Do you lie?

This morning I told my mom a white lie to keep her from knowing that my HPT was positive, because I want to tell her when I see her. But it feels SO WEIRD intentionally making my mom believe something that's not true, even for a few hours!

But I know a lot of people tell white lies all the time. What about you?

  • Apparently, I'm very bad at telling lies. Everyone says they know instantly when I'm lying. I get this look on my face and my voice goes all weird.

  • I am the worst liar in the world but I will stretch the omitting details to lead someone to believe one thing when another happened. I guess those are little white lies but I try my darndest to be a truth walker.

  • everyone lies but in this case especially dont feel bad because hearing your going to be a grandma means a lot to moms and its a huge moment for them that should be done in a special way or at the very least in person. i wont be telling my mom over the phone.

  • No, I've never seen a point. I really don't care what others think, and I would rather hurt you today with the truth than later when you find out I lied... I don't believe in "white" lies, there's no such thing... Things are either truth or lies, and frankly, lies help no one...
