Does this word even have a meaning in today’s society?
You have a situation that comes up and instead of handling it with truth, you decide it’s better to fabricate a story about the legitimacy of the event in order to make the need seem more urgent than the priorities already established.
In other words, you lied.
Where did you learn that skill? And when did it become common practice for you? Have you fine tuned your delivery so it becomes flawless?
And do you no longer have a sense of morality that guides you?
Yeah. I’ve lied before too. Doesn’t mean I can’t teach others about integrity.
