how often I am the hypocrite in the name of keeping the peace in the name of not wanting to offend in the name of avoiding conflict is honesty always black and white? is there no little grey area? is there no room for twisting? there can be no place for hypocrisy there is a fine line between being honest and being a hypocrite is a little white lie a sin? can such a thing even exist? is it fair to mislead someone if the lie is close enough to the truth (from a certain point of view) so as to be indistinguishable? which holds more value? do we really want unabashed honesty when it will only serve to deflate our too-sensitive egos? we are all living a lie to a certain extent (some more so than others, of course) and our lives are always in danger of being punctured by the harsh light of truth do we play along, or do we have an obligation to serve the greater truth regardless of what...oh, wait... ...my coffee is finally ready.
