Finding the truth in todays society is like trying to find Julia Roberts in a whore house! The odds are probably with finding Julia! The truth is that lying has just become an acceptable truth! Lies are told all day, every day, for a multitude of reasons those telling the lies use as justification.
“I didn’t want to hurt their feelings”. Truth is, the lie probably hurt them more than the truth because when the truth finally comes out, and it always does, the person you didn’t want to hurt will lose their trust in you. That will hurt more than what you were hiding in the first place!
“I was protecting so and so”. You can never protect someone by hiding things for them! Again, the truth will come out, and the longer you help someone avoid their responsibilities, the harder it will be for them to face up to reality when it slaps them in the face.
“I was to embarrassed”. I have had my share of moments I am ashamed of, and I know I have lied a time or two to avoid further embarrassment. Again, we are just hiding from reality and responsibility. The truth will come home to roost in the end. You may as well face it as it comes rather than stacking a pile of lies that will eventually crumble and create a bigger mess to clean up.
Those were some of the benign reasons for lying. There are, of course, those evil mother-fuckers who lie simply to get over on people. Be it, making a sale by promising that which is never delivered, disguising a true agenda, bait and switch, sales tactics, politics, or just simple pleasure gained by being a piece of shit! Lying is such an accepted part of our reality, that it doesn’t appear to be frowned upon in many circles. In fact, in some cases it is rewarded! There are those who are comfortable believing the comforting lies, I am not one! Bring on the truth bitches! Even if it hurts!
