When We Lie…

The harm it does us, one lie at a time.

It starts small. Testing the waters, whether we can do it, and how it’s received by the other.

It’s ‘Nothing’ we say, “Just didn’t want to have to explain it all to them.” We can tell ourselves it was a matter of convenience, lack of time, just avoidance.

On the other end of those lies is a person who’s shaping their world, out of the information they receive.
