I can't pin this enough. Sucks to think you are always there for certain people..then when you need someone to be there for you..their not there. But your a mean person when you do the same back to them. Damned if you do..damned if you don't
The truth, no matter how painful, is ALWAYS the right thing. When you lie and hide things, you lose respect. It doesn't reflect negatively on the person trusting you, but solely falls on your shoulders for taking advantage of the person trusting you. Honesty is an admirable quality many don't poses.
