And what qualifies as a lie in your opinion? Little untruths in the course of pleasantries, untruths told to spare someone’s feelings, or great big whoppers with cheese used perhaps to avoid negative consequences?
Ordinarily, I don’t consider the first two as lies and I wonder how many times a day I tell those. I rarely tell a bald faced lie, just because I don’t feel like I should have to. I know the conseqences of my actions and accept them as they come. But, the little untruths to get through the day? No telling.
It’s 10:30 am and I haven’t lied, so far, today. That’s probably because I haven’t spoken to my boss or a customer, yet.
How many lies do you think you tell each day?
