Unfortunate. It is incredibly hard to break the habit of lying.
Lying is saying something with the intent of creating a false belief or impression. It’s an attempt to get someone to believe something that is not true.
But at what cost?

Discover your own truth; it will set you free, even if it hurts!

A few days ago I came across a name of a person from a very long time ago.
Now I'm not very good with names, but I do have a photographic memory.
Meaning that I do remember, faces and events, times and places.
When I did came across this name a light went off!
Could it be? Certainly not, this was over 25 years ago. This person already much older then I at that time. But this face look so familiar to me that I knew who it was right way.

This is our story at that time I truly admired this person. I can across this person when I was still in colleges upgrading my art.
This person was a teacher in another class. A friend of mine had intruded us and we connected right way. We had to love of art.
I was asked by this person if I could help teach a class with her at this community centre it would help with my schooling as well. This was a program that was paid for by a grant from the government.
I was so excited my first opportunity to teach what I loved to do and under someone that I admired.

Every Wednesday off I went to teach this class of 8 people.
I knew I would never get paid for this, but as I was told it would help with my grades.
Upon which we all did a art show with our students at our City Hall it was a great location for our show. All of the student were told to bring three of their own best items to sale and this would be bring great exposure.
A week after this event took place. I was told that the government had cut off the grant and we could not longer teach our class.
It was a great disappointed to us all.
With is a few weeks this person also left the college. They were moving across the country. ( not a note not a goodbye or her is where I'll be )
I never did get that credit towards my college degree but I have never forgotten this person either.
I my heart I was helping for the love of art.

As I stated this name that face much older of course but I know this person.
I decided what the heck I have nothing to lose. So I contacted this person and I apologize in advance if it was the wrong person.

Got this lovely email back saying.
"So glad you found me and yes it is I" you can follow me me here at this social site.
Amazing the right person!
My sweet memory can be a give most time other times it's a curse!

I decide to reconnect with this person to check what she had been up to all of these years.
I found out allot more, maybe I should not have.
She travelled the world around that same time that our grant money came in for our classes, there I saw photos and on one of them it even states " The things one can do when you find FREE MONEY!
What? Did she even think that after all of these years that this lie would go undetected?
Maybe she was thinking that after so long no one who think about it!
Now the person that I had admired for so long the truth does come out with time, with time there will always be someone who may remember.

Psychologists call these people compulsive or psychopathic liars. They tell lies even when they don’t feel they have to. Everybody lies, but few understand what lying is, what it does, and how to stop it.

I hope she comes clean. It hurts a lot when someone lies to us. I know someone who lied to me and it hurts a lot, but the LORD will bring everything into the light.

Yes.. I know I can not fix the issue but just to say sorry I lie and used all of you, would be nice to hear it. Now on the other hand I can not longer ever trust the person again old or not old and tell you the truth I may not even keep in touch like old times.

For some people they lie so easily with no guilt. I think they learn it when they are young and by the time they are adults it is second nature.

Mark I can not even think how one can keep the same stories straight and trying to remember to whom you said what and at what time and place! That could be a very stressful way of living. But in this case it came with some very nice benifts.

Wow so not only did the person steal from the students but from the government with a false lie to get a grant. No wonder it's hard to get grants now, they have gotten burn too much.

It is destinies way to assure that her consciousness will be held accountable. Life has a way of taking care of such matters.

Meaningful share, thanks ORourkeDesigns. If we tell the truth we have no burden to carry, nothing to remember to impinge on our conscience. I don't lie but avoid inconvenient questions. It is sad people lie for short term gains hardly realizing our journey is forever. I believe in karma, cause and effect - siva
