Back in grade school I used to lie, ALOT. I’m not sure why exactly but I’m guessing it was a way to get attention. One day a friend pulled me aside in the bathroom and talked straight with me. She said everyone knew I was lying and that made them not want to be friends with me. I wasn’t cured over night but that was a life changing moment for me.
I’m telling you this so that you don’t think I’m attacking anyone (certainly not Mac.)
Don’t Lie. Simple enough right? I would think so for adults but I’ve been proven wrong recently. Because of my past and my upbringing this is a very big deal to me. I don’t like being lied to, not only because of the untruth itself but because of the lack of trust it creates. I don’t want to go around fact checking everything someone tells me.
Lying not only harms a marriage it can distroy it. The same holds true for friendship, bussniss relationships and parent child relationships. Just don’t do it.
