Have you ever been in a situation where you needed to lie your way out but you did
not? Yes, am sure many, many of us have been there. I am sure you were quite
surprised at what happened when you held to the truth. You felt relieved. Right? Yessss!
Therefore, if you are unsure of a story, just say you don’t know or be quiet. If you should
not indulge in something that can lead you to that moment, then avoid it altogether.
I know its easier said than done.
Secondly, knowing that you were wrong the first instance, simply go to the person you
told and acknowledge your misinformation. It would be awkward but you would be
clearing your conscience thereby getting rid of that depressed feeling and making right
something you messed up. Own up and apologize, it costs nothing.
