Is preventing a person from knowing the truth about something important considered a LIE? Would it make a difference whether the person has the right to know of the truth or not? Either way, it is a lie is it not? And no, I'm not talking about Christmas presents. LoL! Obviously you are suppose to hide and lie about the presents so that the surprise, stays as a surprise.
The funny thing about TRUST and LIE is that you cannot have both. If you want to have trust, you gotta kick the lie out. If you want the lie, there is no trust to keep. Relationships cannot grow or have a chance of becoming happy if there's no trust. Lying to anyone is cup full of bullshit.
