The Truth

Telling the truth can set you free

But at the same time, it can break you even more than a simple lie can

On the other hand

Telling a lie can kill you

It can seem perfect at that moment

But what about days later

What about the nagging feeling that one day they will find out

They will find out that you betrayed them

That you warped their feelings

That you abandoned them

That you kept up this facade for days maybe months only to have it crash down in front of you

Maybe at the time, you thought you were protecting them?

Maybe you thought it would spare their feelings?

Perhaps through lying you could save yourself the trouble of heartache or pain?

Even though you knew it would hurt a thousand times worse later

Possibly you believed you could tell them it was a lie later and maybe laugh about it together

Maybe you believed that it was for the best

That a simple lie would solve everything

It could let you take it all back

Let you forget

Let you live again

But here's the thing with lying

Even if you or the person your lying to don't get hurt by the lie, someone down the line most definitely will.

Which personally makes lying harder

Although for some reason I still do it

Even if I believe it's for the best at that moment I know down the line I will regret it

I always do

Perhaps what I'm trying to say here is that maybe one day we can all learn a lesson, it's probably the hardest one but its definitely needed.

That even though lying is easier it can cause more damage than the truth ever will.

That in the end the truth really does set you free.
