…The truth is harder to explain
…People don’t accept the truth
…It’s just easier that way
The guilt that subsequently takes place after a lie has been told is the part I hate most. I don’t want to face it because I don’t know if my lie has been taken as truth for the people I’ve told it to or if I’ve become known as a liar. Either way, I am left with a terrible feeling in my gut. Knowing this, why must I still tell a lie? I just find it to be better than telling the truth. Ridiculous I know, but with a lie I’m trying to mask the truth and deter the opinions of what they think of me if the truth comes out.
Trying to make myself feel better about doing something I know well is not good.
