Why Do I Do It?

I always have this uncontrollable urge whenever I talk to someone, to tell all these huge lies, or stretch the truth, to make myself sound more interesting. I hate that I do it. I can't stop. No matter what I try, it never helps. And the thing is, I always get caught up in the lies that I tell. And when my friends accuse me of lying, I have this wall up, and I can't be honest with them. I always end up yelling at them, and saying that if they were my friend, they would always believe me. It's just...I don't know how to stop.

First ask yourself, why am i lying?

It appears you are lying because you want people to think you are interesting.

Which means you feel that you are not interesting.

So, is there anything you can do to make yourself interesting without lying?
