LYING WILL lead you to no good. But there are times when it makes things better. Lying may not be a good thing but it’s also not a bad thing at all.
All of us have lied. Who haven’t? We lie to others. We even lie to ourselves. And why do we lie? It’s because we want to make things better before it even get worse. It’s because we want to avoid others from getting hurt. It’s because, we ourselves, don’t want to get hurt. It’s because there are times that we don’t know what to do anymore than to lie. It’s because there are times that we won’t accept the truth because we just can’t stand it.
And sometimes we lie for an unknown reasons. We’ve got a lot of reasons to lie. Some reasons for good, some for bad, some for good ending up for bad, some for bad ending up for good. We’ve got reasons no matter what, it’s because people never run out of reasons.
There are times when we lie having good intentions but the aftermath ending up worse. Because whenever we lie, there will always be people who’ll be affected. No matter how hard we try not to involve others, someone will always get hurt without us intending to.
I really don’t know if it’s ‘okay’ to lie.
Let’s admit it, we have even lied to ourselves. It’s too complicated right? Lying to ourselves; how can we lie to ourselves if we already knew what is true from what is not? I think it involves rejection. Notwithstanding the truth, we chose to reject that it really is true even if we knew it is.
Now tell me who haven’t lie?
Even the truth is the mirror of lies.
“YES”, “OKAY”, “no problem”, “of course”, nowadays these are the common answers of people if someone begs for a favor. Others became afraid of saying ‘no’ because when they say ‘no’ it’s like they’re out of this world, they’re out in the circle of friends. And it came to the point that people forgot to utter ‘no’. Then we are obliged to do what we do not want to do, we do the favor of others with our sad faces and with a heavy feelings, and we are, occasionally, do even the bad things. We kept walking on the wrong road even if we already knew we are on the wrong way which violated our own self, our own decision, our own life.
People often say “action speaks louder than word” and most of us believe those, most of us take that into action. I’m not saying it’s not right because it is true.. but not all the time. Our mistake is that we go with the flow; we are like ‘forced’ to believe something because that’s what many believe in to.
Sometimes people misunderstood your actions. For some it didn’t appear how you want it to and that’s when things get complicated. When things get complicated, explanations and reasons are needed but then those were just heard by the ears and not mind and heart. It means when you started to have explanations or reasons that’s when others have hard time accepting those because people, as well as the ears, got tired of listening. In order to avoid getting things complicated, at times, it’s better to talk first, talk. Let us learn to ‘not to do’ what many have done because the thing is; happenings have a different outcome. Maybe for others “action speaks louder than word” but not for all of us; we have different dilemmas, different problems, different life and we are different people, different from one another.
When we go with the flow, sometimes, things get complicated.
