Friends Lie To Each Other, See What Happens Next

Is it easier to “embellish the truth” than admit not everything is as great in our lives as it seems? Jay Shetty reminds us that when we lie to our friends, we’re not only cheating them out of the chance to be there for us, but we’re cheating ourselves out of the deeper, supportive relationships we could have.

Watch the video to hear Jay’s advice on how vulnerability helps GROW friendships. Everyone has scars. Everyone has wounds. Don’t hide yours.

The term build it and it will come is false… BE IT and it will come! My name is Wil aka Hollywood Wil and I have been down, confused, depressed, lost, and didn’t know which way was up. Believe it or not watching Jay and other motivational speakers helped me a great deal. If you are not comfortable enough to talk just start watching videos until you are comfortable enough to talk to someone.

I hope you enjoy not only the videos but my entire Vlog 🙂


  1. Jay.. I think you missed at least one thing about honesty.. Be careful who you tell it to.. There are people out there that look and act the part of being a friend or family member.. If you tell the wrong person honesty they may use it against you..

  2. I love this video Jay! Although I don't think being honest makes you a good person, I think it's the first step to becoming one. It's the minimum requirement for any individual to enter into a healthy relationship with anyone but especially with themselves.

  3. Let's tell the truth to people. When people ask, 'How are you?' have the nerve sometimes to answer truthfully. You must know, however, that people will start avoiding you because, they, too, have knees that pain them and heads that hurt and they don't want to know about yours. But think of it this way: If people avoid you, you will have more time to meditate and do fine research on a cure for whatever truly afflicts you.
