Or, as in my case, if someone fears rejection, is naturally insecure, and/or has a mother, father (or authority figure) with mood swings, there is a pretty good chance the art of lying is being honed and perfected.
- Even though I had become a liar in this fashion, I accidentally created the same fear-based culture in my own home and then marveled when my children lied to me. Go figure.
- How easy it is for humans to condemn others for lying when we have all done it and we frickin’ know why it is so very difficult to be truthful.
- Quit trying to make myself feel better by denouncing other liars
- Ask myself how I can help people feel honored and accepted enough to be real
