TOEFL Essay Topic 704 - Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? Always telling the truth is the most important considertion in any relationship between people.
Telling the Truth
I certainly agree with this statement. However, in situations, it may happen otherwise. It depends more on one’s mental makeup and the opinion changes because of the kind of relationship he/she may have with people. If one wants a relation where he/she wants to be always in the good books of another person, he/she pretends to behave friendly and says and do things favorable to the other person. If, otherwise, he/she takes care of the other friend, he has to be himself and also correct the other person when he/she is wrong.
Truth is bitter. Let us try to explain with an example. say, our friend smokes. Everybody knows smoking is injurious to the health. If you are a person who just wants to be in the good books, you will appreciate his habits. You may comment on the smoker’s style of smoking. You may say, how smoking a cigarette reflects his attitude, like he looks cool, he looks manly and his style is good. You may dislike the smell, but you just be in that place, just because you don’t want to hurt him. By this, you actually don’t care for the person. Whereas, otherwise, you seriously care for the person. You will say that the behavior is bad and you will try to make him understand how smoking will actually affect him and you. It is not only a waste of money, but it is detrimental to his health also. You will also try to educate him how passive smokers are put to risk being with a smoker.
It is always better to be yourself and tell the truth in relation with people rather than pretending to be in good relationship. It is because, he/she who considers you a friend, will love you for what you are and not for what you will be or how you will react to please him/her. He will also consider your companionship because you always make him understand what is good and bad. He will also love you for what he is when he is with you.
