When rescuing others by lying or omitting the truth, you are unintentionally blocking them from information they need. It’s as if you don’t trust in their ability to manage their own lives. People grow emotionally and psychologically through conflict, so get out of the way of others’ opportunities to learn. Also, stop placing such a huge burden on you! It’s not your job to manage other people’s emotions. Isn’t it kinder to both you and them if you’re just kindly honest?
