"Some people lie so they don't get caught doing something they shouldn't. Others lie to
gain power, control, and position. If I do lie, the difference is I lie for a reason.
When my mother was ill with cancer, I couldn't tell her she was going to die, so I lied.
When my child was going to have her first vaccinations, she asked me if it would hurt. I lied.
When my ten year old asked if Santa Claus was real. I sort of lied.
When my husband said he stopped gambling, he lied to me.
We all lie, but the difference is not to do it too often. For if you lie too much, trust begins to
fade and you will soon find others will be more likely to lie to your face than behind your back. It's easier to be truthful. You don't have to remember what you lied about." ©A.Nation
