In our quest to be accepted by others, we are often tempted to abandon what we know is right. There is no amount of rationalizing that can justify dishonest practices. Entering into any type of engagement under false pretenses will only lead to a bigger problem in the end.
You can navigate through life either impressing people with lies or influencing people with truth. Seeking truth transforms us. Yet, there are those who think they’ll get what they want through dishonest practices so they’ll flatter, deceive, and lie to the point of affecting their very core. This type of behavior can cause you to lose sight of who you are and your ability to relate to others. Dealing in lies, is dealing in fear. Allowing fear to rule you, makes fear way more powerful than it should be.
