Ok, I have to say right off, a fat Valerie Bertinelli is just wrong. How could that ever have been? But the truth is, Valerie gained enough weight to become a spokesperson for Jenny Craig.
In a recent commercial Valerie can be seen wearing a white lab coat, spouting off proof from a nationwide clinical study about how effective Jenny is. If you haven’t seen the commercial, don’t worry, you never will. You know why? Somebody made them pull it. Why? Because it is a flat, outright lie; a big fat Jenny Craig lie, no study, all fabricated, and they got caught.
Dishonesty in advertising is epidemic. Who can you believe? With the Toyota recalls and all the rest that goes with that, the consumer is left wondering who’s telling the truth.
If it stopped there it would be ok. But dishonesty and lying is epidemic in relationships as well. Husbands lie to wives, wives lie to husbands, and ultimately the truth comes out.
In any relationship, especially a married relationship, absolute trust is essential. It’s like oxygen in a room. It’s essential. If I don’t trust you, I can’t relate to you. And if I can’t relate to you, I can’t live with you. It’s just that simple. So, if you’re tempted to shave the corners, wear a white lab coat and spout off what clinical studies prove, and you know you’re lying, just opt for the truth. It’s that simple.
Let’s tell each other the truth. Sometimes it’s painful, but trust me, it costs far less in the long run. You can’t build a life, success, a career, or anything enduring on a lie. Come out from behind the mask, get real, become transparent, and tell the truth.
