    I always say I hate liars

    and that if you lie to me then I'm done, but I lie all the time. But I only lie so I can try to make myself believe something else. I don't want to believe the reality of my life situation or how much it ******* sucks or how much it hurts me, so I lie. But I'm only lying to...

    I Lie To Myself Everyday And I Live In Denial

    Living in denial is like a drug like meth. The more meth you take the more you like it and get used it. I've lied to my friends and family since day one. Lying has gotten me troubles that have re-shaped my thinking and logic.  For example, when i was 8 years old i stole 50...

    A Place Called Denial

    I lie to myself on a daily basis. It's how I manage to hold it together no matter what happens. I tell myself that I'm the smartest, prettiest most awesome person I can be, but I know that's not true. The more I think about it, the more parts of me I find that I hate. So I...

    Pretending things are great,

    when I really have to hate,the way things are going,all that while really knowing!That the truth is showing,and the battle is blowing,like lots of windblown dust,as my dreams turn to rust!And in myself, I lose trust,and so I really, really must,stop this sly deception,or adjust...

    Vain promises after other fall short of

    themselves and violently collapse.I like to tell myself certain naive things. "It gets better". "Things change". "We'll brave this place". In fact, it gets worse. Nothing changes. You're already stuck in motion. It's a perpetually cruel game of self deception turn false reality...

    I Hate Lying

    I hate lying to myself and others that everything will be fine and I'm okay. I hate having to slather on false happiness on the words I speak and force a sparkle and a twinkle in my eye. I do this everyday, but believe me that doesn't make it easier on myself at all. No one seems...

    I Can't Stop It.

    I just lie and lie and in my head I think I've manipulated everyone around me. Sometimes I just want it to come crashing down and tell the truth about everything, I want to know why I feel like this. I just don't know how. I can't express it. In my family, my mother got pregnant...

    Very Well.

    I lie to myself to make going through life easier, and it is.  Pretending that you are a cold heartless person is much more productive than the person who breaks down in tears every time they see a beautiful sunset.  The only problem is, I've been doing it for so long...

    I Once Did

    I don't so much anymore. The past was all lies: that I was tough, that I was straight, that I was lonely, that I loved, that I didn't love, that I perhaps was addicted to various things, that I was ever okay. Now, I've finally realized that lying to myself gets me nowhere. It...

    And it has started to eat away at my soul.

    I can't stand not being able to achieve my own expectations so I try to delude my self and others while I rot inside with guilt. I don't want this for myself anymore. I think I owe myself some honesty and others deserve to know the real me. This perfectionist mentally is self...

    If someone keeps lieing to you and you forgive them once and they lied to you again and it became harder to forgive them but you did, should you forgive them the third time?
