This week’s Query is about telling lies. And no, I wasn’t asking for pointers! In fact, I already know how to lie all too well, but asking others about their lying habits really made me pay attention to mine.
I find that I don’t lie as a general habit – a good thing to realize about myself. The bad thing? I’ve recently started telling “sugar-coating” lies. Just a bit of a fib to make the bad news sound better.
Lying gets easier each time you do it, like a lot of bad habits. I’m glad I asked this question, because I don’t want to get into any kind of lying habit, even if it’s only told to make the medicine go down easier. So, I caught myself doing this and I stopped. I find that I don’t really have to sugar coat (lie about) the bad news after all, and I feel better for having been honest.
