We all lie in our lives at some point or the other.
But the consequences we face for lying are different, depending on the situations we lie.
If we lie for ourself, then we are at the receiving end of the cursed words, gouged eyes of others, shaking heads of dear ones, probably like we’re the black sheep of the family..
But if we lie for others, even though it just brings happiness to them for 1 second or 1 single moment then our lie is worth it and we get praised for what we did. Some also think that it was needed to be done & we did what was needed to be done. It’s quiet strange that if we lie for ourselves then there is no worst living being on Earth than us, but if we do it for others then we are the Best living being.. Strange world..
Sometimes the truth we hear are lies. Complex world, ain’t it?? The truth we hear from others,sometimes might be the lies they heard from some different others. So its a truth but ultimately a lie. So, it’s difficult to know what is lie & what is truth. It all comes down to the person who tells it. If we trust him, then no matter what they say, most of it will be truth and vice-versa.
There are some people(and yes I admit that I have come across them in my small lifetime), that they don’t care that you lied for a good purpose and may be cut you some slack because praising for doing a good/brave job is none of their concern. Instead, they hold on to the thought that you lied to them, no matter what the circumstance be, and then they always keep on reminding you about it and make you feel as if they have an upper hand with you, but they are wrong. They never did the right thing, which is make others happy or atleast try to make others happy by doing something not doable or lying for the sake of happiness of others.
There are also some people who think that it’s lying, if we don’t tell the truth. But, technically we just didn’t tell anything so I don’t know what will we call this except “unshared information” because we didn’t give an untruthful answer to the question. The fact is that the question was never asked and yet, we lied. Seriously, people and how they try to point fingers when things aren’t going their way.
I sometimes get confused about what is truth/lie but then I leave it on time & let time unfold it for me. But, we all need Hope & intuition & that leap of faith to move forward in life. So, we can also sometimes think that not all we heard was truth & then try to think those things as truth which are beneficial to us & discard the remaining.
Keep lying for the good cause,
