"The truth about the the truth: it hurts, so we lie".

"Lying is bad. or so we are told constantly from birth. honesty is the best policy. the truth shall set you free, I chopped down the cherry tree, whatever. the fact is, lying is a necessity. we lie to ourselves cause the truth, the truth freakin' hurts, no matter how hard we try to ignore or deny it. eventually the lies fall away, whether we like it or not. but here's the truth about the truth, it hurts. so we lie" - Grey's Anatomy.

The above, taken from Grey's Anatomy, is probably the truest form of lying. It's so true. We always have been taught that we are to tell the truth because its:

A) moral,

B) honest, and

C) the truth is always the best.

And as much as I do believe telling the truth is always the best way to go, why is lying easier?

People lie everyday. It may be a small fib to a enormous lie. Why do we deny when confronted about it. Are we not happy with ourselves to just tell the truth? Maybe it's because we are ashamed. I'm not sure.

I like to tell the truth. Basically because it keeps me out of any kind of trouble. But I fail. I lie. It may be small things like "Oh yeah, I do like your shoes" or sometimes bigger things.

We all claim that we lie to "protect" someone else. What a crock. We lie to protect ourselves. How sad? Not necessarily.

Life presents too many obstacles and too many difficulties to not lie. Lying can sometimes be helpful. Lying may buy you more time. Lying may be the only solution.
If you were to avoid all liars, you would be alone. You would have no one to talk to. Everyone lies. It's something we need to accept. Although, do not judge anyone on their lying. They can't help it. They are only human. I'm also, only human.
