    White Lies?

    we tell white lies from time to time..have you told someone a white lie that goes beyond on its intended purpose, that it became a serious issue?

    "Oh, what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive." - Sir Walter Scott.

    Yes, I have and I have been hoisted and hung by something that started as a white lie.  I try to avoid deceiving, now, at all cost.

    I tend to avoid even white lies for this reason. I can't think of any time off the top of my head where it became a serious issue, but it's certainly possible that I have. It really can get complicated...

    Even when we think the white is the best thing to do then we find it is so wrong and it comes back later to bite us in the butt.  great  question.. to be honest I have and I regretted every word later.. so the best thing I have found is just don't lie about anything.. if you cant say something nice don't lie just keep your mouth shut

    The bravest thing is to always be honest. I believe I'm too mortal to be honest 100%. Recently I was invited to a wedding that I was really looking forward to, but on that day I felt so awful with myself that it was enough to make me not go. I told the girl who was getting married that I was ill. I don't know whether or not she believed me but her disappointment was enough to distance us.

    Lying, no matter what colour, is wrong.

    A lie is a lie...better to tell the truth and move on..and bear the consequences of truth..rather than a lie..just my thoughts..

    I honestly don't think I've told any white lies in my time. I'm genuinely pretty honest, though if I'd told a few, then they didn't have a serious impact on anything. I do joke a lot, but then again that's a joke...
