1. I’m ok or It’s ok
this is a time-worn lie that we are still using up until today, to conceal things up, to pretend that we are not affected by certain issues, or to portray that we are ” so good at keeping things up”.
Cryptic words mostly used by women.
This is usually partnered by a fake smile and escape strategies.
Well, I think there’s nothing wrong with saying ” I’m ok or it’s ok ” unless you really mean it and you don’t want to make things a bit complicated for you.
but the thing is sometimes we are getting used to it that other people might take advantage our passivity and this is a self-torture as well.There are times that we need to be bold and honest with what we really feel about things.
2.I’m happy for you
Same as the first one, this is a time-worn lie that conceals bitterness over other people’s advantages.
This lie can be awkward without faking a smile.
We do love to make people happy and avoid drama.Remember bitterness is a poison to our heart.A simple way of living a happy life is to stop comparing yourself to other people and be happy with what you have.
When you see your friend or other people prosper and you rejoice with them with honesty and love and you don’t feel envy even if you have a greater need. Besides bitterness won’t change your situation either, so choose to be happy.
3. I don’t care
In an optimistic view, this lie can be beneficial in some ways, ignoring negative things and problems is a way that you can lessen your anxiety. Sometimes you really need to say it to prevent issues.
but there are times that we need to be sensitive to what other people around us might feel.
You can often hear this as an expression.
4. I like it, or I love it
Well, you really care about what other people might feel and you don’t want to hurt their feelings.Even if you don’t like your friend’s new Girlfriend or your Wife ‘s new recipe, on the other hand, we should be honest and be bold to what you really feel.Make them understand your point of view besides, “Wounds from a friend can be trusted, but an enemy multiplies kisses. Prov 27:6
These are some list of lies that you might be telling today, sometimes we are not aware of the things that we do and say and realized it once it comes out of our mouth.
We need to be mindful of the things we say because Jesus said;
“What goes into someone’s mouth does not defile them, but what comes out of their mouth, that is what defiles them.”Matt 15:11
But the things that come out of a person’s mouth come from the heart, and these defile them.
