People lie for many different reasons. Sometimes, they do so with the best of intentions. As ironic as that might seem, it usually starts out that way. The problem with lying is that once you have sowed the tiny seed of deceit, you will then find yourself in need to either water it frequently thereby encouraging its growth or nip it altogether therefore putting it to bed. And many would choose the former. It is “easier”. In their mind, it probably is the better option. This cycle is likely to repeat itself to a point where if found out, it will only cause tremendous pain due to its now enormous size. So beware of the temptation to take the easy way out. It might start out seemingly harmless. But it always has the potential to grow into something very harmful.
