Not Anymore....

 

I use to Lie. I lied a LOT in my past, but I was taught a Life lesson, and Almost lost everything that I Loved and Cared about so Desperately. It was one of the hardest things I have ever had to do in my life, was to come to terms with what had happened, and learn to tell the truth, and not care about what people thought of me.

Learning to tell the truth, has to have been one of the hardest things that I have had to do. For almost three years, I was living a Lie, and than I just got fed up with trying to remember all the lies I told, and to who I told what lie to. So basically lying just took so much out of me, and along with that, is I was sick of lying, and hurting people. Although I never meant to hurt anyone, I am sure I did somewhere along the line.

Within the past year or so I have completely turned around told everyone the truth about me, although it wasn't the easiest thing to do, in fact it is one of the hardest things I have had to do, I felt so much better about myself, after I came clean to everyone.

I don't lie anymore, not even a fib here and there. I am 100% honest. I don't lie, because I wouldn't want someone lying to me. Since I have decided to come clean, I did lose a few friends, but for the most part, I kept most of them. I know I have to earn their trust back, and I plan on doing whatever it takes to do that.

I use to care so much about weather people believed me or not, but now, I can't even be bothered about it. I know what is the truth, and I don't plan on Lying anytime in the near future.

I was never a massive liar , but I did use to lie quite a bit. I NEVER lie anymore and I find it prevents a lot of stress and confrontation in life.An honest life is a happy life:)

I like your philosophy. I do my best to always tell the truth, and I avoid situations that I would want to try and hide the truth about. It makes for a boring life sometimes, but at least I find that I can go to sleep with a clear conscience. I am not so much afraid of what other people would think, as I am of what I would ultimately end up thinking about myself and my actions. <br />

Congratulations! My problem is somewhat the opposite. I tell the truth and it is so fantastical I have trouble believing it and I was there! So I only confide in people I really trust or will never see. :-)'
