Little White Lies

Do you Lie? 
Maybe just a little white lie now and then?

We are a nation of liars. Americans tell an average of 11 lies, 
both big and small, each week. 

Most of us fib because we’re trying to sidestep something uncomfortable, says Fran Walfish, a family psychotherapist and author in Beverly Hills, Calif. 

"Very often, people lie so no one will be mad at them," she says. At other times, we fudge the truth to feel better about ourselves, impress someone, or escape punishment or other negative consequences.

I know that I don't lie that many times a day! 
How about you? 

Maybe that's because I don't have anyone to talk to on a daily basis. Except for my dogs... maybe I lie to them. Just a little. 

Now that brings me around to a whole other topic. Not only do I talk to my dogs, but I talk to myself as well! I may just save that for another day...

So I am curious... 

* Do you ever lie?

* Why do you lie? 

* What do you consider a lie? 

* Do you feel guilty for lying? 

Please share with me your thoughts on lying... 
and be sure to tell the truth!

Enjoy this cute 2 minute video.

Have a wonderful Sunday!

seem to be lying a lot to my almost 83 year old mom, as she doesn't hear well, but argues that she I go like this: "oh mom you didn't understand me that well the other day, or..I forgot to tell you that..whatever, and than I raise my voice so she can finally hear me, but I'm constantly lying something for her own good, or mine, as she gets mad and argues with me about how I didn't tell! There's just the two of us, we just go about our things, so there's not much talking..but, I do make a point not to fib a little, even, I save it when it's a matter of life and death, lol!!! Some Politians lie everyday with a hard FACE TOO!! Have a great week, this post was fun Bunny Jean.

Thanks for sharing. I do not like liars or telling lies; however, . . .

I'm sorry to take so long to comment, but my computer acted up.

Happy Blue Monday, Bunny Jean.

I attended Catholic school so I am a terrible liar and could never tell a lie without getting busted!

I love the Pinocchio story about telling a lie!

I try not to lie, but we have certainly been hearing lots of them during this political season. Sheesh. What are we teaching our kids?
