    I Think People Are Naturall...

    I think people are naturally good and want to be honest, but there are simply times when you can't be.  Such as when you are asked a question where telling the truth would just hurt the other person.

    Every instinct is telling me to do that. But it's exactly what I can't do. Hearing how I feel is just going to push him further away. I can't stand it
