Why do people lie?

To escape from the truth. To prevent punishment. To make others look bad. To prevent oneself from looking bad. To make oneself look better. And who knows what reasons people out there have for lying about anything.

Do we really have to do this?

I don’t know much about reality, but from my point of view a lot of lies will be uncovered and the truth will come out. Some sayings even go “the truth always comes out in the end” or so.

Perhaps the risk in lying is really not that high, perhaps my view is obscured by movies and TV series. I don’t know. Who knows?

What would the consequences of complete honesty be?

For me, they would probably have meant I would not have wasted as much gas driving around hiding the fact I was skipping school/work in the past. I might have looked for a job sooner some of those times in the past when I was about to drop out of some school. Basically, had I been honest to myself and my parents, I might have earned more money and saved my parents some gas through the years.

What about for you? Think about it.
