In this essay, I will discuss the area in my life that why don’t lie things. But it doesn’t mean I didn’t lie. Everyone told their lie when they were young kids. When a person lie is a strange or bad habit because that doesn’t need to teach anyone or learning thing, everyone knows it’s automatically happening.

In this easy, I will explain why I lie sometimes and why I don’t lie. Sometimes lies are helpful especially when you’re in a dangerous situation or for self-protection, for example, kids lie a lot because when they make mistake, they know they’re going to get punishment for that, at that time they will make a lie.

In my cases when I was a kid, I lied a lot to my parents otherwise I get beat from them. So, it for self-protection. There is a negative and positive side effect of telling lie. The positive thing is you can get out from some dangerous situation and the negative side of lie is if a person lies all time no one trust that person. When a person grows up to their adult life, they must stop lying. Some people think the lie makes people happy. It will make them happy but that doesn’t last forever. The main reason I am saying this when I was 13 years old, I lied to my parents about one thing that made them feel happy but one day my dad realized I lied to him. When he came home, he told me only one thing “I don’t trust you anymore”. When I heard that I thought he already realized I lied to him and, he was mad. After that, I never lied to him. The main reason I don’t lie, my dad, doesn’t like telling him lies. I still remember when I was kid, he told me “if you made some mistake, it’s okay just admit it.” When I tell him, I made some minor mistake he says, “it ok for now and don’t do it again”.

Sometimes the lies save life. The reason I am saying this in 2016 I was going from my job to home two guys tried to rob me when I was in gas station. They asked me to give my wallet, I told them I don’t have wallet, but they didn’t believe, and I showed my pockets. Luckily, they didn’t do any stupid things to me. But honestly my wallet was in my car I told them I don’t have cash or anything. So, in that time lie save me otherwise they will take my cash. From this experience I learned lies can save me sometimes. But In any other case I like to be honest all time.

I believe a small lie can break any kind of relationship or the trust from other person. Also, in the society they don’t trust dishonesty people. So, I feel always stay with truth and honesty that can last forever and make good bond with people.
