When I answer questions of a personal nature, readers often get in touch with their own thoughts. So, we now have a weekly feature, Team Oracle, whereby each Friday (with the question asker's permission) we open up a question to all of you to answer too. Then, the following Friday, I'll post a selection of the best answers, alongside my own reply.
ANYONE can join in so, if you'd like to, please email your response to the following question, in no more than 200 words, to before Thursday 26th May.

I have been a terrible liar to my family. I feel like I am stuck in a web of lies. I have recently been telling the truth. Still, I don't feel right inside. The worst part is, my mom found about all my lying and has not been believing me. I don't blame her though. Oracle, please tell me what to do. I need some direction. Also, please note that I am only of 12years of age. Alexis.

Look forward to seeing your replies.
The Oracle.
