Remember here when I told you I have a hard time lying and that this one lie (above) I had to admit I actually do tell?
Well, I discovered this blog that very prettily (via her hand-drawn typography) features the lies we tell every day. And it made me realize there are a few lies I do tell myself...
I just cannot give up junk food & candy.
Oh, they won't. Because I am really never getting on that treadmill. Remember these yoga mats?
But yes, these actually do.
Oh, and the quintessential lie of a crammer...
Nah, I'll do it at the very last minute. :)
Neither do I tell this lie.
I guess I'm an unapologetic drinker. Haha!
It is true that I find it really difficult to lie. These next two are pretty common lies that I really cannot bring myself to tell.
I'm always honest about this. I say "I just READ your text".
I struggle especially with this next one.
I'd rather text where, on the road, I am so the person I'm meeting can estimate what time I will arrive rather than commit to 5 minutes when I'm not sure I can make it on time.
But there still are lies I have no trouble telling myself. This one I actually believe.
I actually believe that I lose weight from shopping all day! Yes, I've lied so well to myself about it that I don't realize it's a lie anymore. Turns out, I am guilty of some daily dishonesty.
