*Open letter to people who tell lie to impress others*

Dear people,

It's time for a story

There was a old king and he knew the end of his life was nearing so he decided it was time to designate a successor.  Since he had sadly lost his entire family in a terrible accident, he chose to pass the throne on to one lucky child.  So he summoned children from every corner of his kingdom and asked them to visit the castle immediately.

When the children arrived, he gave each of them one little brown seed.  “I want you to plant your seed, give it sunlight and water, and take good care of it,” he said.  “In exactly six months from today, return to the castle with the plant you’ve grown.  The child who grows the most beautiful plant will be mentored by me to become the next king or queen!”

One of the lucky children who received a seed that day was a young girl named shreya .  She immediately ran home and carefully planted her seed in a pot of nutrient-rich soil, and then placed it on a well-lit windowsill.  Every day Skye watered and cared for her seed.  A few weeks later several other children in her school began bragging about their beautiful plants, but shreya’s pot was still empty.  Despite her constant care, her seed hadn’t grown at all.

Six months passed by quickly, and it was time for all the children to return to the castle to show the king the plant they had grown.  Shreya didn’t want to go with her empty pot of soil, but her parents told her to be honest about her failure.  Discouraged and dejected, Shreya listened to her parents and returned to the castle.  She stood quietly at the very back of the room where the king would be evaluating everyone’s plants, and waited to be judged.

As the king entered the room he looked amazed to see so many beautiful plants.  He then proceeded to walk from child to child admiring what they had grown.  And the closer the king got to shreya, the more her eyes welled up with tears.

The king eventually stood before her and her empty pot of soil.  “What is your name?” the king asked.

“Shreya,” she said with a whimper.

“Where is your plant, Shreya?”

Hanging her head in humiliation, Shreya took a deep breath and then looked up at the king and told the truth: “Your majesty, I planted the seed you gave me in this pot, and I gave it plenty of sunshine and water every single day, but the seed did not grow at all.  I have failed.”

Suddenly, the old king’s voice thundered throughout the hall , “Behold!  My successor!  Your next queen!  Her name is Shreya!”

Silence and confusion swept over the room as the king continued, “Six months ago, I gave everyone here a boiled brown seed that could not grow into a plant.  Only Shreya had the heart and courage to share the truth with me today.  Soon enough, she will lead our kingdom very well!”

As friends, as family members, as teammates… too often we feel the need to lie about our experiences and accomplishments, simply to make ourselves appear bigger and better than we are.  We believe that if we constantly show off the “beautiful plants” we’ve grown, others will love and respect us.  But this is far from the truth.
Lie may look beautiful as the plants but at last truth shine like sun always. Truth always wins early or later.
When we share our truths openly and honestly, not only do we build the kind of trust that opens doors to deeper relationships and real opportunities, but we also make it easier for the people we spend our lives with to be more open and honest with us, which makes every moment together healthier and more peaceful.

Thank you
