I pride myself on being an honest person. I am not perfect by any means and I of course do tell the occasional "white" lie. I am human. It happens. But I have learned that it is far easier to tell the truth and deal with what may come along with that good or bad, than it is to tell a lie. Because we all know that one lie leads to another that leads to yet another. I have a bad memory. I can't do it.
So who are we really protecting with all of our lies? Are we so selfish that we are more concerned with protecting ourselves with the lies we tell, then helping those who look for our honesty? Does the liar themselves benefit in anyway from lying to someone? Did our parents really know what they were talking about when they said that telling the truth would make us feel better?
