I suppose the question is in the title.
I often find myself in situations where another person wants me to tell them everthing about a particular tsituation. and I don’t particularly feel like doing that. or there are aspects of the situation that will just make them angry and things they don’t need to know.
so I try to answer questions as specifically as possible, in order to leave out a good chunk of detail.
I still feel like I’m being dishonest though for some reason.
I have no idea why I always feel like I need to give the whole blunt, story to everyone though.
like how the friends that my mom doen’st like contacted me a couple weeks ago asking for my sports jersey back. but she asked me if he contacted me to wish me merry Christmas, which he hadn’t so I said he didn’t text me to wish me merry Christmas, which is true, but I know that she wants to know if he had contacted me at all. but if I tell her, she’ll just get angry, she already wanted me to change my phone number.
or my friends who are dating, if they have a fight and they both confide in me, they then always want to know what the other one said, which is uaully information I’d rather not repeat since it’s usually unflattering and generally said out of anger and frustration anyways.
so is it a sin for me to not mention parts of things, even if I know what the othe person is looking for and wants to know?
