Lying is saying something with the intent of creating a false belief or impression. It’s an attempt to get someone to believe something that is not true. Truth becomes a feared enemy of the liar. It’s a sick and tragic cycle that doesn’t ever have a happy ending. It’s so easy for people to tell lie after lie after lie, but when they fall deeper into their tangled web of lies they almost always find themselves in an even worse situation. It’s so much better to tell the truth, rather than try to lie your way back to the truth. Don’t get yourself caught up in lies because in the end they will hurt you. Lying may seem simple and harmless at first, but just like any addiction, you’ll soon find yourself trapped and entangled more than you could have ever imagined.
If you think or feel that you are being betrayed/lied to, all you need to do is dig deeper. For example ask their other friends and family. You will then find out the truth by piecing things together. The result might shock you.
Some people on the other hand do not want to know the truth. They can’t handle the truth and want to avoid it. Those are the type of people that liars pray on and take advantage of.
I believe that it is better to tell the truth than a lie. I believe it is better to be free than to be a slave. And I believe it is better to know than to be ignorant. – H. L. Mencken
A single lie destroys a whole reputation of integrity. – Baltasar Gracian
I love listening to lies when I know the truth.
The big problem with lying is that it becomes an addiction.
Hurt me with the truth but never comfort me with a lie.
Never lie to someone who trusts you and never trust someone that lies to you. – Deanna Wadsworth

A truth that’s told with bad intent Beats all the lies you can invent. – William Blake, Auguries of Innocence
