In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Sweet Little Lies.”
Lies are bad news. It is never justified not matter what the circumstance as ultimately you get hurt. Yes the truth can be painful but the lie just makes it worse. An unhappy truth is a ting, like that of a pin prick or bashing your head on a door frame, but a lie to hide an unhappy truth is an attempt to undermine and ultimately makes things worse as it creates a level of distrust which leads to paranoia and all of its delightful consequences. In the long run the truth can’t hurt you, lies do.
