As kids, we’re told, time and again, that lying is wrong. Do you believe that’s always true? In your book, are there any exceptions?
95% of the time I think lying is wrong and should be avoided. The truth works out for the best in the end and even if it doesn’t, if you have a conscious, how satisfying is it going to be when you have sorted things out or achieved something by lying your ass off? Exactly, so if you have no moral standards or a conscious or any core values whatsoever you will be fine by lying but if you have some integrity, chances are that you will not be happy with it.
At times though you have to lie and do it for the greater good. You need to think it out; is your little lie going to do more good than harm and can you live with yourself after that? Lie! Is your lie going to help a lot of people or even one person who deserves it – lie! Can you make things better – then lie! See how it goes? You have to weigh the pros and cons. If you one lie can help people and avoid trouble, there is no harm is lie. Ofcourse all depends on the nature of the lie.
Are you lying for personal gain, to attract more money, for getting a girl / guy you fancy (and that lie is a huge part of sealing the deal), getting fame, glory, getting your way – don’t lie! Simple as that. Situations may wary slightly but in the end, if you are a good person you will know the difference. That is a quality you should try and pass on.
