Resolve not to lie to anyone 2day.

Resolve not to lie to anyone 2day.SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend
Lying is so easy! It's almost like breathing to some people. Why? Because it gets us out of sticky situations and truth be told it- gets us into lots of sticky situations and can be detrimental to our image.

I was once a habitual liar. And now I hate lying. I do and when I tell a lie I feel awful, I feel like I am the biggest loser on earth because, I've discovered that there's no value in lying. The smallest lie, no matter how white anyone can try to paint it- will eventually come back and bite you in the leg. Every lie we tell, ultimately stems from one thing- convenience. Because it wouldn't be convenient for us to tell the truth about a particular situation, we lie- WE don't want to be uncomfortable. The main focus with lies is on us- on how telling the truth will affect us. And sometimes YES we lie to protect other people.

But how did we get into the state we're in where lying is acceptable- where deception is fine? It's not. How did we get to a stage in our relationships and daily dealings where the truth is wrong and lies are best? That's not the way it should be. We should all live lives of integrity- because all it takes is one lie being found out to destroy trust. And that trust can't be won back easily and even if it is won back, it will still be stained with the memory of a past lie.

Even if we lie to protect other people- does lying really protect them? How about when they find out that we've deceived them? Will they now trust us to protect them? What kind of people do you want to be in a relationship with? The kind of people who will lie to make you feel better or ok and then later on the situation, (whatever it may be) comes back to haunt you and you wish they'd just told you the truth straight up.

Would you like someone to lie to you? Would you want someone to hide something from you? Because, that's the main reason for lying- to hide something from someone. Can you trust someone who hides things from you? I can't. If you have to say something painful to someone- then find a gentle way of saying what needs to be said- but don't lie. It WILL come back to haunt you some day.

Resolve2day not to lie to anyone. Trust me, you’ll feel like a much better person at the end of this day.
