                An argument breaks out between you and a stranger, the man strikes you in the face with his fist; you pull out your gun and shoot him down.

As someone who started to follow hockey only within the last year or so, I was shocked to see that fighting was permitted in the sport. Recently, I went to a hockey game and seeing the fighting up close rattled me. I couldn’t believe that no one was stopping what was happening in front of me. People were punching one another and when I asked why, I was told that it was part of the game. Although it was my first time seeing a game, I didn’t understand why the fight was necessary; it doesn’t put the puck in the net.

Lying is a human reflex. It’s a way to protect ourselves from the truth, which can be hurtful. Some people lie to boost their confidence, their self-esteem. They use lies to make them look better, stronger or happier than they really are. Others lie to avoid conflicts, to conserve their private life or simply to gain time or energy. Lying can be useful to hide something we don’t want someone or everybody to know about. In fact, there are so many reasons that can push a person to lie that identifying the truth has almost become an impossible thing to do.
