I’m not a proponent of lying. I don’t as if it when people lie. If they lie once, you ought to they’re not lying again?
Lately, I’ve been planning on what the concise explaination a lie happens to be. Is there time when telling a lie is best to do? And, is every lie a non-truth?
The reason I’ve been having these thoughts is always that I just celebrated my birthday. It always sneaks standing on me, and I’m undecided why because doing so happens yearly.
It was like when I was at school, we always stood a test on Friday, and yes it always surprised me the teacher were built with a test.
So my birthday this coming year was a bit of a surprise because I was so busy doing other pursuits I forgot about this. Having a birthday yearly can be a little monotonous.
One plus side to my birthday is always that the Gracious Mistress from the Parsonage’s birthday is 48 hrs after mine. And so, if she remembers my birthday, then I will automatically remember hers. I love it every time a plan all comes together.
Through recent years, I wrestled which has a certain problem. Do I fully realize my birthday exactly? Do I be aware of exact day, the precise month, the actual year?
The reason I say it is because my parents are the type that fed me this personal data. And to tell the truth, they haven’t yet always been truthful by himself, I’m sorry to mention.
For instance, it took me a while to realize that Santa Claus wasn’t real. All those years my parents informed me that Santa Claus was real and hubby was going to bring my presents if I would have been a good boy. I believed and trusted them.
I still remember fondly the day when I found out that Santa Claus wasn’t real. When I accosted my parents with this particular new information, they only explained it by saying, “Son, we had been trying to make your daily life better and provide you something to hope for.” Then they would smile and asked about if I liked my Christmas present.
So, in case a lie produces accomplishment, it’s okay?
Then there was clearly the Easter Bunny. Every year we may celebrate the Easter Bunny and collect the eggs scattered throughout the yard. I was quite intrigued with the Easter Bunny to this extent that I raised bunnies.
Then the morning came when I realized how the Easter Bunny wouldn’t exist.
Again, I accosted my parents on this new information that I had, and so they explained it by saying, “Son, we simply wanted someone to have something fun to take a look forward to.”
So, a lie is okay if this ends up with somebody enjoying themselves!
As I got older, my personal favorite was the Tooth Fairy. For every tooth that I could pull, I would get $0.25 under my pillow that night. Whenever I were built with a loose tooth, I got very excited and began planning what to try and do with the $0.25.
My parents were very excited after they saw how excited I was using a loose tooth, and dad helped pull against each other for me. Then, when I attended bed, I slipped it under my pillow with all the eager anticipation that there could be $0.25 under my pillow each day.
Every morning there were that $0.25, and I grabbed it, ran right down to the kitchen and showed my mother and father just what the Tooth Fairy had brought me that night.
One afternoon, I was seeking something inside my parent’s bedroom, and I afflict come across a little box filled with teeth. They seemed somewhat familiar; the truth is, I realized these were my teeth.
Again, I accosted my parents and said, “Why are my teeth in this particular little box?”
Nervously, my father and mother looked at the other person, then my dad said, “I’m unsure. Maybe the Tooth Fairy dropped it by accident.” Then both my dad and mom would laugh and remind me of this $0.25.
So, were my parents truthful in telling me when my birthday is?
I say all this to try to understand when it’s appropriate to lie.
On my birthday, several citizens were asking me, “How old do you think you’re today?” Then they would laugh.
So taking some clues from my parents, it could be appropriate to me to spin some lies so everyone is happy and enjoying themselves.
As I was blowing out your birthday cake candles, I said, “I’m undecided how old I am, but I seem like 27.” Then everybody would laugh.
Someone said, “What is your best house party?”
I had some under consideration, but I said, “The one I’m having to you guys at the moment.” And everybody laughed.
I spun other lies I will not mention now after which looked around in the group, and individuals were having a good time. Based on my parent’s example, if people are having a great time, it’s okay to lie.
