Since childhood, it was taught to me ‘Lying is a Vice’. One should never lie, isn’t this something that sounds familiar? I am sure it does and a lot of us have been trying hard to follow this since then. There are also a few like me, who make up stories instantly, which is compared to swift lying. All that being said – how many times a day do you have to lie? Not because you WANT to, but because you HAVE to.
Have you answered the above question?
No? Well, here comes Chaotic Soul to help you count the number of time you had to lie because people unknowingly or knowingly wanted you to lie.
You get up in the morning, tired and exhausted because you saw a scary dream, but you also know, if you say the same to your mother, she might blame everything to your mobile phone addiction. As we all know, every problems in our life is due to mobile phone (read with sarcasm). So you get up feeling exhausted but fake a smile so that no one asks you, “What happened? Didn’t sleep well?” Lie Number 1
This is just the beginning. In every aspect of our day, we have to lie.
You forgot to send a good morning text to your girl friend because you feel it is ‘Lame’ to wish good morning every day, so when she is angry with you, you just say, “I was stuck up in the meeting since I entered office, baby.” Lie Number 2.
A promotion is due and you need to show that you are the most deserving. So you decide to skip lunch. Not that you are not hungry, but you want to show your boss, how you don’t care about lunch. So when he asks you why you didn’t take lunch break, you say, “Oh my god sir, I completely forgot it is time for lunch.” You obviously were fantasizing about Chicken Noodles in the cafeteria. Lie Number 3
These were the few of so many lies that we have to say, to impress people, to keep people happy and to stay out of unnecessary arguments in life. Are these ‘lies’, making you a bad person? NO!!!
In fact, wonder what would happen if you tell the truth.
In the first situation if you told the truth to your family, “I saw a scary dream.” The next reply would be, “Stay all night on the phone. The rays from the phone generate the bad dreams.” The day started for you with truth but it turned out to be pretty ugly.
In the second situation you might be just dumped when you say that you don’t like sending ‘Lame’ Good Morning texts. And if not dumped then at least an hour of blabbering and crying and drama. (I have done it, myself). IF told the truth, your relationship would’ve been on the grounds of truth.
In the third one, you would’ve rather gone for lunch and eaten the Chicken noodles and the guy sitting next to you would’ve ‘Lied’ and skipped lunch. Well, you might have got a new manager but at least you said the truth.
If you say the truth, people around you are unhappy. If you say a lie, your soul is usually unhappy.
I wanted to say ‘The decision is yours’ but that would’ve been the lie. The decision is the society’s. If they want a truthful soul or a person who can make them happy.
This topic is to be continued with a new perspective, next week. Umm a Part-2, maybe!
