They Either Have Character Or They Are A Character,
You be the judge.
Character: the mental and moral qualities distinctive to an individual.
In my estimation based on 47 years of earthy experience,
There are essentially two types of people in this world,
- those who have character
- and those who play act as if they do, but don’t.
Which is to say, there are those who have character and those who are a character.
They aren’t the same because they don’t speak the same language and look nothing alike.
Behavioral patterns never lie!
Although some people will do their best to hide their lack of character for fear of being exposed.
The best way to identify a person of poor character is to,
1) Listen to how they talk about themselves.
2) Listen carefully to every word and take mental notes or write it down.
3) Then allow them enough time to unravel their own story because they can never maintain their narrative.
(There’s just too many lies for them to ever remember.)
This is how you catch a narcissist and sociopath because the lies they weave and even tell themselves are too numerable for them to ever remember, let alone consistently keep together.
A morally strong person will freely admit their shortcomings and won’t need to defend themselves because their actions and words speak the same language. Their actions clearly define the words they speak, leaving no room for misinterpretation.
A morally ethical person’s story is always consistent, and so much so that their words and actions will also tell the same consistent story.
This isn’t to say they don’t make errors in judgement,
But when they do, they’ll make the necessary effort to make changes so that no one is confused as the kind of person they actually are.
This is why a person of character is rarely, if ever, caught stumbling over their own words because there isn’t anything to hide.
Because the truth is always easy to remember!
So I want to end with a poem to solidify why a lie will always lead to another lie until that person has been found insane. 🤯
Now The Poem:
By so called reputable people we so often are misled
And one lie leads to another lie as we often have heard said
And to cover up for one lie another lie you must tell
‘Tis a thorny path to heaven, but an easy path to hell.
One lie leads to another lie that always is the case
Your first lie for deception and your second to save face
And when you are faced with the truth the truth you will deny
And to lie to you comes easy, so you tell another lie.
One lie leads to another lie if what you say is untrue
Then another lie you must tell and your lies won’t stop at two
But the truth of guilt will free you though the truth can be hard to speak
And to lie is always easy and ’tis easy to be weak.
Look at ex President Bill Clinton to millions of people he lied
When his affair with Monica Lewinsky in public he denied
Had he told the truth in the first place of guilt he would have set himself free
But he took for him the easy option and he lied quite easily.
One lie leads to another lie and to more lies that will lead
And to cover for the lies you’ve already told a good memory you need
And though the truth at times is hard to speak the truth will serve you best
For the truth will always ring true in a lie detector test.
