Saturday Night For The Freethinker: Telling The Truth And NOTHING But The Truth!

Why do people lie so much? Hiding, convoluting, hurting each other, and then, lying again.

It’s annoying for me, the lying, the fantasies that people create, invent and imagine, for one reason or another.

I rather the harsh truth on my face than a “compassionate” lie behind my back. It’s much easier to tell the truth than a lie. It has less complications and makes you free.

Believing in God or not, being religious or not, that doesn’t make you a better or worse person. Look at this “wonderful” cyclist I used to admire, a lot: Lance Armstrong, an atheist who cheated his entire career to get ahead. He had the guts to say the following… “I hope I would be judged on whether I had lived a true life”. Really?!

5 Things I Love About Hypocrites

    1. Hypocrites have “taught” me to be more careful about trusting so easily.

    2. They have shown me that the world can be beautiful without them in my life.

    3. I am stronger because of their hypocrite self-righteous judgement.

    4. I love it that these people get offended by the truth.

    5. I have learned to appreciate and love the people around me who are truthful, straightforward honest and never deceive me.

 

The cause of hypocrisy originally stems from insecurity.

Selfishness is a form of insecurity because an overly selfish person needs to take advantage of or withhold resources from others, since they don’t believe they can live their best life being generous and honest.

 

That implies that they have less trust in their ability to live a comfortable life, meaning they are insecure about their skills.

According to this logic presented, hypocrisy really only originates from insecurity if the two mains causes are insecurity and selfishness.

“People dislike hypocrites because they unfairly use condemnation to gain reputational benefits and appear virtuous at the expense of those who they are condemning –when these reputational benefits are in fact undeserved,”

Explains psychological scientist Jillian Jordan of Yale University, first author on the research.
