I lie about lots of things, particularly when I don't want to offend someone or let them down.

'Thanks for that gift [insert here], I really like it!' I lie occasionally.

'I'll be there in 10 minutes. ' Yeah right. If I ride me bike Schleck speed.

'Hey dude, what's been happening?' a distant friend asks me on Facebook.'Love to chat dude, but I'm really busy.' Yeah right. I'm on facebook. Enough said.

At a social. To excuse myself from a clingy person: 'I better be going soon' Translation: I really, really don't want to talk to you.

Or about leaving a social--sorry guys, I have heaps of work to catch up / I need to get some sleep -- and then I go on Facebook or go home and watch a movie. Pathetic.

'What do you think of my new dance move/ new sound beat? I really like it! Avoidance tactics. I've got other things to do.

My mum has often asked me to do something straight away (ever had that experience?) And I say, 'yeah, yeah for sure.' An hour later… job still not done. Sure, I 'meant' to get in to done soon, but forgot. And here's the catch: I forgot because my priorities are more important than my mum's priorities. That's why I 'forgot'.

This list could go on. But the key thing here is that whether I've lied 'little' or big--I need to fess up to the person I lied to. What do you reckon? Click here to see part2 of Confession.
