영국시험관 7.0-9.0 모범답안
This question reminds me of a time that I concealed the truth from one of my childhood friends. My friend and I grew up together and went to the same university. In fact, he was more like a family member because both our parents knew one another extensively.
One day, while at school, I received a call from one of my friend’s cousins saying his grandma had passed away.
My friend was fond of his granny and would always talk about her. I was quite worried and didn’t know how to break the sad news to my friend.
After much thought, I decided to make up a story. I told my friend that his granny was critically ill and that it would be a great idea for him to visit their family home immediately.
Actually, the main reason why I told a white lie was because my friend’s grandma was his favourite family member and I didn’t want him to be shocked upon hearing the sad news from me. Besides that, the distance he had to cover to get to his family home was quite long and I thought it would be dangerous/risky for him to drive or travel while feeling devastated/down in the dumps.
This is all I have to say about a time I told a white lie to a friend.
Do you think mutual trust between friends is important?
Absolutely. In fact, it’s a must .Being able to have trust and confidence in your friend is one of the most important requirements of a strong relationship because true friendship means you are able to count on one another. Part of caring for a friend is honouring what they tell you, no matter the significance, with confidentiality and respect. A true friend should never laugh or mock, but listen with open ears and offer advice if asked. My dad used to tell me that friendship built on trust will thrive regardless of the ups and downs.
Do you think people need to tell the truth all the time?
Well, I think honesty is the best policy for a couple of reasons. First, telling the truth brings you peace of mind and is a sign of love. Secondly, lies could lead to broken trust which might never be fully regained. As they say, it’s easier to tell the truth than lie. However, there are a few situations when you can tell a white lie. For instance, if someone offers you a meal and you don't like the taste, it would be better to say that you like it, even though you don't. This is just being polite as sometimes the truth can hurt someone.
