I am sorry I cannot risk that and I think your coach gave you terrible advice.
His coaching reflected the world as it is, not as he wished it was. You are entitled to make your own decisions, however, so you should do what you think is best.
I lied before and that isn't something that people can easily forgive you for. It follows you everywhere. If you got away with it then I am sure somebody of your background can lie and get away with it. I am not going to be a liar in order to get ahead. I don't care if it is a white lie, people get crazy over that kind of thing. I hope none of your lies are revealed.
