Sample Answer of Describe a Time When You Told Your Friend an Important Truth
There are too many people who say in their life some of them are too big that one cannot face anyone in their life. I also end up with one of such lies. I told this lie to my friend Simran because she is one of my best friends and I could trust her with everything.
Once I had gone for a job interview and my other friends wanted to know about the result whether I got the job or not so they can have a party. At that time, I was financially incapable of giving them a party, so I lied that I got rejected.
My friend was first very angry and yelled at me as trust is the building of every relationship, but when I told her the reason for this, she understood everything. It was important for me to tell the truth to at least one of them, and I chose her as I knew she would be the one who will not misunderstand me.
