43. DO YOU THRIVE ON TELLING LIES? - Jack’s Life Lessons For Teenagers - For A Better Tomorrow - Jack Lookman #teenageinspiration #Irekabiti


A valuable lesson in life that teenagers should take away is the danger of feeding-off lies. Although it can seem alluring to lie to people or even to yourself in order to escape trouble or obtain an advantage temporarily, the long-term effects can be severe and far-reaching. Firstly, falsehoods damage one’s ability to be trusted by others, and oneself, in relationships. Healthy relationships are built on a foundation of trust, which is harmed when you lie to yourself or to others. Any genuine relationship needs trust as its foundation; without it, bonds grow brittle and may even end in total collapse.

Living off lies also undermines one’s moral fiber and integrity. Being truthful and honest in all facets of life, even when it is  difficult or uncomfortable, is, what it means to have integrity. Prioritizing dishonesty over truthfulness results in the loss of integrity and reputation, which erodes one’s respect for both oneself and other people.

Feelings of shame and remorse are common outcomes of living a life based on lies. Even if you are initially successful in tricking people, lying can have a negative impact on your conscience and cause inner anguish and emotional distress. Your quality of life may eventually suffer as a result of these emotions’ effects on your mental health, and general wellbeing.

Furthermore, lying always catches up with you and may end up having unfavorable long-term effects. The consequences of living off lies can be severe and far-reaching, including being entangled in a web of lies, irreparably harming relationships, and possibly facing legal action. It is important to understand that every action has repercussions, and lying just delays the final reckoning.

Lying a lot can also result in self-deception, where you trick yourself into believing lies in order to support your behavior or soothe your ego. But self-deception does nothing but keep you from facing the truth, hindering personal development, and keeping you from becoming self-aware. It is imperative to face the reality, despite its discomfort, and pursue genuineness in every facet of one’s existence.

Give priority to being honest and genuine in all of your encounters rather than living off of lies. Accept the importance of telling the truth as a tenet in your life, even if it is  difficult or uncomfortable. Develop frank and honest communication in your interactions with others, in order to earn their trust and respect. Recall that leading a honest moral life, in which your deeds are consistent with your beliefs and ideals is the path to true fulfillment and success. You open the door to real connections, personal development, and a fulfilling life when you choose truth over dishonesty.

Thank you very much for your time.
