What’s a lie you tell yourself?

Bloganuary day 23

As silly as this may sound, I don’t think I tell myself lies. I know my limitations and I have hopes for the future. I don’t lie that I’m good or bad at something. I just try my best, maybe not even all the time but most of the time and I’m realistic with my abilities. I’m not delusional to think if I have this or that I will be happy. I strive for happiness on a daily basis and try to appreciate the little things in life.

Even if I happen to play the lottery, I don’t think that I have zero chance of winning, as of course I have a chance, even if it’s the slimmest chance and that’s why I would buy a ticket, however, I am well aware by the same principle, that I may never win.

Maybe I’m missing something, I’m not sure. What do you think about lying to yourself?

  1. I’m the same way. Although, I realize there are some truths about myself that I’m not ready to deal with yet, and that’s okay. I know the time will come when I’m ready to deal with them

  2. It is not possible to lie to yourself, IMHO. If you know the truth it will persist, and you will know that you tried to lie to yourself. Sadly, the same is true, in my opinion about beliefs. You can’t tell yourself to belief something if you know otherwise. Yet, obviously I must be wrong. When I look around at all the things people believe, at all the lies they accept. Better not dwell on this. The world is spinning fast enough.

  3. It’s a good question.
    I am a really honest person. So honest, I can be a bit tactless at times. I find it really difficult to tell a lie. You can see it right away from my expression.
    I think it makes me really uncomfortable. I thought about your question, and I think if I try and lie to myself I really feel uneasy.
    When my mood is a bit low, I can become a bit of an over zealous self critic. In a sense that part of me does lie to myself, I think.
    An interesting thought to ponder!
