It’s much easier to make up a lie than to tell the truth. We all do it, yet at the same time we demand honesty we cannot always give.
But why is it so hard to say what’s on your mind? Are we simply trying to be polite, trying not to be hurtful? Or attempting to avoid embarrassment?
Dishonesty hurts much more when it comes from someone you trust. You never thought there would be any fallacy, until a deliberate twist of truth throws the relationship up in the air.
Then again I just lied to a person tonight – whom I obviously don’t trust.
