“It’s a basic truth of the human condition that everybody lies. The only variable is about what. The weird thing about telling someone they’re dying is it tends to focus their priorities. You find out what matters to them. What they’re willing to die for. What they’re willing to lie for.” — Dr. Gregory House
People tell LIES to save themselves from trouble, some for FAME, some for EGO, while some – well, just to SAVE face. I’ve heard of HORROR stories that have happened to my friends. I for one was a VICTIM of a lie.
I hate these kinds of people. They make me wish they NEVER existed at all. I HATE LIARS – they make me sick. One of the great things my mom has taught me is NEVER to lie. It’s true that ‘the TRUTH will set you free‘ – it will, and it STILL does. If one tells the truth – ONE need not worry, if one TELLS a lie, that person will worry to DEATH because the truth may come about, eventually. Being honest and transparent with everthing brings about a certain peace and tranquility in a person. You become at peace with yourself and with the world. You BECOME worry free. But WHEN you tell a lie, everything becomes the exact opposite. Although there’s a certain amount of peace that you experience, it’s only TEMPORARY – because the TRUTH has its own special way of creeping up into your life whenever everything SEEMS to be normal.
I’m NOT claiming that I’ve never lied, because as God is my witness I have done so – countless of times. I’m merely saying that for me.. the lies I’ve told – I’ve regreted.
the TRUTH as I would always say(as about everything else) – is RELATIVE. It may mean one thing to someone and a whole other thing to someone else. Like what I learned in Philosophy class back in DLSU – everything is relative. And so I try and understand people’s actions and reactions.
All I want to say is that – with the TRUTH on your side – everything will be OKAY, everything will be RIGHT, and every thing and everyone will be at PEACE.
So to the PEOPLE WHO TELL LIES for reasons that are beyond me, I wish you GOOD LUCK – As I said – the TRUTH has its special way of creeping up into your life when everything A-Okay.
**Note – These are just my sentiments. NOTHING MORE, nothing less..
***To THAT friend of mine – You know who you are, I WISH YOU WELL WITH EVERYTHING.. 🙂 Be STRONG.. Kaya mo yan!! I will ALWAYS be HERE for you, Promise!
