Sweet Little Lies – a prompt from The Daily Post

Sweet Little Lies

As kids, we’re told, time and again, that lying is wrong. Do you believe that’s always true? In your book, are there any exceptions?


I took this lesson from my parents to heart. I am honest to a fault. I have hurt people’s feelings depending on what mood on my Bipolar Disorder swing I happen to be in though and that is not good.

Now with that being said, when I am playing nice. I don’t want to hurt people. If they ask me if I like their new dress. I will say yes. A little white lie that avoids a lot of tears.

I think we should be honest with the big things and I usually can’t stop myself from telling the truth.

In order to avoid cheating on my marriage and thereby hurting my husband (who I now am sure was cheating on me) I told him flat out I was going to have sex with another man. No cheating and he had equal rights (still didn’t know about the others then) and we agreed to an open marriage. I risked a divorce (it did come later when he left me for someone else), but honesty was more important to me.

      You want to talk about lying big time. I lived with a man who turned out to be a con man and he took everything I had. He was real good at it. I wrote the story up. Probably could search on con man in the search box and find the 3 pc story if you wanted to. Now that was a LIE. ❤
