Facing the Truth

Summary: Should people always tell the truth, or it is sometimes better to lie? Some people prefer to hide themselves behind a wall of lies rather than face the truth and deal with it. It is an incontestable fact that truth hurts, but without it people can never create trustful relationships or reach real happiness. This can be observed in families' relationships. Every family has secrets that remain hidden somewhere in the deepest drawers; secrets that people keep in order to protect themselves, or their beloveds. Such secrets, however, may ruin the trust, communication, and love among the members of these families. In the novel the curiosity incident of the dog in the night-time and the film Secrets and Lies, Mark Haddon and Mike Leigh examine secrets and lies in the Boone and Parley families. In these works, real happiness comes when characters face the painful truth.
