Sometimes, one might say, lying is necessary, but other times, we might be better off just admitting the truth. You can try to justify your lies by convincing yourself that you're simply optimizing your truth management skills, but at the end of the day, you know deep down inside that you've been keeping the truth neatly tucked away.
