"The Ways We Lie"

So today I received an essay to read about Lying.
It was amazing!

Its written by Stephanie Ericsson, and it covers the way people lie. Such as White Lies, Facades, Ignoring Plain Facts, Deflecting, Omission, Stereotypes and Cliches, Groupthink Out-and-Out Lies, and Dismissal. Each going into amazing detail about how she has used it and examples of what we as people do to lie.

And we lie an awful lot. I try and be truthful, and I am most of the time, but even me, have to pull the old White Lie out just to pass the time. And while i read, I came to the conclusion, that we lie to make things easier.


If life was meant to be easy, then why are we given obstacles to be put in our way? I like to overcome these obstacles. Do you?

I just thought I would throw that out there.
