When did it change?
When I was growing up I was taught to tell the truth. That when I made an agreement with someone over a handshake I had no choice but to keep my word.
Somewhere in the last six decades that seems to have changed. It is amazing how people can say something and say they never said it, agree to something (even on paper) and say that’s not what was meant, commit to someone in a relationship and quickly violate that commitment.
What caused this sea change? I can guess although I really don’t know.
But what I do know personally was that it was much better then!
