Remember when lying was a sin?
It was about the same time when we discovered the horrors of the words “shut up” or pointing at people.
Remember when lying got us in trouble, but at the end of the day we knew we were loved.
Remember when lying was something we tried our hardest never to do
When things were so much easier if we told the truth.
Remember when we were first told to lie.
‘Don’t tell that lady she has a mole’
‘Don’t tell that person you don’t like them’
‘Don’t tell mom/dad’
‘Tell your teacher we lost your homework paper and you need a new one’
‘Don’t worry, I will call you in sick’
‘Pretend you didn’t hear them ‘
All perfectly good lies.
Sorry I am tattling though.
