Lying

Is it ever okay to lie? I try really hard to be truthful but today a coworker asked me a question to which I knew the true answer would be very upsetting. The last time I answered truthfully on the issue my coworker went into a tailspin, had to leave work and ended up on depression medication. So... First I evaded. She pushed. I lied. And I feel guilty even though I think it was the right thing to do.

  1. Hey there, being married to a cop that topic has come up many times and the one question that I think of is "Which is better; a criminal on the streets because the cop was truthful or that same criminal behind bars because the cop lied?" Sometimes a lie is certainly in order. I don't condone lying at all, but sometimes it's more loving to lie than to tell the truth which sounds like what happened in your case.
