a stupid lie

Write about a time you screwed up – a mistake you made.

There are moments in my life where I’ve made mistakes and wish I could have taken the moment back, whether it was me not seizing the moment, regret I didn’t say something, or stand up for myself. My biggest regret was a stupid lie. I am a pretty honest person, and am transparent when lying so I was immediately caught. Worse, it was to Nick. We are proud in our relationship in the fact that we don’t fight. We’re human so we do argue, but mostly it’s just fun – like who said the movie quote correctly. After that stupid lie, we didn’t talk for a day or two. It was a huge and defining moment for me, I vowed to myself that I would never lie to Nick again. He later told me what had upset him the most wasn’t the fact that my credit card was not paid off, it was that I had lied. If I had just told the truth! And see, what stupid lie it was?
