Respect yourself and others.
People tell a white lie. It’s inevitable.
Someone said to me, “Oh I love your blog posts! I ‘always’ read them!” But I haven’t post any articles on my personal blog in the last twelve months. I also checked Google Analytics to see if there is an access from the town the person lives in—NONE.
I saw a post on Pinterest saying “when someone lies to you, it’s because they don’t respect you enough to be honest, and they think you’re too stupid to not know the difference.” It might be true, but is this belief worth believing for the rest of our life?
Probably not. The person might have just revealed how he or she is and that we can’t count on the person when things get tough, but people—including each one of us—can change. Even when someone doesn’t respect you enough, don’t disrespect the person.
More importantly—don’t lie to yourself. If you don’t respect yourself enough to be honest, and if you think you’re too stupid to not know the difference, your life will end in vain.
