White lies come back to bite you

By | September 23, 2017

Tomato didn’t like Potato, and potato didnt like tomato. Though they never dare to declare an open war, I was “brilliant” enough to understand the cold war happening between them. They cannot be blamed on starting the cold war as being brought up in a competitive climate.

Growing them together was really tough for me. With some ups and downs both of them were nourished in a decent way. I took extra care not to hurt the ego of any of them. Whenever I have to take a special care on any one of them due to xyz reasons, I was forced to keep my eyes shut towards the dark face of the other one. Many times somehow I could escape from the verge of lies.

This time also, I was struggling. I know a lie can never rectify the problem. It may just calm down the other, but I may get tensed if a family of lies are following the first one even if those are for some good causes.

Nothing wrong would have happened with the tomato or potato with a lie to please one of them. But my wandering mind would think over and over and finally start criticizing myself. So I decided to make it guilt free. I am relieved now with the truth.

White lies are heard here and there. Even if its harmless, I wonder “wont it hurt your soul?, wont it make oneself tensed? wont your brain feel guilty?”

PS: Tomato and Potato need not be persons, could be any two contradictory things or interests in your life.

    Anything that lingers in our mind definitely affects us …so eventually the freedom of truth or silence, feels the easier choice, I think.

    Good. There are always indifferences as no person may be alike. Its all about getting along as long as the souls aren’t hurt

    If you make your bed, you must lie on it. So if it is a white lie said, then suffer the consequences. At least, you will think before repeating it the next time.
