There is a very strange and sickening attitude running rampant throughout our day & time. I am noticing it more & more everyday. It is okay to lie, telling the truth is not important..It’s old hat to be honest & not tell lies. Let me just say this. “I do not lie because…
1. I know I will get caught
2. It does not make me feel good
3. I know the truth needs no defense
4. I want to have integrity
5. Lies will always hurt someone
However, here’s a few examples of what people think..
Julia Louis-Dreyfus in an interview I read recently says”We live in a culture NOW where it’s almost like we are used to being lied to. it’s an incredible age we live in.”
What this says to me is like I am weird because I am not a liar; and I so do not like dealing with liars, because they can not be trusted with anything as far as I am concerned.
Some may say there’s something wrong with me because I expect people to be telling me the truth in complete opposition to what Julia thinks. However, I am not now, nor will I ever get used to being lied to!
There’s also a line in the zillion copies sold of Adele’s Cd ” 21″..not sure which song, but I know the quote says “just because I said it..doesn’t mean I meant it.” This really irritates me as I feel it makes the person who believed it an “dumb-ass.” That’s an outright insult!
