To Tell the Truth? by Antavius Sims
Just like the fact that evil can sometimes prevail over good is the very uncommon reason why the truth can sometimes not be the best policy in certain situations. For example, if someone is trying to find information that could ruin someone’s reputation and will ultimately drive that person to commit suicide if he or she has low self-esteem. You could tell the truth about what you that person had done, or tell a lie by saying you haven’t heard anything about that person. If you told the truth in that situation you would probably have a little guilt in your heart knowing that you could possibly contribute to that person’s death. Another scenario is when someone says that if you tell the truth he or she will kill you. You can easily get this idea from the start. The killer will also know if you are telling the truth because he or she will use a lie-detector test. Know look how serious the situation is now. I know that these unprecedented and unfortunate situations are here, but these situations can actually happen to anyone at anytime no matter who you are or what you do. That goes to show you that you should think before you speak.
