“The truth will come out.”
Yes it will. And when it does, the little fortress of deception that one has built up comes crashing down painfully on one’s head, and all the people that one was trying to help now despise that one. Even the people that one actually did help.
Lesson learned. Finally. Only took me seventeen years, one month, and three weeks. Don’t lie. One, it’s a sin. Two, it only makes things worse. Deception is always wrong, because you will always be found out.
