When we go to school, our teacher tells us children should never lie to parents, but I don’t obey it all the time. I still remember the first time I lie to my mother. I told her that I need some money to buy a book.
I didn’t tell her the right money, and I ask her to give more than I need. My mother knew it,than I feel regret and say sorry. Since then, I never lie to my mother.
Telling lies is usually looked upon as an evil, because some people try to get benefit from dishonest means or try to conceal their faults. However, I thinkdespitejits_neg1ative effects,jsometimes itjisjessentialto iemigsinour dailylifei First, the liar may benefit from the lie by escaping from the pressure of unnecessary embarrassment. Meanwhile, the listener may also feel more comfortable by reasonable excuses.
For example, if a little girl’s father died in an accident, her mother would comfort her by saying “farther has gone to another beautiful land”. In such cases, a lie with original goodwill can make the cruel nice. Second thejsk lsjofJtellingJlies^jtojsome extent,canbe regard asja capacity ofcreationandjimagination.

Never think you will never be detected, when you want to tell a lie. The chances are, sooner or later, your lie witt be found out and it will then expose you to shame.
Telling a lie is morally wrong. Besides, there are many disadvantages lying in the way of a liar. First, he has to have a good memory, lest he contradicts at one time what he said in another. Second, he is always annoyed by his conscience, because he is in constant fear that his falsehood may be found out. Third, a liar is never trusted and respected by others.
The result may be that his words, even when he speaks the truth, are not believed. Fourth and the last, once a person has told a lie, he cannot help telling another in order to conceal the first, and then a third and a fourth, until lying becomes ahabit. After that, he may say something untrue even when he wishes to speak the truth.
The disadvantages resulting from telling a lie are too many to be listed. The above are just some of the obvious ones. If you want to be free from these annoyances, if you want to be a trustworthy person, never tell a lie.
