The truthful & untruthful worlds.

I believe most of us are living in two different worlds at one time. When we are out, we live in the untruthful world but when we are back home, we are truly ourselves. Shall we tell the truth or shall we not!

You might be unhappy at times but when you see somebody important, you behave as you are happy. Is it good for yourself? May be not because you have to exert yourself and pretend to be pleasant when you are not. Without realising, you develop tension and become more stressful. So, by the time you return home you become a wild animal to the family and that's where you become your true self. I had seen ladies who were sweet and charming while working outside, but actually they are fierce tigresses at home. Don't ever judge a book by its cover.

You are being approached by an aggressive salesperson, who has presented his product well. You know the benefits are good but you can't afford to buy. Instead of telling the truth, you prefer to lie by saying the product is not good. I am sure all you readers must had done these many times before. Right? One thing for sure , I always offer positive compliments to those I meet, be they the truth or not. I like saying, "You look wonderful" or "You are sweet". Whether they are feeling wonderful, sweet or not, the power of those words could create magic in them. You may consider those as white lies, which we have to live with in our world of truthfulness and untruthfulness at the same times.

"Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy." This happiness quote by Thich Nhat Hanh
