I so lie to myself about losing weight. I open the freezer and pull out that magnum caramel and chocolate bar and tell myself that I will exercise and eat better at a later date.
I do this when I buy pants. "They will fit perfect when I lose 5 pounds."
I know! They absolutely are devious. I have absolutely no self control what so ever
I lie to myself about my attitude to driving, convincing myself I am a great driver, always calm behind the wheel, never irate and tolerant of other road users.
The truth is I am none of the above, when navigating the city roads!
I lie to myself about my mortality. I want to live forever, but I know deep down inside that it will all end, more than likely painful and badly.
I lie to myself about the impact that I have on others, the thought being that I've no footprints on the paths that other people walk. I'm not responsible for some of the pain they feel, the fear, the angst.
I lie to myself that people get over things, forget and move on. I lie to myself about the train wrecks I've caused, the ruination I've sown, the dysfunctional relationships I've contributed to.
I lie to myself that I've forgiven my rivals and enemies for their transgressions and that they too have let my sins against them all go.
I cloak my life in lies, more with each passing year. Some of better quality, the rest so trivial in comparison to what lay bleached and dusty on the beaches of time that they are dim shadows of what once was.
We only need ever remember our lies, and my memories go back a long long way.
That I don't need any family.
I do not tolerate lies from others, therefore even less from myself. For this reason, I harbor no illusions, only the distortions of my views through my mind on this plane, much like trying to see the world through colored glass.
My brain lies, it informs my body that I am still 18.
i lie to myself that i wont freak out one day and beat a person for being so stupid. Because im pretty sure i would. but i like to tell myself i wont.
you can't lie about a possible event in a possible future. what you do is some form of self-affirmation in order to maintain self control, because "no one is worth doing the time".
I don't know. If beating the stupid out of people was possible, i would walk around punching people all day for the betterment of humanity. Would be worth it. lol.
