Do you know that there is such thing as “lie by omission”?

Apparently there is! I have always thought that as long as you do not tell things that are not true, you are not lying and that by keeping quiet about things that are true, does not make you a liar! I have always thought that omission will save me from having to lie. I mean, I do not lie by telling things that are not true… (often to avoid telling things am not supposed to tell and to avoid offending people’s feelings). Well, guess what, I had been wrong!

My hope is, from now onwards, when there are information I would have to omit (for reasons such as “it is not mine to tell”, etc, etc…), people will understand if I say I cannot say, instead of just the usual silence… Peace y’all. Love more. Hate less.
