Lies build up, they fester, they push against a moral compass you may or may not know you even have.
The truth is painful, it’s raw, it strips you clean from all the devices you’ve used to hide yourself behind.
If you must speak, speak honestly. Say the truth with integrity and you will have no ghosts haunting your shadows.
Lies are hard to recover from …because the lie is only discovered once the truth has been uncovered.
Once the truth is laid bare you have more than one thing to own up to… Why did you lie in the first place?
The truth has nothing to hide.
Be brave. Live with integrity.
The truth is much easier to forgive than the lie.
