Lying is something that takes place in our lives almost on a daily basis. We all cannot say that we have not lied at one time in our lives or the other. But yet most of us place great value in honesty. When we take a look at the society we find ourselves, we get to see that lies are more accepted these days, yet we keep stating how bad it is to lie. It is so common to now that people know that someone will lie at one point in time in their lives and yet we accept it. We expect people to lie when we take a look at their online profile, we expect athletes to lie and even accept them when they comeback. When it comes to lying about having an affair in a relationship that has been happening like forever. It now seems like, though we don’t like lies and we know it happens around us, we don’t seem to raise an eyebrow any longer.
When you take for example a case where a celebrity or a sport athlete was caught to have been lying for years, it then begs the question, “Can we say that lying is part of their success story? In the first place why should these celebrity lie? Is it that lying is what makes their life to have the fun and the fame it has? Or is it that the pressure that comes with their career is what pressures them into lying?
