I Wish I Could Tell the Truth

I can't help myself, I just seem to constantly lie. I don't lie about many big things but I am always making things up to make myself seem more interesting. I keep getting caught in my lies but I still can't seem to stop. I don't even know why I do it I just can't seem to tell the truth.

Brighteyed, (you too grey..) Can I encourge you? Their are many different lies, or degree's you could say. Their are the tiny fib's all of us stand guilty of. Ex. answering the phone for someones who's busy, and rather then writing a book at the time, just saying He's not here, bah, bah, bah. Then their are the kind, that can change us, as living under the deception of lies will do. It takes courage to live and stand in truth. In that courage you will be more interesting, more challenging, as you start to become you! The rainbow comes out after the rain, when the sun shines. It needs the light to develop itself. Standing in the light, will teach you to not want to be it, but allow you to be it. You learn to be what you want to be. Take the action, volunteer somewhere, were you have the expierences & stories behind you, that will make you interesting. Don't be too hard on yourself, as you journey on giving yourself life experiences. At the end of your rainbow, that truth in you, (who you will be), will far surpass the make believe. You will not find yourself hiding in the dark (making up lies) you will find yourself much more colourful in the light and becoming yourself and so will others, who truly care about you as you develop. A lie cannot be dealt with, truth can, bringing you closer to the revelation of yourself, a wonderful, complex being.

I used to do that, but I'm stopping. If you don't let yourself fall, no one can catch you. Meaning if you don't give people a chance to know the REAL you, how do you know wether they will like you or not? And if they don't, its something you get over. But if they do, then its confidence and you know its better to be yourself, than be a pinnochio. 'A lie grows and grows until its as plain as the nose on your face'.

me too.
