How beautiful a word OR is!!!  You know there is a choice when you see OR.  And how wonderful it is to have a choice!  And how even more wonderful it is to know that you have a choice!!!

What has always been a difficult choice for me is either to live a lie OR to die.  Well, I might not actually “die” living the truth… that would be hyperbole!!!

So yes, it’s always been a difficult choice but because I do not want to die before my death, I usually need my lies – white lies, yellow lies, red lies…. lies.

Lies help me to go to sleep at night.

Lies help me to cope better with the uncertainty of what my “life” has come to be.

Lies help me to look forward to a better day tomorrow… and so I look forward to another day.

If it weren’t for the lies, I would have died a long ago – I would have died of hopelessness, I would have died hopeless.

    Wow. This really got me thinking. There is so much credit given to lies here. Is it lies or hope? Is it lies or staying positive? Is it lies or dwelling on the silver lining? Is it lies or faith? Is it lies or something better? Thanks for sharing and provoking my thoughts. Have a wonderful day.
