What’s your justification for lying?

  • If I tell the truth, people’s feelings will be hurt.
  • People won’t respect me.
  • I can’t admit I made a mistake if I want that promotion.
  • If I admit I’ve been lying, no one will ever believe anything I say.

 

The rationalizations are endless. Unfortunately, lying and loneliness have a dysfunctional symbiotic relationship. Each time you lie you create a fictitious life built upon shifting sand. This instability overtime damages everything in your life— your dreams, relationships, finances, and mental health.

Subconsciously knowing that nothing can be permanent because it is built upon a lie, ID-100182979loneliness oozes its way into your subconscious and eventually into your consciousness. Overtime the loneliness becomes pervasive. Whether alone or in a crowd you must remain hidden so that your lies aren’t uncovered.

Depression, fear, anxiety, guilt and hopelessness become your constant companions as you morph into a detached observer. Remaining in the shadows from the prying eyes that at any moment could uncover your false identity. Viewing the world through the lenses of aloofness, disinterest and passivity in order to protect your fragile identity.

But that doesn’t need to be the end of the story. Friday, I’ll discuss how authenticity and transparency are the keys to a “lie-free” life.
