People lie for many reasons. To hide their guilt, to protect someone, not to hurt someone’s feelings, not to cause a fight.
I’ve been lied to a lot of times by many people. Mostly by those who didn’t care about my feelings nor being fair to me. So I started thinking about my lies.
I know how to lie and how to make everyone believe it, but I don’t like to do it. Lying is stressful and requires next lies for a case to cover the previous one. What about if I forget about my lie and someone catches me on it? It won’t be a nice situation for both sides.
Every lie, sooner or later, comes out. So what for lying? I believe it’s better to say the truth and deal with consequences instead of lying and stressing yourself and get into more trouble.
But is it always good? Sometimes not telling the truth will save someone else from being hurt or sad. Sometimes lying is bad and sometimes is good? It’s a little bit confusing.
If someone doesn’t ask me about something I don’t say it myself if it’s not necessary. Is it lying? I don’t think so. Some information is better to be kept only for myself.
I think lying can be bad or good depending on situation. But from the other side we can lie saying we do it not to hurt someone’s feelings. There is a thin line between good and bad lying and this is needed not to cross the ‘good side’ line.
What “white” lie have you used?
