Have you ever been lied to? Have you ever been lied to and then when you found out the truth you were told “it was just a little white lie” or “I was just joking”?
Google dictionary defines “white lie” (noun) as a harmless or trivial lie, especially one told to avoid hurting someone's feelings.
Even if it’s a harmless lie, a lie is still a lie. Some lies will leave you with watery eyes… tears…. real tears. You feel horrible and in some instances even betrayed. It’s not a good feeling. As you read this, you may be thinking about a lie that was recently told to you.
Think about how you felt when you were lied to.
Think about how someone feels when you lie to them: when you tell a “little white lie” or “just joking”.
The other person that you lied to or lied about has feelings also. Remember that!
