Lying happens every day in our lives, it is not impossible to stop lying, but it is not a simple task. Lying is especially hard for people who happen to do it everyday. Often people do not have reason for having to lie, but rather it is an impulse to do it. Most may have a reason to lie, but there is always going to be consequences, weather it is good or bad.
For example, to keep yourself out of trouble, to protect/help someone else or to make some one happy/upset. However, there are two main types of lies, the occasional white lie and the severe lie that can hurt the people around you. People lie everyday to, in someway or another, keep themselves out of trouble. Many teenagers will lie to their parents about what they are doing for the evening, how much of their homework they have done, or how that glass vase got broken while they were out of town.
We even lie to our significant others about who that other boy was that called the house or what exactly we did with our friends last night. All anyone is trying to accomplish by this is to stay out of trouble when we know we’ve done wrong. But we never think of the effects of lying. Although we think we’re being sly, parents are usually smarter than we give them credit for! And eventually our boyfriends and girlfriends will find out! Then the problem becomes the issue of trust. If you lie, there is no trust. That can be one of the serious consequences of lying.
