Wherever possible, tell the truth, or at least don't lie. Experience tells me that this is by far definitely the best policy. Lies are usually to cover up or give an inflated impression of success or expertise, right.
People underestimate how hard it is to lie. Guess what, we have to have a good memory and eye for detail to be a convincing liar.Yeap. Bad lies are easily detected and the damage done when discovered is just not worth it.
I had this one rather funny experience of a friend where she totally forgot the original lines of her make-up story that in the end, she actually forgot who’s who and what’s what. Told ‘ya it’s not easy to lie.
So. There is no need to lie when being honest works better.
