The LIES You Tell and Why I Choose to Believe Them?

Have you ever been lied to? Have you ever heard a lie that was so far fetched, that you laughed at it when you heard it. You ever asked, Why lie? Why lie about this? Why lie to me? Why lie on them? What’s wrong with the TRUTH? Wouldn’t it be so much easier to tell the truth?

I came up with a few reasons why we hate being lied to. We hate being lied to because, firstly, It’s UNNECESSARY. This is the lie that was not required. The question was not life threatening or life changing. It was a simple question that only required a simple answer.

Secondly, It was UNSOLICITED. I didn’t even ask you anything, you practically walked up to me and offered stupid false information.

Thirdly, It was INSULTING. The lack of quality and content placed into the development of the lie, tells me what you think of me. It clearly states that you think that I am dumb as a box of rocks.

Fourthly, It was IGNORANT. It doesn’t even make sense. Even without questioning or interrogation, you have single-handedly painted yourself into a corner with no way out.

So then, Why do we accept the lie? We don’t believe it, we just accept it, but why?

1. I think we believe the lie because, my love for the fool supersedes their lapse of memory, and their hopefully temporary moment of ignorance. Love covers a multitude of sins? I think that would include lies, possibly?

2. We believe the lie because, I refuse to let you destroy this relationship, and the value that “I” place on it, by something as shallow as this elementary lie.

3. We believe the lie because, I believe their are bigger bumps, obstacles, and mountains to climb in our near future. This “pebble of a lie,” is not even worth pulling over to see the damage. We just keep it moving and act like that didn’t hit the windshield.

I hope you are not living with a Liar. I want to show you what extent liars will go to, to tell their lie that they are “sticking with.”

There was a story of a husband and wife at home having a conversation. The wife says, “Honey, I hear that you are out messing around with other women?” The husband says, ” If you see me out with other women, you put your hand on me!!” The wife said, “Ok, that’s exactly what I’m gonna do.” A few months later, the wife finds her husband in a club. She goes in to see if she can find her husband. When she sees him, he is sitting with his arms wrapped tight around another woman. The wife walks up and places her hand on him and says, “I have my hand on you Honey!!” The husband replies , ” Baby, this ain’t me!!”

The funny part of this story is the wife said, “I actually stopped and thought about it !!”

  4. Interesting synopsis, Bishop…what I need to know, is why, when you catch someone in a lie, they are cold busted and then they put the onus on you!? Example, you approach someone, ask them a question,…they seemed shocked as all hell that you asked the question and then moments later, confront you and tell you that you were not proper (using readable words , toning it down a bit)..then to prove their point, they don’t treat you in the same manner? I am just saying!

  5. You can’t admit the truth when u get caught. Think about what you say and ensure its worth it in the long run. Treat others how u expect to be treated. If u dont mean me no good leave me alkne period point blank
