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...

We all know that every once in a while we tell a little white lie, and sometimes (okay we'll be honest, a lot of the time), those 'little' white lies snowball into giant monsters we no longer have control over. But there are certain instances, I'm sure you can think of a few examples, where...

Is it good to be 100% honest in a marriage?-YES? Do your forecast your actions (let's call that 'pre-honesty') or wait for him or her to ask ('post-honesty')?-NO? Why isn't it good to be 100% honest?-AND do you expect / demand the same of your spouse? Or do you have 'your own brand' of honesty and...

Why do people disguise who they reaaly are, why do people lie, is it possible to be 100% honest?Lying does it exist because of that fear of rejection takes over our very being, is it because we do not trust anyone truly. In life would things be turned upside down if you would simply never make...

My daughter is going through a phase where she is lying a lot. It's not about big stuff, and she's pretty honest about if she does wrong things. But she will lie to try to get her way. I am trying to figure out how to get over this hump.

What do you think of white lies? Why do we tell others them? What if we went without them?

Is it better to lie than to hurt someone's feelings for being honest?
