For instance, if you fabricate about where you spent your Friday night last week, and then another friend questions you what it was like, you will have to create another fake story up. You will have to lie again.

And someone else will eventually say, “Wait, did they open that street now? I heard it was closed until…” or some other divulging bit of information, and you will have to create another fabrication again.

From that moment on, rather than just telling the truth from your memory, you will have to recall the “story” you fabricated, and the next story you faked to cover the first lie you told. That is a lot of work.

But in the end, you will feel clean and powerful because you have decided to do the correct thing.

After telling the first truth, the next one will be easier

Saying the truth needs practice. Every time you tell the truth, it strengthens you for making the truthful and right thing the next time. Each truth-telling gets easier, until saying the truth comes natural for you.

Your truth encourages others to say the truth

You become a good example. When acquaintances, friends or strangers perceive that you walk taller, have self-confidence, and lots of friends because of being completely honest, they will attempt to follow your behavior.

Additionally, your being honest makes it easier for other people to tell the truth with you, and it is through acknowledging these truths - even like small ones as bad breath that constricts you from being close to other people you would like to - that you can create changes to fulfill a lot of things you dream to complete in life.

You have to live with yourself

People sometimes question “Who will know?” regarding telling lies and stealing things. The answer is: you will know. You will have a bad perception about yourself. You won’t have respect for yourself.

Because of human nature, it’s impossible for every person to tell the truth. But if you work hard, and are caring and gentle and kind when speaking the truth, you will have more friends, popularity, and wealth in your personal life that you cannot now perceive.

And that is the truth.
