Talk about a time when you told your friend an important truth
- Who your friend is?
- What the truth was?
- What your friend’s reaction was?
- why it was important for you to tell the truth to your friend?
Instinctively, we tend to tell a white lie in our lives to avoid conflicts. However, sometimes it becomes necessary, to tell the truth regardless of the consequence. Last year I had to face up to such a situation that I had no option but to reveal the truth to my friend, Khoa, my childhood friend. We have studied together for ten years up to now. On one day, we realized that in order to move our career towards an impressive growth trajectory,
We opted for IT engineering as a career. We both prepared for an interview in one of the renowned IT companies of our nation. Luckily, I had passed all the rounds of interviews and managed to grab the offer letter. But to Khoa’s dismay, he failed to clear the technical round of interview. Also, his family was going through a severe financial crunch, which made him hardly concentrate on the interview. Therefore, I had used my contacts to find a job for him and arranged his interview in another reputed company.
But again, he failed. Seeing his plight, I was afraid of the guilt of telling him the truth. So I had told him that the result of his interview would be announced next month. But later on, I realized that I was guilty of not telling him the status quo since he was passing his days under the false ray of hope. Hence, I decided to tell him the truth. Finally, on his birthday, I told him the exact feedback of his interview. He was in shock and cried a lot. Nonetheless, he took this failure as a motive and finally managed to find a plum job with an organization of repute.
There were not too many incidents that happened in my life where I have had to keep my secret within myself. After all, it’s a secret, so it should be like a secret. However, I want to describe an incident when I told one of me about a dark secret.
Actually, he is one of my friends in my college and whose name is Mohit and he is from Sonipat. So, the scenario happened when I was somewhere around 8 or 9 years of age when I stole the money from a ping pong container. It is usually made of clay.
Actually, the money which I was stealing was mine. But the way I narrated the story to my friend was amazing as I was putting certain unfortunate Incidents as I was telling that my mom came and seen me while stealing, and I punished a lot. Actually, we were in one year of college, and we were narrating our childhood memories.
Basically, we were describing our story as we had the biggest mistakes in the child. When the narrating of our story ended, we laughed a lot.
Follow-ups of Talk About 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:- Not really, it depends on situations, since some truth may hurt from the inside out of the person, especially doctors’ diagnosis. To describe, when a patient contact with cancer, it is wiser for a doctor to tell a white lie about their symptoms and disease by advising them to look on the brighter side.
Answer 2:- No, not at all, the reason being, as I mentioned, it’s a secret. However, we might tell to the person whom we might trust, like our companion or brother or sister.
Question 2:- How do you know when others are telling the truth?
Answer 1:- I mostly watch the movement of their eyes since this is the most obvious evidence in psychology to identify one is telling a lie or not. To say more precisely, if the eyeballs are pulled to the left top side, they may tell a lie, and if the eyeballs are pulled to the other side, they are trying to remember something.
Answer 2:- I think when someone tells the trust, their emotions are quite different. He or she is telling with full confidence. However, we could easily justify when someone is telling the truth as his tone will fluctuate while telling or describing the things.
Question 3:- Do you think it is important to win the game or follow the rules?
Answer 1:- Well, as the man of sportsmanship, I always take fairness the priority over other qualities regardless of the victory of the game. Because winning the match without this quality is meaningless, and somehow, the winning team can be the eyesore of the audience.
Answer 2:- I think both are quite interdependent on each other; without following the rules, you will be disqualified from the game. So, it’s better to just follow the rules and try to give full effort to win the game.
Question 4:- Sometimes, people should tell lies. Do you agree?
Answer 1:- I can’t agree with this more, sometimes lying may be more important than the hurting truth. For example, once I broke the vase when I was playing football in the garden, I totally blamed a cat for doing that. And I am really regretful for that, but it was such an unprecedented milestone that I knew how to tell a lie.
Answer 2:- Yes, sometimes people tell a lie to save someone, as I have told too many lies to save my friend. I remember when we had a party, and we reached home at late night. I told his mom that we had a group study.
