People feel that lies are the easy way out in a relationship; with lies, they believe they can get away with anything. But truth be told, lies are disrespectful to your partner and would kill the trust in your relationship.
When you can’t tell your partner the truth then it shows that there’s something wrong with your relationship.
Whether it’s a major lie to cover up what you did or it’s a little white lie, it’s unhealthy for your relationship and below are some of those lies you just shouldn’t tell.
1. LIES ABOUT YOUR LOCATION
This is a common lie many couples tell without minding. Some partners lie about where they are going to or where they have been and this is unfair. You might call it a little white lie, but in all honesty, this is deceit and misleading someone you ought to gain their trust.
2. LIES ABOUT HOW YOU FEEL
Some partners lie about their feelings a lot. Telling a lie that you are sick to avoid being with your partner or going out with them is unfair; it’s better you tell the truth and let your partner know the real reason why you won’t oblige to their wish.
Secondly, the lie of claiming to be okay when you clearly aren’t. A lot of people tell this lie and it’s an unfair thing to do to your partner. You don’t expect your partner to be a mind reader and know what’s really wrong with you.
3. LIES ABOUT BEING BUSY
Some people also tell their partner this cheap lie just to avoid being with them. So many people use this lie against their partners if they don’t want to do some tasks which they ought to. Your partner would feel used when he finds out that you weren’t really busy but you were trying to avoid a task.
4. FINANCIAL LIES
People tell their partners lies about their finances all the time. From how much they earn to certain expenses they procured and all manner of lies and tales about money. Money is a weighty subject and could cause big frictions when the truth finally comes out. When dealing with financial matters, try to be transparent and honest.
5. LIES ABOUT WHOM YOU WERE WITH
Some people tell lies to their partner of whom they were with, so as to avoid misunderstanding. They lie about being with a male colleague when they were with a female, or lie about being with a friend when they aren’t. Such lies never do any good in the long run and are never healthy for your relationship.
6. I DON’T CARE
This is another common lie partners tell each other, probably during an argument. This lie is disrespectful and would surely hurt your partner’s feelings; it should be avoided at all costs.
Lies may look like they provide an easy way out, but in reality, they don’t; they only plant seeds of disharmony, distrust, poor communication and other things that would only harm your relationship.
