A discernment between a truth and a lie

Have you ever dealt with somebody who you know that they’re lying but they’re trying to sell you on their truth? I got a guy, he’s a customer of mine and he tells me stuff all the time. I don’t doubt that some of it’s true but some of it I think, it’s hilariously false!! But Hey, he pays me, so I just let him stay entertained with himself thinking he’s got me fooled! 😂 As a matter of fact I have two customers like this! 😲 Why are people so amused with their lies? Do they truly believe the lies or do they think they’re just fooling people?

 I think sometimes people make things up in their head to assume and then dish out false information. Sometimes it’s harmless. Because it doesn’t really affect you right? But when it’s false information about you personally and who you are that’s when you have to be concerned.

In this industry that I’m working in I’m coming across a lot of people who are backbiting sneaky gossiping in it for themselves & pretending they’re for everybody else kind of people. They think they are fooling people but people know. You cannot control how people act but you sure can control how you respond to how they act.

For the majority of the people who know who I am, they know I’m transparent and I’m a straight up gal. Most of the time I will confront you and I will get to the bottom of a situation to squash it. And I will expose openly if it involves other people when necessary.

But there are sometimes we have to pause for the cause. This means there’s a purpose in everything and you have to have the right time in the right season to address the situation. because if you handle it too soon it may not even serve the purpose needed for the confrontation, and then it’s a waste of air and more drama.

I am a Blogger so I am going to write about stories that pertain to my life. I just think that sometimes when we connect with people and they tell their lies it’s on them. Eventually the truth will always come out but in the middle of the truth being told there’s a lot of damage that can be made with the false lies if it involves other people.

Use or Pray for discernment. Decide whether or not if somebody is telling the truth about themselves or if it’s about the truth of somebody else. If it seems to be gossip then that’s what it is. You should squash it immediately!! All that does is create a bunch of crap and you know what that is when you are around crap you become crap yourself!

Example: If it’s somebody giving false information about themselves that they are millionaires when they really are just common working people, then that’s on them and it’s not your concern. But when it’s somebody saying that they are a millionaire and you are a part of the organization and saying lies that you know are wrong, you should back away to protect your name.

Lies. So many tell them that you’ll never know the full truth until it’s exposed.
