As John F Kennedy said, "The great enemy of the truth is very often not the lie, deliberate, contrived and dishonest, but the myth, persistent, persuasive and unrealistic." Truth fears no questions.
Lies always catch up with you and then you're shamed-faced. Taking responsibility and telling the truth always has a better outcome.
