Mishaps are like knives that either serve us or cut us as we grasp them by the handle or blade. Do you understand?

I, too, questioned whether lying is good or bad, though perhaps not to the extent that you did.
Santa, Easter Bunny, etc., to me represent myths, not lies. And, according to Joseph Campbell, we need these myths, as do our children. This is just part of who we are.
But, I did have a problem with my boss who expected me to lie to the public at work. I did as I was told because I needed the job in order to survive but did not feel comfortable with it. I know I prefer the truth and wanted to say the truth where I was told to say something else.
Anyway, in attempting to resolve this dilemma, I remembered words from the Bible, "Render therefore to Caesar the things that are Caesar's and to God the things that are God's."
That helped me and, if you find it useful, you are welcomed to it.
