Describe a time when you told your friend an important truth
You should say
Who your friend is?
What was the truth?
What your friend’s reaction was?
Explain why it was important for you to tell the truth to your friend.
My close friend’s name is Chinna, he currently working in the banking industry, He is the only one with whom I share my happiness and sorrows. He is my go-to buddy.
Once, I took his bike for a small need, but unfortunately, I met with a small accident, I put a dent on his silencer I hit a wall on way to return it back to him. That is his favourite bike it was gifted by his father on his 18th birthday. I repaired the bike and silently parked in the house and left. I hide this truth from my friend for a very long.
Once I spilt the beans and explained to him the truth, He reacted Very calmly he first asked did something happened to you it looks emotional he is that kind. Then he said it is ok nothing happened to you, Bike can be repaired but if you hurt that will be a big problem for our parents.
It is, you should tell the truth, he is your friend and that too he is very close to mine I cannot hide it for so long. You have to be loyal in your friendship.
Truth is pivotal, many religion also supports to tell truth, however, sometimes telling someone to truth is not comfortable, sometimes it ruins a relationship.
Today I would like to talk about the time when I told truth to my friend about his behaviour with his parents.
His name is Keyur, we are best friends and we are also live in the same colony. We tend to spend times outside rather than in each other homes, solving puzzles is piece of cake for him. I know him very well but I didn’t know his behaviour with their parents especially with mom until last year lockdown.
Last year, during lockdown due to covid I used to go his home, before that time I only went there for a purpose and for some period. That time I noticed his behaviour with his mother was very bad, it was the first time thus, I thought it is no the way to interpret because this is not my house.
However, I have seen it regularly, whenever I see that time I irritated. Finally, after some times I decided to tell it, whatever outcomes will.
One day, I told the truth about his behaviour with his parents and he was angry with me, also he tries to tell me my mistake such as I am not good cricket player in school team etc.. and he went to his home after some clash between us.
After that that he hadn’t talked to me for at least 5 days, later come one day and told me thanks for opening his eyes.
I think it is paramount because I am his best friends, telling each other mistake, the fault is part of the relationship. That time if I didn’t tell him then he never understood his misbehave.
Follow-Ups for Describe a Time When You Told Your Friend an Important Truth
Question 1:- Do you think we should tell the truth at all times?
Answer 1:- It depends, if the situation demands and serious, we should tell the truth if it’s not that serious we can white lie.
Answer 2:-I believe that it’s depending on situations, sometimes lie is also the best way like if it saves someone relationship otherwise truth is the best way. For instance, when patients have cancer or deleterious illness that time doctor not tell them the truth.
Question 2:- How do you know when others are telling the truth?
Answer 1:- We cannot know actually, but we can guess based on their tone of voice some trembles when they are lying and body language also helps like some will not look into our eyes, we can do some guessing but it is a tough job as others are saying the truth or not. If we are aware of what others are talking about, we can say they are lying.
Answer 2:- I like that person who tell truth when we heard that time it is not easy but after some time we know the meaning of truth, many people also tell us that hearing the truth is hard than a lie.
Question 3:- Do you think it is important to win a game or follow the rules.
Answer 1:- If you ask me we have to win the game by following the rules. But some people blindly target for the win and they will not follow the rules which are not sportsmanship and not good for any game in future it decreases the morality of the game.
Answer 2:- I believe that following rules and regulations are pernicious, we need to focus on the structure if we follow it as well as rules then the outcome comes in our favour or sides.
Question 4:- Sometimes, people should tell lies, do you agree?
Answer 1:- But If you ask honesty is the best policy, we should tell truth every time. But in some situations sensitive people cannot accept the truth directly in those situations we need to lie and slowly we need to explain the truth.
Answer 2:- As I said earlier it is dependent on situations, if it saves someone relationship or life then telling lie is
a better option, because the truth is hearted them.
