How many times do you lie to yourself in a day? Oh, possibly, or probably, way more than you are aware of. The truth is often so difficult that we lie to ourselves at least a little, to soften the blow. Whether that is a good idea or not, is a different question.
Sometimes it’s the most dangerous thing in the world. Other times it’s harmless. And then there are times where it probably is even life-saving.
It amazes me sometimes when I make myself conscious of what I’m telling myself.
