18. What she doesn’t know won’t hurt her

Have you ever wondered

If it is always necessary

To tell the truth, the whole truth?

If you have found out some facts

That could hurt a friend

Or disrupt her life forever.

Do you still divulge the truth?

Or spare her anguish, thinking :

“What she doesn’t know won’t hurt her!”

  1. I’m going to (re) use that question for SYW one time soon. It’s one of ‘those’ questions that is unanswerable. To me? I’d tell them, DEPENDING on the circumstances. I was in the dark for a long time about someone once, and I wouldn’t wish that on anyone. It would have been far better to know, than to be mis-led.
