Truth Hurts but it Helps

Telling lies is obviously easier than telling the truth. 

We rather save our own asses than expose what we intend to keep. Lying is like a dreadful disease, better to prevent than cure it.

Truth and secret are two different things. Secrets are not meant to be known or seen by others. Telling secrets to others does not help sometimes and it might be one of the worst decisions to make. Unless you are telling it to the person that you trust the most and he or she can really be trusted not to spill it out to others. Well, someone like that is really hard to come by and if you do, keep that person close to you. Generally, we think twice before sharing our secrets with someone.

Truth, on the other hand, is the state of being true in accordance with reality or the fact that you believe it is true. Human starts to tell lies as early as 2 to 3 years old. It is a part of cognitive development and this is a fact. Some people lie to impress others, some spare other people's feelings and a lot of others several reasons. Clearly, people lie for their personal interest and somehow rather for others too.

In the end, it's up to you either to keep telling lies or try your best to avoid telling lies instead tell the truth. Certain truths are meant to be kept as secrets, certain are not. It is best to start developing one of the divine attributes, telling the truth. It is a great foundation that leads to a solid character. 

Just keep in mind, the truth hurts but it helps. However, never misuse the power of telling the truth. The beauty and goodness of it lie in your hand. God willing, goodness will come to you.
