Heart to heart: 5 reasons why you should always tell the truth even when it is uncomfortable

There is a popular phrase that goes: tell the truth and let it set you free,” that has been around for centuries.

We have all had our turns telling white lies from time to time, whether it is to tell a lie for ourselves, our siblings or our friends. However, there are lies that are inexcusable.

As we get older, it can get more tempting to tell bigger lies, whether it is at work or in other situations. But you need to understand that telling lies is not in your best interest.

There are so many reasons why telling lies is not in your best interest and you should always tell the truth. Below are a few of them:

  1. Lying can make you stressed trying to keep up
  2. Lying can destroy your reputation
  3. The truth will always come out
  4. Lying prevents you from making deeper connections
  5. When you lie, you will always have to remember your lies

For the reasons above, lying only holds you back and the time that you spend monitoring your lies in order to prevent them from getting out of hand can be spent doing other productive things.

So, do yourself a favour and stick to the truth. Don’t forget to share your thoughts on this article in the comments section below.
