Does respecting someone's feelings mean protecting them from other facts that might be contrary to their feelings?

Does it mean that it would be disrespectful to tell Kayla anything negative about Dan, since she likes him?

Living in the world sometimes means you get hit with information that challenges your thoughts and beliefs.
1. Will exposing them to those facts do more harm than good?

2. Would the negative information about Daniel be something that could impact Kayla or someone she cares about?

Carefully controlling the flow of information to minimize potential damage is sometimes preferable to letting it fly around and "hit" people. And sometimes, fair or not, justified or not, the smartest thing to do is to keep one's mouth shut.

Although if everyone did that, soaps and other forms of drama would instantly cease to exist.
