Be Truthful , It Pays

Sometime ago, I was asked by my grandpa to buy a balm on my way back from work. I forgot totally to get the balm and I remembered immediately reaching for the handle of the door...I said oh shit. As at that point, I was thinking whether to lie or not, but something said to me. It said speaking the truth will never kill you. You know, you are a man of integrity and your core values is important to you. Without hesitation, I told him, I forgot and he said no problem. Then I got it the other day.

In life, we have the power to control our minds and feed it with what is right. We should learn how to be truthful always. If I had lied, I would have used lies upon lies to cover lies but the truth set me free and I have a peace of mind. Even, I have noticed I found it difficult to work with companies or organization that lack integrity. I don't like it because the end result isn't always good. No matter how much we are not truthful, the truth will surely prevail. Learn how to be truthful, make it an habit.

However, there were times in the past too, that I wasn't truthful. I was finding it difficult to judge between lies and speaking the truth and sometimes deceived myself. I had this wrong philosophy that, lying is not the way but saying the truth sometimes get hurts. The truth never hurts. Build yourself to that stage, have values. Your values will guide you during hard times. Thank you for reading!
