Thoughtful Question #15

I think it is most definitely possible. From personal experience... it is definitely possible. Hiding things from people is probably a good idea, most of the time. But you really have to pick your time right. Some things are better when it's out in the open. Some things are too important to lie about.

I asked Gerhard if his dear friend Keisha was really a friend and nothing else, and he said yes. Lying straight to my face. I guess it's not complete silence but it's also not telling the truth. He kept what they had a secret. He kept quiet about it.

Silence is a lie. Yes. But sometimes silence is golden. There are (obviously) some things some people don't have to know. It might hurt them, offend them, confuse them or make them angry. Most probably the latter. But there is a time and a place for everything.

What do you reckon?
