Shades of the truth

"Truth should always be uttered no matter what the consequences. Nothing so degrades a man as equivocation and deceit. When I am in company with a double-dealing man -- one who has one language on his tongue and another in his heart -- I am involuntarily made to avoid him as I would a poisonous reptile." ~ President John Tyler
I am confident that most who come across this blog will have heard the 'proverb' that, if you tell the truth, you won't have to worry about forgetting anything.  I feel that even, 'little white lies' can degrade a listeners trust of the speaker.  Communication has been hard for me for as long as i can remember.  This has made things really difficult when i tell the truth.  Often, there are better ways to communicate the truth.
