And Not Think About Motives
For those who come looking for a short, thoughtful read, a blogging life discussion, or a way to gradually ease back into the week. I offer this bloggy life question. . . .
You had a casual conversation with a group of friends about telling the truth. All of you agreed that truth is important to a relationship.
Then the question of the middle ground came up.
Someone asked, “What do you do when someone asks your opinion of their blog, and you think that it’s really bad?”
One of your friends answers, “Hey that’s easy, you tell the truth and make it sound like a lie. You talk with exaggeration while smiling, and say something like, ‘Ooh your writing is SO incredibly boring and below level, that it makes even you want to think of 1,000 ways to die.’ Then you laugh and smile. It’s the truth, but the person won’t believe you. The question is over and you’re safe again.”
Another friend says, “That’s deception. It’s the same as a lie.”
How do you respond?
