Everybody lies.Not intentionally the majority of the time, but sometimes we do to make things easier. In that moment we are not counting the cost to our integrety or selfesteem. I am usually using another's feeling as my excuse, my justification to lie. I lie when I am less than my best. Facing that I do lie is important if I am going to lay claim to my true self.
White lies I use frequently:
* don't have time
* don't have the money
Who am I protecting with my lies?
Myself and whoever I am lying to.
If I didn't lie, what do I think would happend to my relationship?
People wouldn't understand my point or see it as selfish or minor. I could be rejected or seen as weak.
What do my lies say about me?
I don't have a backbone, I have a hard time standing up for myself, that I think my thoughts and feelings don't count and I am not worthy of consideration, I don't trust myself.
Pivotal moments I didn't lie today:
* a friend called and I honestly said the reason why I couldn't go out, I was just not feeling like going out.
