Lies

The lesson I learned…


If it will protect you, it’s ok to lie.


If it will shield you from an uncomfortable situation, lie.

If it will keep you from not appearing perfect, lie.

If it will save you from having to take responsibility for something, lie.

If it will show you in a better light, lie.

If it will prevent an argument, lie.

If it will keep someone at bay, lie.

If it will prove your point, lie.


When I say “lie,” I generally mean stretching the truth, a small omission, a misremembering, storytelling, forgetfulness, denial. Something mild enough to be thought
