Important Advice

I'm a man who is in his sixties.

As I reflect on my school days, it would have been nice to be told the following:

"If you tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything."

How many of us went through life, thinking up all kinds of lies and stories, to cover up the truth about various matters?

I would dare to say that many of us would be in a different situation than we are today. Whether we are having health problems, financial problems, family difficulties, telling the truth does eliminates a lot of difficulty and it prevents stress and worry.

Do yourself a favor and write that quote down- "If you tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything."

Pass it out to ten of your friends or others and have them pass it out to more of their friends. Pretty soon, it will spread like wildfire and people might start changing their viewpoint about the truth.

Who knows? It might sink through to our leaders and it will bring shame to those who have been causing much heartache to the many senior people out here, who have the truth locked up in our heads. Good luck.

Thank you for this comment! It is the absolute truth, and something we should all remember. Too late to go back, but we can certainly put it to use in our golden years.
Have a nice day and thanks again!

IT PAYS TO BE TRUTHFUL !

YES RICK, YOU SAID IT ! PEOPLE OFTEN INDULGE IN WHAT IS CALLED INNOCUOUS LIES TO SAVE A SITUATION. THEY INTERPRET AND DEFEND IT AS BEING PRAGMATIC.

BUT THEN, AS TIME GOES ON YOU DON'T REMEMBER OR RATHER TEND TO FORGET THE LIES YOU TOLD OTHERS, WITH WHOM YOU INTERACT. THE RESULT IS THAT YOU FIND YOURSELF IN VERY EMBARRASSING SITUATIONS WHERE THE LIES ONCE TOLD BY YOU ACT AGAINST YOUR OWN INTERESTS AND LABEL YOU AS AN UNTRUSTWORTHY PERSON. THE LIES WHICH YOU INITIALLY THOUGHT WOULD SAVE YOU FROM CERTAIN SITUATIONS OF DISADVANTAGE ACTUALLY END UP GIVING YOU HEART BURNS !

LIKE YOU, I AM ALSO JUST PAST 60 AND MANY OF THOSE WHO COME ACROSS ME FOR THE FIRST TIME CAN'T BELIEVE MY AGE WHEN I REVEAL IT TO THEM. WHEN THEY FURTHER PROD ME ON IT, I TELL THEM IT IS THE DISCIPLINED LIFE, BEING OPENHEARTED AND NOT BEING OVERAMBITIOUS WHAT HELPS ME LOOK YOUNGER.

I ALWAYS TELL THEM, 'LESS BAGGAGE, MORE COMFORT' AND THE BAGGAGE INCLUDES UNTRUE POSTURES TOO !
