It's A Lot Easier To Lie Than To Tell The Truth, Also The Sky Is Blue And Water Is Wet
Dishonesty begins with the self. It starts when we can’t reconcile a difficult experience. The first lie is the one we tell ourselves. It’s usually, “It didn’t happen” or “It didn’t happen like that.” We avoid these realizations because we’re terrified of how they will make us feel. We do it because we’d rather live with the long-term consequences of lying to ourselves and others than face the temporary pain of the truth. So, we repress the truth and our feelings about it with a lie to keep the pain at bay.
You're telling me that people will lie to other people, just to avoid a difficult situation? Get the fuck out of here. I don't believe it. I've never known ANYONE who would do something shitty, and then go to unbelievable lengths to hide it. I don't know a single soul who would fail to disclose personal information to another person who may be directly affected by the information in question. No one, in the history of the world, has ever pushed emotions down so far that they've convinced themselves they don't exist. And I really, REALLY don't know anyone who sometimes purposely avoids text messages or questions about where they are, who they are with or what they are doing, because
I that person knows they should NOT be where they are, doing what they are doing with someone they shouldn't be.
The truth will set you free, always. It feels good to tell the truth. Sometimes it hurts people's feelings, sometimes you don't want to admit to yourself that you're being sketchy, but it always ends up being fine. On this week's episode of Because We Got High, the T episode, we got into the topics of Therapy, Truth and Twitter. Should we all be in therapy? Should we all get off Twitter? Probably, to both.
