Justin Luna Eng 90 September 25, 2015 Have you ever wondered why we lie? Is it to make ourselves look good or is it because it's too embarrassing to tell the truth? I believe everyone lies in one way or another and that not all lies are intentionally told to cause harm. In fact, lying sometimes might be the best approach when it comes to protecting our privacy and ourselves. The story I have chosen is Stephanie Ericsson’s The Ways We Lie, and it covers the different ways that we lie to each other and why we do it.
I just fumbled around with some stuff to pass the time. I despise being alone with adults while their having conversations. Because then you 're stuck there forever and it never seems to end. We eventually went back to my grandmother’s house. Me and mom were supposed to go see Mike and Angie.
Recently my friend found out after 11 years that one of his kids weren’t his. That white lie did more harm than good. I believe that something so sensitive like that should never happen.

I always thought I was an honest person, but once I delved into honesty I realized I needed to desperately cultivate this virtue. Firstly, I realized that I was not truly honest with myself because I would make excuses for my faults. For example, I tell always myself that I’m too busy to go to the gym or to read this book, but the reality is that I’m just being lazy and making excuses for my laziness. This week I had to confront myself and understand that there is so much more I could be doing with my time. Additionally, I realized that I was not being honest with some of my friends.
I just wish I had my parents back. If only I could start over and tell them that I respect their decision to keep me home. I would tell them I would stay home and spend time with them. I would say to them that I love them and will spend weekends at home instead of going out. If only I could start over and not let them leave me.
I know this must be really hard for you, but I promise I’ll try my best to treat you the way I used to, as if nothing ever happened. That is, with a little help of course.” I wanted everything to be as normal as it could be. I didn’t want anyone to be upset because I didn’t say or do what I ordinarily would’ve. I needed people to tell me who I was before things took a turn for the worst, to help me remember so that no one would be left
I am sorry… it wasn't my fault ” in a depressing tone it was something I never knew my voice could do he said “ I don't want to hear it whatever what is done is done we can move on until you become mature” I didn't say anything else I just dropped it I could not argue with him I know I would lose and l would be in worse trouble than what I already was in. I knew from that moment I had to make an oath with myself about how I will not tell anything that happened on July eight in two thousand and
I talked to them about it and they didn’t want me to go because there are too many “drink” their. Understand that, but I already paid for my tickets and I didn’t want to change the plans with friends. There were a lot of people drinking, but we didn’t drink or anything. We were there to have a good time and to listen to great music. Not to get into trouble.
