I Just Can't Help It...

For as far back as I can remember, I've lied about the contents of my life, to anyone who would listen and believe me.They started out pretty small, but... At this point, I've lied about my family history, my ethnicity, my age, my marital status, hell, even if i had anorexia or not.  I want to stop, but I'm in too deep. I've actually brought others into my lies that know the truth and they helped to back the lies up with solid evidence. I just don't know what to do at this point, as the lies keep me from making close friends out of the fear that I'll slip up and tell them the truth.

It sounds like we have something in common... Reading your post is like reading about myself... I don't know why I lie for sure but the one constant in every lie I tell or story I make up has to do with the fear of being boring, unimportant, overlooked or most important to absolutely NEVER lose face in front of anyone. I don't know how to tell the truth I guess ... Lying is all I know and it has taken over my life
