Some people strongly belive that lying is definitely bad. They always think that the truth is always the best and lying is egregious because it make people belive in somethings which are not real and after these thing are discovered, people must be suffered from disapointing, bittering feeling. Hardly can they see that there are some place where lying is remakebly positive. In some case, lying helps people have hope in future and relief from pains that they are suffering
Sometimes, lying encourages people to live, to work better. It provide people with hopes. When a child solves a math problem in a terible way, his teacher may not says the truth but instead this teacher can say that his student’s job is not bad and help this student desire the best solution. The lying which the teacher told his student make this student not feel sad, disapointed and also encourage this student to work better. When I make a wrong solution, my chemistry teacher never told that “ you are wrong” instead he said that “ oh, you just weren’t success but don’t worry suceed will come to you soon”. What he sad always make me think that I not stupid and I can prove myself.
Moreover, some lies can help people relief from their pains much more than what the truth can do. Doctor never tells their cancer patient about his real status but he says that their diseas can be treat. It make these patient fell much more better. They can solace their from thoughts that they are dying or lossing their hope. Twenty years ago, my gandfather was told to be lung cancer. After hearing this, he became hopeless. He came to his doctor and asked this doctor how long he could live. Instead of saying that my grandfather have only little time, he said that my grandfather should not worried about this diseas because it was not as serious as my grandfather told and it could be cured. Myfather, after meeting his doctor, he became love his life agains and try more to get over his diseas. As a result, now, he still lives healthly
Lying is not as bad as what people think about. Although, ussualy, lying is not good, it also have times when lying is the best for all because it prevent people from being disponent and help them escape from their pains
