Secrets and Lies

I just told my sister a lie and I'm not feeling good about that...

Ok so it's not as bad that - really I refused to answer her questions as to what had been discussed at a meeting and who was present, because if I had answered then I would have to tell a lie.

And all to protect the confidentiality of a sensitive enquiry I am dealing with for a club that we both belong to.

I don't know if it was right or wrong, choosing something else over family, but it certainly isn't the best feeling in the world

I'm not encouraging lying but sometimes you just have no choice

I think you should have told her that you didn't feel comfortable discussing the meeting, as you would rather not lie to her.

Bye everyone, it was a blast

Family shouldn't insist on putting you in that position in the first place, sir. Rest easy.

You did what you thought was right at the time. You can always go back and rectify it. Tell you lied to her, aplogize for doing so and then politely ask her to let the subject go. If that sort of thing would make you feel better. If not, then don't and live with it as is. Mac
