I must say that I always try to be as honest as possible. Sometimes if I am ashamed of something I did I will try to cover it up, but not really by lying, but by not saying the truth. Like, if I went over to a friends house but didn't want people to know, I'd say "Oh, I hung out in Houston last night" instead of at so and so's house. It's wrong, I know, but I can't help myself sometimes!! but otherwise, I ALWAYS try to be as honest and truthful as I possibly can be, because with lies, it's always going to come out and the worse lie you tell the worse it makes you look. So just always be honest. Knowing to always be honest also really helps you to stay in line yourself, because you don't want to do anything you wouldn't want to be truthful about!
