Truth is a descent into the abyss.
Telling the truth, and I like the truth, is the opposite of being kind...
...while I speak about my subjective perception of some truisms in general terms I avoid telling the truth to older people children or slower people.
Fun fact, human beings lie on average 200 times a day. Mostly blank lies out of good intentions, that is to say, kindness!
"Are you feeling well dear? Yes, I am good thank you!"
"What are you thinking about? Nothing important, nevermind!"
"Are you lying to me? No of course not, where did you get such idea?"
Cicerone be kind!
