Lies

I bet you felt a rush every time you lied as a child. As if you were doing something illegal. But where is that feeling now? We have really gotten used to lying that now we can do it without even worrying we will fail at it or that everybody is going to call us on it.
If you make sure you count the times you lie in a day you will be surprised. Not only the serious lies, but rather the white ones. They are A LOT.
We tell ourselves that with white lies we spare the feelings of others, but in all truth, I think we lie to ourselves. Ironic right?
It's like saying that if you omit the truth, then that doesn't count as a lie. Well technically it is not the same, but it's lying when you make up other lies to create a foolproof and believable story. As you probably saw in one of my other posts, the snowball effect isn't pretty, and in this case lies create a web. And the bigger the web, the easier it is to tear apart. And when it's torn, then all trust has gone bye-bye.
I'm not here to scold you and make sure you don't lie. I'm here to tell you my personal experience as far as the perfect lie goes.
Nothing is perfect, so trying to keep some story or event hidden isn't probably going to work out. Then how do you make sure it lasts for a long time? In my opinion there are two basic points. First don't kiss and tell, and, secondly, make it vague.
If you happen to tell a lie then don't go on to tell your best friend what you did, for your own sake. If you do then your "story's" durability is limited. The most important thing is to make it seem like you are ignorant to the topic, create a lie and make sure it has some truth to it. So if anybody asks you can have an immediate excuse. Oh, and also, don't create trivial details about the lie, just the necessary stuff.
But use with caution. Lying isn't good for you or your loved ones. This advice is only given to help you make better excuses when not in the mood to do something work or school related, not to deceive the people you care about!
