  1. This is such an interesting topic to brainstorm on! We tell lies I guess cause we….can???😈😂

    Seriously though, there’s that pretty lame line we often reel out to justify ourselves! You know, that ‘What you don’t know will not hurt you; ignorance is bliss’, infamous line! But, who are we really kidding?! Once a lie’s told, a vicious circle’s set into motion as more lies are birthed and that can only pan out for sooo long before the dots plain refuse to add up and we slip up! Only then will it dawn on us that we’ve been had! Yikes! 😂😂

    The truth is effortless, so much so that we needn’t think ’bout it! Bitter and will make one less popular but what’s popularity to being free and enjoying real lasting peace and tranquility?! A clear conscience that will make one get a goodnight’s sleep?! 😊😄

    Thanks for sharing Don, great post! 👍👍

  2. In my opinion, lying is actually a act of remorse. You lie, just because you don’t want to get shelling from everyone esle. Hence, lying will actually stabilize the situation by giving the person a false information, eruption of anger and hatred will be prevented.

  4. Politicians lie to get elected, then they lie to get reelected, so they can become part of the permanent political elite. Men and women lie to each other because they believe that’s what their partners want to hear, and that the truth will destroy their relationship. People lie to avoid hurting others’ feelings. We are all bundles of deceit!

  5. Ultimately, because of a lack in education on the importance of truthfulness as the foundation of all human virtues–because if you can’t see the truth of who you are, then how can you ever hope to change yourself for the better?

  6. All people lie, some more than others. Mankind is made up of sinners exclusively. Some believe mankind is innately good. We’re not. We innately sinful. We’re born that way. Just watching children it is readily seen. That’s why we needed a Savior, to forgive our sins and sinfulness.

  7. Because they are pathological? They can’t tell the difference between a lie and the truth? To save face? Which is very vain of the person! (Although when one is caught they must have a red face with embarrassment!) I believe in TOTAL honesty! Even if it makes me look bad!

  8. That’s a good question. Uhmmm… It depends on different situations. Sometimes people use it to manipulate others, in other cases it is used not to hurt others and also in order to create fantasy, hope, ilussion for something or someone like papa noel, christmas, in other cultures (spanish culture for example), “el ratoncito perez”, “los tres reyes magos” or olentzero (in basque culture).

  9. Lying is a weakness, because it represents the easy way out – the truth is often much harsher to deal with. Lying is often avoidance. Lying can buy time. Lying can disguise the truth (but only temporarily). Lying can arise out of insecurity. (Yes, insecurity stems from fear).
