Lies are a very interesting thing to write. Particularly since we, myself included, tend to assume that anything written down is true. There are some members of the cast which are habitual liars, and others, like Warren, that are TYPICALLY truthful, until it really counts.
Personally, honesty is hugely important to me. A defining moment for me as a kid was when I told a blatant lie to my parents, blaming something on my sister that they had witnessed me do. I still recall them sitting me down and saying, “Robin, it is your choice to lie or be honest. However, if you choose to be a liar, you must accept that we will no longer trust you.” That concept, that nobody would trust me, had a major impact on me. To this day, I still consider honesty a major personal value. On my “Personal Constitution” the first line is “1. To be Open, Honest, and Nurturing.”
Do you have a set of guiding principals or personal values? What qualities are at the top of your list?
