Blog prompt: Today is National Honesty Day. How do you feel about honesty? Do you feel like there are times that it is okay to be dishonest? If so, when?
It’s sad to see today the dishonesty that goes on. Its all over the news, people you work with and people that are close to you.
What has broke my heart more than anything is having a true friend, I thought, lie to my face. There is nothing worse then having a friend lie to you! Well, now that I have been burned, I am less trustful of people and it shouldn’t be that way. I look at people differently and it seems they have to earn my trust to get close to me now. I am afraid to let my guard down.
I have some very close friends that I would trust with my life and know they are truthful with me. I cherish that.
Now about when its ok to lie a tiny bit. I remember telling little white ones to my son because he was too young to understand the truth or because, maybe I didn’t want to deal with it. And of course, telling him a little lie came back to bite me later on when he was older because he remembered it.
We were at McDonald’s and I always got him a plain cheeseburger. He was maybe 3 years old. When I opened it up for him, I noticed they put those little onions on it. He asked me what those were and I told him, “That is only big salt. It’s ok” I LIED AND HE REMEMBERED THAT!!!!!! Years later he told me about it too and to this day will bring it up now and again when we have a burger together.
So I guess the best advice is never tell a lie!!
