I’ve been one of those people that figured, “Why tell the truth when a lie will do?”
Looking back, I can see that this way of thinking is ridiculous and just saying that I ever thought that was the way to live seems as if it might be a lie. But I lied to make myself look more important, more intelligent, more deserving to be treated as better than someone else. I lied to cover up my flaws and my weaknesses. I lied to build myself up to be something I was not.
To be honest, I still have to fight the urge to lie. Sometimes, I think a lie just might be more convenient than the truth. Other times I believe a lie might be better for someone else than the truth.
But in reality, the only good lie is the one I leave a sleeping dog.
