Tell me lie and i will feel cheated or hurt. If you found out that someone is a liar, you will judge him and for sure that person will not be desirable friend. Now try to look at this from different angle, so then you will know why lies are popular and why liars can survive. As long in this world are naive and weak people, they will be excellent food for liars. Liars are sharks, and naive people are small, tasteful fishes, ready to be someone’s meal.
Reality is not beautiful fairy tale. Even when life praise you with gifts and rewards, there is always a catch. This is as cake with flies , so sweet at first sight but you can’t eat this because when fly sits there, it will be disgusting. For example, one day you finally found job . You were unemployed for a long time, and suddenly you have well paid job. Are you happy now? Now you have annoying colleagues, bitch sits with you in office and talk loudly at phone, radio is playing and you can’t stand that music, and when you go to lunch pause someone will sit at your table and brag with screaming voice about work. So your ears will pain because you can’t stand this. But you have job.
Now here are some situations, when people like to hear lies, not naked truth.
Patient who is seriously sick would like to hear that his situation with health will get better.
Woman fall in love in man, he doesn’t love her, but she wish to hear that he loves her. She would like to hear this sweet words even it is not true.
You are chubby and you want new dress, even you can’t breath, you will believe to salesman who said that you look perfect as model.
You don’t have idea about singing, but when you are in karaoke party, you wish to hear that everyone enjoyed in beautiful sound of your voice.
In the time of elections politicians will say many fake promises, and people will swallow this as candies.
Your parents will tell you that you are successfull, pretty and smart, even you don’t feel like this and this is not everytime true.
Here we come to the next point. If we wish real truth, we should ask objective people for facts. Don’t ask for real opinion someone who is crushed in you, someone who is addicted to you at financial side or someone who wants to use you for purpose. Ask someone who doesn’t know you so good, and you will get right answer, because that person is free from guilt and fear that he will hurt you.
The most resistant fans of lies are those who cannot handle the truth because they are insecure in own abilities. They need to hear sweet words because that is their wall against all troubles.
Walter is average man with average work and average life. Everything in his life is in the middle. He can’t find girlfriend because he likes those who don’t like him, and girls who would like to date with him are not desirable from his side. He prefers kind women , and he aware of open minded ladies, because they are threat to his weak self esteem.
So he started to search for a soulmate in internet. His profile page got unexpected number of women, he became popular. All women suddenly wanted to be with him.
His friend Ian laughed to him and told him this:
– Did you checked that profiles? Half of them are fake and old. Some are maybe transvestits or gays. And some of that women have double or triple pages. So, when you eliminate your fans, at the end here is maybe one or two who is real.
Walter was furious , especially when Lara, woman with beautiful photos, started to talk with him every day. She was obsessed and she followed him everywhere. After one month she was revealed as fake. Other friends said that she was woman in fifties, with two children and husband. She was ugly and Walter was not first man who was fooled with her.
Life is not love story.
The main heroes in life are not knight, princess or king. Real winners in real life are people who can take things as they are, without need to make them better in fake sense. If you can accept that your lover is sometimes grumpy, that your girlfriend is not so pretty without makeup or that your friends are not always sweet and kind, you are winner.
Otherwise, you will swallow every lie on your way, because you were not enough brave to deal with the facts.
