Is it ever okay to lie? In which circumstances?

Is It Okay to Lie?

It is okay to lie in some reasons. First, lie to save other feeling. We sometimes have to lie because we don't want other to worry about us. Also, we don't want to hurt other. Therefore, we sometimes should not tell the truth. For example, when we don't live with our parents, we usually call them. Also, when we call them, they usually like to ask us about our health. We should tell them that we are fine although we sometimes really get sick because we don't want they to worry. Second, Lie to help ourselves. We are not selfish, but we lie because we don't want to get some troubles. We want to avoid from the problems. However, we should make sure that we don't hurt other or make other to get some bad effect because we lie. For instance, we sometimes come to class late. We often tell the teacher that we face a lot of traffic jam even though we oversleep. Since we don't want to have a problem. However, we can lie to help ourselves, but it is going to be okay in sometime not several times. We should improve ourselves. Therefore, we don't need to lie about this problem again. Finally, lie to help other. We really care about other, so we sometimes lie to help them. For example, when our friend absent, we usually tell the teacher that they get sick, or they have the important thing to do. However, this kind of lie is not good in some situations because we may help people who make guilty become guiltlessness. Moreover, they may make same guilty again because they don't get any punishment. If we lie to help other that do in wrong way, we should tell them that don't do it again. Also, we should not lie to help them become guiltlessness more than one time. Indeed, there are many situations that no problem to lie.
