I don't know how to live a lie or what it means to do so, but I'm shamefully good at telling them. (And hearing truths is so good, especially when they prove one's stupidity and ignorance, but giving a truth is damn harder than anything else you could do )
It worse to make a promise because you make someone believe and hope. It is the worse feeling ever when someone you truly cares about breaks one so I'd rather get a lie, to be honest. I know what its like to live a lie and if it means making people happy and keeping the peace, I'm fine with it .
It's my life now, living a lie to keep the peace... but sometimes sacrifices need to be made if you don't like confrontation and want to keep your tiny world that you barely have a hold on, peaceful. I'm learning to ignore though
I know, Pikachu is gah, I want to hug the little guy
There's no such thing as a perfect lie, just like there's no certain truth. Every lie you tell will have some amount of truth, no matter how infinitesimal, hidden away in it; it's up to the other person to pull it out. You can learn a lot from being lied to, and you can use truth to hide all kinds of awful lies.
The world's rather interesting that way sometimes.
