In an attempt to help that is when we screw things up even more. I think it is very unfair but that is what happens in the world.
I wish you could tell someone the truth and and it would make them happier not sad, mad and well sad. The truth does not set people free.Whoever said that needs to be hanged! It just chains them down with self doubt, doubt in general, and fear.
We are taught that not sharing the truth, like a good little boy or good little girl should, makes you a “bad person”. Ruining someone’s happy day is also the same thing,right?
If you have ever taken a toddler’s prized toy, the face, that face before the child begins to below out is the equivalent of ruining someone’s day. That sadness in those innocent eyes, that is what you would have done.
These rules developed about always telling the truth only work till a certain age. After that things get complicated and you learn the hard way.
So next time you want to” set someone free” with your awesome words of wisdom, keep it to yourself till you start feeling sceptical about telling them. If you do not do this, well done! You can tell them. It means its the right thing to do or you are a psychopath!
Just remember, as a wise person once said,
” The road to hell is paved with good intentions.”
