Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? Sometimes it is better not to tell the truth. Use specific reasons and details to support your answer.
Truth plays an important part in the lives of many people. Truth refers to honest between people. It makes life more beautiful and lovely. Some people believed that it is better not to tell the truth; other disagree. In my view, telling truth is better than not telling the truth for two important reasons.
The main reason is that truth distinguishes between a good friends and a bad friends. The good friend always tells the truth to her/his friends and not hide it. He or she does not lie about the truth because she or he loves them. So if the friend saw you do anything bad or good, she or he will tell you immediately. Otherwise, if the bad friends saw anything bad or good, she or he will not tell you anything but he or she will laugh behind you. For example, in the past, I had three friends and we always played and went to school together. Someday, we invent to the party of our partner in the class. So we met each other in my house, wore beautiful dresses and nice shoes and put make up. Then we went to the party together. By the time we ate the cakes, my dress was dirty without I knew. So two of my friends saw that and laughed at me, but the another one saw that and told me. Therefore, I discovered who was my real friend and form this event in the part until now she is my best friend. Moreover, Telling truth is distinguished between the good friends and the bad friends.
The another reason is that truth sometimes opens person’s eyes about the facts he or she does not know about them. There are many facts that people do not see them because they are busy. Some people do many mistakes in the life that they think they are good thing but in fact they are bad things. These mistakes are do it because some people are uneducated or busy and they think in another things. For example, when I studied in the university, I was very busy and I had many exams and assignments. So every day I came to my house, I said hello to my mother and I went to my room and slept. Then I woke up and studied and wrote my homework until the mid-night. After that, I slept and woke up in the morning to went to my university. Someday, my sister came to me and told me that my mother was very sick and she was very sad because I did not sit with her and did know about her health. After this, I always set with my mother after I came from my university. Also, I said to her good night every day and asked about her health. So my sister opens my eyes about the truth that my mother missed me and she was very sad because I did not take care of her. Furthermore, telling truth always open people’s eyes about that fact that they do not see it.
In conclusion, though some people believed that it better not to tell the truth, I believe that telling truth is better than not telling. In addition, truth distinguishes between the good friends and the bad friends and sometimes open person’s eyes about the fact he or she does not see it. Every person should tell the truth to each other in every time.
