We are human. We are fallible. And sometimes that means that lies slip from our tongue. We all do it or have done it but it’s important to understand how pervasive lying can impact you. In the beginning lying may make you uncomfortable but the more that you lie, the more your brain accommodates to this discomfort and soon enough it’s not uncomfortable anymore. This is when it starts to get tricky because when lying becomes habitual and you lie more often, you begin to move into dangerous territory of passively telling yourself that you’re not good enough and the only good enough version is the fabricated one. It’s important to ask yourself how lying serves you and in what ways it moves you further away from your authentic self.

LESSONS: Your brain will acclimate to the discomfort of lying the more that you lie and eventually become used to it. Ask yourself the following questions to help you understand your own reasons behind lying: Where do you lie? Why do you lie? How is it serving you?
