Faith, trust and believe. Do they sound the same to you? Are they easy to be define? If yes, how do you define it? Are you saying that telling someone your biggest secret as trust? Or does it have anything to do with the responsibilities you are holding? How do people believe in things they have never seen before? There are so many questions aroused from these three words, and the answer may differ from one people to another. But what confuses me the most is the answer as to why people are lying. Different people have different reasons, and circumstances may forced them to do it.
But really, is there any circumstance that allows people to lie and get away with it? (Minus the one where you and your family’s lives are being threatened). I really think there’s none “Honesty is the best policy” is one of the oldest sayings, but as we gain more years, people are lying more and more without any guilty. “I don’t want to hurt their feelings”. “I don’t want them to hate me” . Say, if the fact that you are lying are discovered, won’t they be more hurt? Wouldn't they start to hate you from that point on forth?
I have once, wished for everyone to be honest with me. But apparently, telling me bad things about myself straight to my face is not easy. Talking behind others' backs seems to be a better option. I do not really understand the reasons for this and people are doing it all the time. Everywhere around me, I will catch people lying about what they really feel about me. I had a knack of recognizing liars since I was a child. But I have not figured out the answers to my questions.
Being honest may not be the easiest thing to do, but it’s definitely better than to keep on lying. Being honest is simply a huge mountain, after you climb over it, the obstacles will be behind you, and you don’t have to carry it anymore as a burden. After you tell others the truth, you don’t have to lie or pretend anymore. Being hypocrite takes a lot of work and energy, and lying itself does not worth all the trouble you have to put up with. So pluck out the courage and speak the truth. The truth may hurt people, but lies hurt them more.
