I am writing to tell you that at a young age I started to use drugs and lie to my family. Doing so has caused a great rift between myself and the people I love the most. It has caused heartache and pain almost leading to the destruction of the people that are there for you no matter what is happening in you life or the struggles you face.
Drugs and lying about drugs to your family is an extremely harmful action against the ones you love.
I will no longer be part of this, I want a healthy open honest relationship with the people I care about the most.
If you are doing this now please think about the ones you are affecting and the people you are supposed to care about the most.

This goes out to all of the 10 year old girls out there who just want to feel loved and feel like they fit in.
When I was a young girl, I began to lie. Not with bad intentions, just so that everyone to my mind was happy and not upset with me about anything. To keep the peace so to speak. Though I thought that I was doing the right thing, I instead was setting myself up for something bigger in the future. The lies made me feel bad about myself because I knew what I was doing was wrong. Yet on the other hand, everyone seemed happy. So as I got older, when things became difficult, or when the truth might hurt someone, I would make up lies to make sure that no one was feeling bad. This doesn’t work.
Sometimes the truth does hurt someone’s feelings. Sometimes there is discomfort when you tell things the way they are, but in the end, if the truth is said with a soft heart and soft word, it doesn’t need to be an evil thing. It can be a learning process for all involved.
Where it doesn’t work as I said before, is that a lie begets a lie. They take on a life of their own. It takes a lot of energy and time to keep up with lies, when the truth would have been done and over with. Lies can hurt people. Worst of all, lies will most definitely hurt you. It will hurt your self-esteem and the essence of who you really are. I know that you don’t want to end up hurting yourself inside by the build-up of all those lies you might tell. So the best thing you can do is tell the truth. Believe in yourself and what you are doing is right. Be kind with the way in which you deliver your truth. Lying hurts, the truth is freeing.
I am writing to you to explain the importance of honesty to one’s family. It is very important to be an ethical person who doesn’t lie or mislead one’s family because this will only cause distrust and hurt amongst your family members.
A person must have good personal integrity and be reliable and always available to his/her family in order to gain their respect and trust. Without any of these obligations, one will always lose in his/her family. You owe your family a life of happiness and contentment.
