Should I lie to make someone feel better
There can be many sides/answers/angles to this question but sometimes it’s a “Yes” & sometimes it’s a “No”.
# Just showing a Rosy picture to someone, just because you respect that person. It’s a No. You may unintentionally create an unwanted virtual world around and this may end up making the person complacent.
# Say Yes when you know that this “Lie” will make the person move out of his/her dilemma provided no strings get attached; strings that might create problems in the future.
So basically, it’s all a situation based judgement. Rules are made so that there there is no chaos/anarchy but then sometimes rules should be broken for the sake of greater good.
