Many times people lie, thinking that they are helping themselves rather than doing anything bad. Some even believe that it is best to cover the truth, as unveiling such would do more harm than good. However, lies actually kill relationships, and here are four reasons why you should stop lying.
Lies kill trust
Once the person finds out you have been lying to them, they may forgive you, but they won't forget and that can foster mistrust. They will doubt or challenge everything you say after that.
You become a habitual liar
Telling lies is an easy habit to attain and a hard one to drain. Once you have told a lie, it will become a cycle as you will have to create a million more to cover the first.
It is unfair to anyone to be led to believe that you are something when you're not! It is best to allow the truth to shine.
It erases the meaning of love
When you lie, the individual will never look at you the same ever again and that changes how they relate to you and how they view you.
