A pragmatic approach that more people should consider before using the, "it's online, so it doesn't matter" way of doing things. Our behavior on and off line is our greatest responsibility to our integrity.
This is an excellent page.
You hit the nail on the head there.
People who lie constantly often believe their own lies, so no wonder they seem credible sometimes. One lie is never enough though because more often than not, a liar will 'trip' themselves up by forgetting what it was that they had said, and have to fabricate another to cover up their mistakes.
...and...isn't it laughable when liars seem to imagine that the rest of us have short memories? LOL
Yep, totally what I meant about this not being dog years or soap opera time :P
This is a very good point. I've found from personal experience that it is much more effective to prove your goodwill and changed ways when you aren't trying to do what you think people will find convincing. It has to come from you and mean something to YOU first before others will truly believe.
If you're doing things to appear a better person, it is transparently phony.
I think in general it shouldn't be about proving to others that you're a good person, it's all about yourself. Your words are very wise and make me think of my past.
It goes back to a saying I learned while studying Hitler. "If you say something loud enough and long enough, people will start to believe it's the truth." The ability to hide behind a fake picture, a fake name, and a fantasy world makes it worse.
Good One IIW
Individuals and Business, both are a resource at different ends of the string of life. Burn both ends with incredulous and unreasonable idiosyncratic personality traits acquired through low self esteem, nihilistic surrealism or just plain narcissism and you lose the game. And there are many ways to play the game of life. But the utmost reasonable one, regardless of any individual foible or trait of fanciful, fantastic forlorn falsification, is to simply just be true to self and create no alternate avenue of surreptitious lifestyle that would compromise your individual credibility.
Hope that makes sense.
I was accused of lying in the past by people who didn't know me well. They said I said things about myself to be a goth and be pitied to be liked. Thing is, I said the truth and they didn't know me from childhood so how could they know? Sometimes people get accused of lying with unfairness. However I know the situation that happened recently, and here you got the proves. You have to be really careful what to say and do, even on-line, because even if it's just a site, people get hurt for real.
