Liar, liar, pants on fire.
Have you ever told a lie? Even a little white lie?
Is it ever okay to lie? Do you think that stretching the truth is lying? Or is lying by omission lying?
Have you ever lied about your spending habits or about an illness to a boss so that you could take an extra vacation day? Is there such a thing as an acceptable lie?
Research out of the University of California suggests that people tell an average of two lies a day. A survey conducted in the UK estimated that parents will tell children approximately 3,000 lies throughout their childhood and a US poll reported that 31% of moms said that they lied more often since having kids.
So is it possible to always tell the truth? Probably not as sometimes we lie to protect the feelings of another or to prevent issues from arising.
So Here are today’s Hot Tips For Building Resiliency and Celebrating Tell The Truth Day:
Take note of the things that you may be lying about. Then, ask yourself why do you feel the need to lie about these things? The insights that you garner may be invaluable in measuring your morale compass.
See how long you can go without lying. And avoiding all other human contact during this time doesn’t count. Do you have a harder time not lying at work or at home?
REMEMBER THE GOLDEN RULE – Let the truth you share be in a manner that you would also appreciate.
