|"Truth brings light..." Gerri Smalley|
It's amazing to me that people lie. No, seriously... Being a person who lives as authentically as possible, lies baffle me.
What really gets me, is when questioned, some liars say it was for the other person's benefit. It makes me want to yell, "No! It was for YOUR benefit. Being honest would have been so much better."
The truth is...
-Lies need more lies to survive.
-Lies destroy the foundation of trust.
-Lies bring confusion and darkness.
-Lies feed a liar's fear and in turn, once found out,
-Lies create fear in the one that was lied to.
I say, let's decide to be courageous! Let's make the decision to be authentic with each other! Let's wipe away the need for lies by compassionately, gently, being. . . . honest.
I know what you're thinking, she's crazy. Everybody lies...
Well, you know what, that doesn't HAVE to be the truth, now does it?
