Pants on Fire

I Lied Today.

I told the truth right afterward and then I apologized.

I felt terrible.

It was a tiny lie that would not have affected anyone.

But that wasn’t the point. Is there even such a thing as a ‘tiny lie’?

I strive to be a person of integrity, an upstanding citizen, a person to whom those younger than me can look up to. After all, I’d just written about lying here.

No one would have known that I’d lied…

Except me.

And I just can’t have that.

I NEVER want to talk the talk but not walk the walk.

I don’t write this to pat myself on the back; I should have never even thought about lying, let alone done it.

I write this to keep myself honest and to let you know that you aren’t alone if you’ve faced a similar situation lately.

If you haven’t told the truth yet, do it.

Humble yourself and bite the bullet.

Apologize, and mean it.

Next time, take a second and decide to tell the truth from the beginning and deal with the consequences.
