I am the classic exaggerator. I want to make my stories more interesting but it always makes me feel like I am not good enough later on. Like, why wasn’t this story good enough to tell as-is. Obviously none of my experiences are worth telling people if I feel like I need to exaggerate all of the time.
So I have been starting to listen to myself talk. I know when the lies are coming out. I plan them in my head, makes sure they makes sense, and then BAM. Lie accomplished.
I lie about stupid stuff. Not important stuff. “Which street did you take home today” “Jefferson” When really I took Warwick. They didn’t need to know for any particular reason, just curious. And I lied about it for no reason at all.
What’s the point. So I quit. No more. It’s dumb.
