why didn’t Harry just lie and say he wouldn’t go back to Hogwarts
why did he feel compelled to be so completely honest to this strange elf he’d just met to the point it almost ruined his life

WELCOME BACK TO HOGWARTS
It’s officially September 1st. You know what this is going to be.
You didn’t get your Hogwarts letter? No problem! It probably just got lost in the mail, or the owl that was supposed to deliver it got distracted, happens all the time. We apologize for any inconvenience and are happy to announce that you are accepted to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry!
And here is your ticket!
HARRY POTTER HISTORY MEME: three historical wizards [2/3] → Gellert GrindelwaldGellert Grindelwald (c. 1882-1998) was considered one of the most powerful Dark Wizards of all time, second only to Tom Marvolo Riddle. He was educated at the Durmstrang Institute, a school famous for its tolerance of the Dark Arts. In 1945, at the height of his powers, he was confronted by his old friend, Albus Dumbledore, and defeated in a legendary duel. He was incarcerated at Nurmengard Prison until his death at the hands of Lord Voldemort fifty-three years later.
It’s like in the great stories. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger, they were. And sometimes you didn’t want to know the end. Because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened? But in the end, it’s only a passing thing, this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come. And when the sun shines it will shine out the clearer. Those were the stories that stayed with you. That meant something, even if you were too small to understand why. But I think I do understand. I know now. Folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back, only they didn’t. They kept going. Because they were holding on to something.”

I’ve also modified my parents’ memories so that they’re convinced they’re really called Wendell and Monica Wilkins, and that their life’s ambition is to move to Australia, which they have now done. That’s to make it more difficult for Voldemort to track them down and interrogate them about me – or you, because unfortunately, I’ve told them quite a bit about you. Assuming I survive our hunt for the Horcruxes, I’ll find Mum and Dad and lift the enchantment. If I don’t – well, I think I’ve cast a good enough charm to keep them safe and happy. Wendell and Monica Wilkins don’t know that they’ve got a daughter, you see.
