Love the Way You Lie

Lie.I love the way people lie. I think it is one of the greatest characteristics people have and most don’t admit it. We all lie for different reasons and it is quite amazing how we lie consciously and subconsciously. Sure, you might say to yourself that you don’t lie or you don’t lie as much. But don’t get me wrong. Lying is not a bad or a good thing. I lie all the time. It is not as bad as people seem to be.

We lie to protect our love ones. We don’t tell them what really goes on with our lives to prevent them getting too worried about our lives. They already have too many problems to deal with. Adding ours would only add more burden. We lie to them, so we don’t rob them from their happiness. If we can avoid explaining about our downfalls and see them smile, we don’t mind lying. The end result is bigger if we commit the lie, thus, we rather pick that tough road.

We lie to hide our true self. We don’t have to make an impression just to show how we are. Sometimes, we don’t need the recognition or expect something in return. We do things for others because we care for them. People can figure out on their own for the good things we do for them. Besides, when they find it out, they would appreciate us even more.

We lie to make other’s smile. Most of us would smile and laugh when one of our favorite nephews performs the sliding thumb trick. Sure, we already know how the trick is done and probably seen it for the hundredth time. But we choose to lie to show how much we acknowledge and appreciate the efforts done by another person. Life is not always about figuring out the truth. It is what you do with it is the most important. If we are able to lie and doing so would give a sense of  joy for another person, why not lie about it? It doesn’t hurt anyone.

Why WordPress?

I will dedicate today’s post on explaining to you all why I post in WordPress. It is important my readers acknowledge the reasons behind it, so my readers have some sort of understanding why I write the way I do. I blog for two reasons. No, not three or five. Two. I understand it’s an awkward number given how it is between numbers one and three and it’s the first sucker behind number one. But, yes, two reasons.

Writing.

I dislike writing since the day I learned English. The rules are so melodramatic and absurd to the extend that I never was able to grasp it. Many talented individuals have advised me the more I write, the more I will improve.  I decided to submit to this ideology and experiment on it. When I approached WordPress and I read a post by Mostly Bright Ideas called “Pressed for Time,” I read the numerous responses on his piece, and I knew blogging would be the best tool to determine how well I write. I decided to evaluate my performance based on the following criteria: how often I post, the number of comments, subscribers, followers, and number of Freshly Pressed.

The second reason is encouraging readers to think critically. Many of us have a strong tendency to read and not critically think or respond to it. The ability to comment on posts allow readers the chance to respond and let their voices heard about certain ideas/topics. It also allows everyone to see that people from all over the world might have similar views or different views based on life experiences and cultural background.

Now that you know my reasons for blogging, why do you post on WordPress?
