The Truth Will Make You Happy
“We all weave a web of lies. Some we tell to try to help the ones we love, some we tell to try to fool ourselves.” – Manny Delgado (a character from the Emmy Award winning television show, Modern Family)
Whether it’s a “little white lie” or a big one, the fact is that you are not being truthful.
And worse than that, you KNOW you are being dishonest.
How do you feel when you lie?
My guess would be… pretty awful.
Once you lie it’s like you are trapped inside a prison that you cannot escape.
You know you are not only letting down those around you but most importantly you are letting down yourself.
And if anyone was to find out… the punishment just gets worse.
You know you are better than that.
Want to feel happier?
It’s simple. Always tell the truth no matter what.
People will trust you more and you will feel better about yourself.
You will be living a life full of integrity.
If that doesn’t make you happy, I don’t know what will. 🙂
I leave you with this…
Eve Ensler, a Tony Award winning playwright said, she learned “this really simple thing, which is that happiness exists in action; it exists in telling the truth…”
