I do believe as a young teenager lying can be important for individuals and some situations, for example I’m pretty sure most teenagers have lied to there parents at one point. Everything relies upon what your lying for. it could be an advantage or a disadvantage. In the Crucible Abigail in the book does lies commonly in the book. She deceives her uncle about what occurred in the woods. She lies commonly to attempt and ensure herself and improve the way she looks to other people. She’s trying just to make her self look like a better person. In the book Abigail also lies about the relationship she’s in. So throughout the book Abigail seems to lie commonly.
I do believe that lying is way worse than we think it just can cause numerous issues. There can be issues that Lead to worse then just telling the truth for example do you think lying to the police would make the situation better? Lying can make much more
Harm than we think. It can make somebody to turn on a friend or anyone and cause bits of gossip to be spread and that would make even worse problems. In the book, Abigail lied since she didn’t tell anyone what she did with with John. She had a affair with John and lied about it. Abigail blames Elizabeth for being a witch and just because she was blamed she could have got Elizabeth killed. She blamed her so she could try to cover her self
Abigail even still has feelings for John and she will attempt and do anything to recover his love for her back. Abigail knows what she’s doing is very wrong and she knows the consequences and she even realizes that by blaming that Elizabeth is a witch could get her killed. Abigail at this point is only lying to make her self look better and make it seem like she’s the good one. In my opinion I think lying should never be used especially in a situation that could get someone killed. All thought the book all I have noticed is mostly Abigail lies. She lies numerous all through the book. Abigail knows that what she is doing is wrong and she could get in bigger trouble for telling lies then the truth. Thats why I think lying can be used sometimes but it also depends mostly on what your lying about and the situation.
My overall opinion on lying is that it’s okay to lie about some things as long as you know it won’t hurt them or cause any more harm but if it will that lying is unacceptable and shouldn’t be done. lying is awful if used In the wrong ways, it could be vital now and again. Certain circumstances have cutoff points of the amount you should lie about, on the off chance that it is hurting or making issues to others then you shouldn’t lie. In the event that it is to help or stay away from a major issue that would just be affected decidedly it is alright now and then. In the book it is not okay because Abigail lies about witchcraft and her affairs that she didn’t tell anyone and all through the book she lies about all sorts of things. Lying did cuase mores issues between certain people in the book like John and his wife Elizabeth. Abigail's lying has also affected the young ladies. Lying is an approach to dodge issues. Particularly in the event that it is harming others or on the other hand if it’s just to improve you and the way you look and nobody else made it worse. lying is alright here and there Depending on the situation but for this situation it caused numerous issues. I for sure think that Abigail could have stayed away from numerous issues that occurred and I
Think she should have just came clean about everything she lied about but it’s her fault that she got stuck in an unfortunate situation. however for this situation she got discovered lying also. My overall thought is that lying is okay if you know it won’t hurt anyone or make more trouble and won’t put anyone in danger. Lying just all depends on how you decide to use it and what situation your in. Going of the situation in the book I believe Abigail should have just told the truth and case clean because look at her now she got caught lying and in trouble for what she has done. All she did was make the situation 100% worse. In the end do your best not to lie but if you have to it’s okay as long as It don’t hurt anyone or make bigger trouble.
