Today’s NaBloPoMo blog topic is “How good are you at telling a lie?” Wow..Do I want to get into this? Oh why not.
I think there are times in everyone’s life where we have to tell little white lies. Either to be kind and not hurt someone’s feelings or maybe to get out of an uncomfortable situation or for some other reason. Is this ok? Well that’s up to you. I’m not going to say yes or no because we all do it.
Now for real lies. There was a time in my life when I was a great big liar. I lied about everything. I wasn’t ashamed. I didn’t think anything was wrong with it and I slept just fine at night thank you very much. Then my lies started to come out and started to hurt people. Then guilt started. Then I started to realize the reason I didn’t like going to church…guilt and conviction. That was where I needed to be and I knew it. So what did I do? I forced myself to start going back to church. I put myself into therapy and through that I dealt with issues from my teen years that had never been dealt with that had been the root of all my evil. It took me a long time to get better. I got over my “evil” ways but I still wasn’t the person I should have been. That took a lot longer. It wasn’t until I was in my 30’s that I finally gave my life over to Christ and said “please fix me” Well he helped me fix myself and I am a completely different person.
So in answer to the question..No I am no longer good at telling lies. I couldn’t tell a lie to save my life.
