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.
