I admire this postion. I confess that I can not live up to this. Laziness or not I lie without being really aware of it. If I think I'm going to hurt someone's feelis, I lie. If I don't want to go out with a guy, I lie. Simple.
But I have a friend who is amazingly straight forward and it really does seem to work for them.
: i found lying is a management headache. You know cause its easy to tell the truth, its always there and has a universal standard surpasing culture. I can remember or at least say in confidence that a apple i droped fell to the ground. I don,t even remenber if i told anyone that it fall up, and if i did, i hope i don,t run into them cause if they asked me today, not rememnering who i lied to, i would say the apple will fall down when i let it go. Now think the brainpower needed for a complex lie that has a long term agenda. I usauly end up investing in the upkeep up the lie so much that cutting my losses is no longer desirable. Even though i know i have lost control of my lying and now its not getting what i want, but involed with a better liers want now. Now i franticly devise a way to save face. To much work and talent which is not my nature. I am lazy, so i tell the truth. But i still try to find easier ways to lie, but not heavily invest though thier is always a chance to get sucked in again. Imagine trying to keepup a matric of lies with 12 humans examining you for a glitch to get to the truth. good luck
