I won't lie...
That's a yes 😂
Good answer 👍👍
Thanks. I'm glad it made sense.
Well said.. and that's where the fine line
Thank you :)
But if their secrets that would affect the partner that is different
Very good points 👍 That's where the fine line comes in
Yes. So it's not not about lying as much as being deceptive. Unless of course, you are actually lying
I don't have a secret.. I'm an open book
You have secrets because everyone finds you interesting, if the writing was bold and no one was licking their finger to turn the page got to get to the next chapter, no one would be interested in reading, the other idea I should express is that sometimes secrets are important, because they are valuable or dangerous, maybe sentimental, your mum might have had the best fried chicken recipe, but you are not going to share it with Daphne down the street, because she is not part of your family, if Daphne is doing the cooking the rest of the neighbourhood won't need your restaurant.
I understand what you mean
But sometimes that secret hurts the child more when they find out the truth
True enough, however the original question was "Is there a fine line between secrets and lies or do you think they're one and the same?" Not do lies hurt others?
Butt the fine line is cause both can be deceptive and both hurt when it comes out
But what if it involves keeping a secret your partner has a right to know? Then at that point isn't it one and the same?
If they ask, then you’re not guilty of keeping the secret UNLESS it involves a life/death/healthscare situation
Yeah this is one that can have so many variables.. Like what the secret is and why they feel the need to keep it.. But if it's to deceive or to hold back wrong doing, I agree it's one and the same
100% agree - I think that would be the differentiating criteria
Great question 👍
Thanks.. but if you keep a secret with the intention of deceiving that person, at that point aren't they one and the same?
Not necessarily as lying is verbal, you can't lie if you don't say anything. Deceiving someone doesn't always mean they're lying as they could be secretly planning to do something to hurt you emotionally but they don't tell anyone, that's just being secretive which isn't lying. Hope this clears it up 🙂
Oh I'm there with you 💯
That can be true
Guess depends on the secret, some are bad
Well yeah agree there specially when we don't always know everything about a situation or a person like we think we do 🤷🏼♀️
It's not my buisness to tell I feel.🙂
Great answer, think I agree here
Guess that depends on one's idea of the truth tho, their truth or THE truth
Nice answer! That's true
Ha... so naughty
But sometimes secrets can as well
NOT telling a secret to your lover CAN or CANNOT be considered a lie. I consider it a lie but some people do not.
Well said.. I don't know I could go back and forth on this one... Guess depends on the secret and why they feel they have to keep it secret,... But if it's too decide someone, then that's just as wrong, bad as a lie
Life can sure be confusing sometimes
They can be
Yeah I think that's the way I lean
Ah see yes 💯If it's because you know that's something that would change an outcome or decision it's still deceiving someone...
Yes not that I'm a bible thumper I believe you are correct
If I may complement you on explaining things with such clairety
But what if it's too deceive them, or it's something they do have a right to know as your partner?
If you don't tell someone something, it's not lying.
