I have been honest. Once I got rid of the liar in my life… I was able to go back to my true, honest self. Haven’t felt better in years! 9 months ago

How I did it: I have always had a strong sense of honesty, and many times during my life it has reared its head at times that caused problems. Somehow over the past 5 years at work, my honesty went into hiding. I had to reflect on each situation, and decide how I should handle it instead of what was the politically correct way to handle it.

Now some people may read this and think that I am a tool or a jerk who lies, cheats, and steals. The fact is I think that a great many people have a hard time being honest, not in the usual sense but in a deeper quiet way. Deep down some lie to themselves that they are ok with the life they lead, others lie to people just to keep up appearances. It does not mean that people are bad just that we can work on things especially myself and being honest with me. 15 months ago
For months I felt as if I was living a lie. It was eating me up inside. I finally got rid of my toxic relationship, my toxic anxiety pacifiers (things that we do to calm our anxiety) such as smoking and drinking. And decided that what I put into my mouth should be clear and clean as well as what comes out of it. When we lie to others, we lie to ourselves. I want to be honest with myself. I want to live an honest life. And I want to find an honest partner. I realized I should become the kind of person I want in my life. If you’re a lying cheat….you’ll probably end up with a lying cheat. Simple. 16 months ago
This is the biggest lie I tell and I say it everyday. I’m surrounded by people who love me and are more than happy to lend a hand, but I’m so stubborn and I hate to admit that I can’t do something on my own, so they just get a terse, “I’m fine” to all offers of help.
I don’t want to start being dependent on them, but it wouldn’t hurt as much to admit when I need help, or even just an acknowledgement that it’s going to take me a little longer or a little more effort to do something than it would for anyone else. I have to be honest, but it’s such an ingrained habit.
I’ve got my bff and my mom on the lookout, to let me know when I’m lying like that, since it’s something I just do on auto pilot know without even realizing it. Grr. 17 months ago
