, but I did not tell her before. When she was working in the hospital, she heard that I got a terrible car accident and needed a surgery. However, she finally found the accident is not a real thing, and she was a little angry. In spite of a joke, the wedding proposal is unforgettable experience for her. Therefore, I considered that always telling the truth is not the most important consideration in any relationship between people.
To sum up, on the basis of the reasons presented above, which correlate with each other to generate an integrated and complete argument, we have no reason to doubt that I disagree that always telling the truth is the most important consideration in any relationship between people.
