There aren’t many things that will make me upset. I’m not easily angered. There is, however, one thing that will make me instantly apprehensive of someone and that is lying. I’m not a fan of liars. I think people who believe lying doesn’t hurt anyone are absolutely wrong. Lying is one of the absolute worst things you can do. The entire point of a lie is to intentionally deceive someone. How can that bring any good out of any kind of relationship? There are people who will defend white lies. I know there are somethings you don’t say, things that are difficult to say, and bits that you shouldn’t say at all. I can understand not telling a person who is sick that they look sick. There are ways around these types of situations. You don’t necessarily need to deceive anyone.
I’ve met people who constantly lie about everything. I don’t know why. I don’t understand why, but they do. Everything they say is a farce and they genuinely believe that these lies are credible. I’ve had people change their story and lie about the dumbest things like favorite flower or things they like. Why lie about the things you like? Why lie at all?
Did You Know?
If you lie constantly, people will find it very difficult to trust you. It will make building lasting relationships with people pretty darn impossible. Don’t exaggerate the truth. Don’t claim to be someone you aren’t. Don’t claim to have things you do not. If someone is genuinely interested in you as a person and all you do is lie to them, that individual will soon realize that having a friendship with you is impossible because you are not only lying to them but you are incessantly lying to yourself. In addition, you’ll be surprised how damaging lies can be to your person. It not only affects the people around you but it also affects who you are inside. Please, please, please take care of who you are. Be proud of what you are and what you’ve accomplished. There is no need to lie in order to build friendships there is an absolute need for honesty.
Be honest in everything you do. There is nothing wrong with being who you are. Speak your truth. Do not tarnish yourself with lies.
