Always telling the truth

Some people think that always telling the truth is not the most important consideration in any relationship between people; however, I agree with the statement that always telling the truth gives positive impact on any relationship between people for the following reasons.

First of all, telling lies causes people many troubles. To give an example, when I was a freshman student in Tokyo University, a national university in Japan, in 2009, I usually played with Kenji,one of my best friends. One day, a girl whom I loved invited me to her home party. However, on the day when the home party was held, I had a plan to play with Kenji. Since I wanted to go to the home party, I told a lie to Kenji and I cancelled the plan to play with him. After I went to the party, Kenji found out my lie and was angry with me. After that, I broke up with Kenji and spent hard time to get recover the relationship with Kenji. As the example shows, telling lies causes people many troubles.

Second, by telling the truth to friends, they regard us as being honest. To give an example, when I was a junior high school student, I always told the truth to my friends. One of my friends named Kenichi was usually told lies to his friends. One day, I and Kenichi forgot to do homework and our teacher was angry with us. Our teacher asked us the reason why we forgot to do homework. While I honestly answered, Kenichi told a lie that he was so busy because of hie family’s problem. At that time, the teacher believed him and scolded only me. After that, the teacher realized that Kenichi told a lie. Eventually, he lost the reliability from the teacher and spent hard time for the rest of the school days.

In conclusion, always telling the truth gives positive impact on any relationship between people.
