Relationships are ruined by lying.

If you've ever been lied to, you understand how difficult it can be to trust someone again. You can't help but wonder why a friend or family member would be so unkind to you.


So if you lie, even though you believe no one will ever find out, you almost clearly create a layer of hurt throughout your relationship.
