“How would your relationships change if you resolved never to lie again? What truths might suddenly come into view in your life? What kind of person would you become? And how might you change the people around you? It is worth finding out.” Sam Harris
Unfortunately, it is human to err, and I think, it is human to lie. If we can lie and get through something a bit easier, we are going to lie. We will do anything to make things easier for ourselves. I wanted to make a resolution not to lie to my parents anymore. I do not really lie that often, but I do lie occasionally to my parents, and that is only wrt the guys I am dating. They do not like to hear of it, and I do not like to speak of it to them.
So we kind of have an agreement, where they pretend I am still a virgin and single, and I pretend the same. Of course, when I actually do like a guy a lot, and want them to meet him, that will be a problem, I guess, we shall think about that issue when it comes up. It hasn’t yet. So no worries on that.
But can you imagine if I told them every time I was going to go on a date, or sleep with someone. Yikes! I am getting heart palpitations just thinking of it. I cannot imagine. And I hope it never comes to complete honesty on that aspect. It would result in my already tainted reputation being tainted even further.
