Amendments as before in CAPITALS:
|Do you agree or disagree with the following statement?
Always telling the truth is the most important consideration in any relationship.
A Relationship is very delicate issue.Some people argue ABOUT whether to be honest in it by always telling the truth or to keep SOME THINGS under wraps. I agree that always telling the truth is not necessary for a relationship to survive
Any relationship works on trust, whichever the area may be. Smooth running of any relationSHIP depends on the sincerity between the persons engaged in a commitment .For example if we look at the employer employee bond/AGREEMENT, if a employee leaves a job within A few months of joining just for the sake of perks offered by the competitor, this breach will cause losSes to THE company in terms of time consumed in training, money and energy invested
Disclosing all the details is not a good decision to do most of the time. If hiding THE truth IS for some good cause I feel it is not wrong, if it can provide solace to ANother. For example if a child is suffering from some sort of cancer ,parents would feel THEY HAD to cheer their kid UP in his remaining days left, by concealing the facts.
I feel if two people are in some relationSHIP like marriage, its/IT'S better to screen/CONCEAL (the) past memories then/THAN to disclose it/THEM and break the bond for ever.For example if a husband had some bad past memories ,and if his present is hale and hearty then why (to) tell the truth and break the relationsHIP,if it's possible to hide it/THEM?
As we can see there are many aspects to/IN this argument where some always feel THEY HAVE to be loyal and not to offend the other person. But I feel its essential to hide (the) reality/IF IT'S DONE FOR SOME GOOD REASON for some good cause.
