We all have lied to others and even to ourselves at least once till date. Those who say, “I never lie” are also lying. If you lie to someone and you make yourself feel good because what you said is a white lie, don’t be happy because a lie is a lie. I am not telling you not to lie. I am just holding the mirror in front of you to make you realize that you lie. I lie too, and I am agreeing to it! We all do. There are some hypocrites who would not tolerate a lie but would lie themselves. Our folks who teach us from the very beginning that lying is not a good thing have lied to us in so many ways that we can’t even imagine. Whether it be Santa Claus or whether it maybe the tooth fairy and sometimes if we didn’t listen to them, some devil or a ghost was to appear and eat us or vanish us. But looking it from another view, these lies were meant to instill the good habits and make us turn out to be who we are today.
