Are literally like the worst people to me.
I mean, if you have something to say to me, don’t lie to me. Just straight up tell me. You’re just wasting my time. And yours.
It’s stupid. Yes, it is easier to think that lying will hurt them less, but in the long run, so much more damage is done that is not easily fixed. And it can seriously screw up a lot of things.
I prefer being overly truthful, sometimes to the point where it’s offensive rather than lie to someone when avoidable.
Not because it’s the right thing to do or anything, it’s just it makes sense. I would want someone to tell me, “hey, you need to do THIS so you can stop being like THAT,” versus saying “oh no keep doing that totally awesome thing”. Just stop.
Lies will always hurt more than the truth.
