For instance: When I look in the mirror I know that I could afford to lose a few
|Yep, that's me!|
Another lie that I keep telling myself is about my memory. I have a great memory. I can almost remember everything that happened yesterday. I can go to the grocery store without a list and get everything I need. I can remember telephone numbers without writing them down. An appointment with the doctor isn't on my calendar because I have a great memory! All lies!! Big, fat lies that I have quit telling myself. My memory sucks. I have to write everything down. And I mean everything. I make a grocery list. Then I used to leave it at home. See, can't even remember to take it. Now I use "Out of Milk", an app on my phone. I just need to remember to take my phone.
One area of my life that I am really great at lying to myself has to do with home and car repairs. That spot on the garage floor that resembles oil isn't really that big of a deal. I can always add more oil. That grinding sound the car makes when I turn a corner will go away. I just need to drive it more. That tiny drip from the kitchen sink isn't that important. Or the one in the bathtub. Or the one at the outside faucet. See what I mean? Easy to keep telling these lies to myself.
Then there are the health lies I tell. I can see perfectly fine without glasses. I only have to squint a bit to see that scrolling

Now you can help me feel better. Do you lie to yourself? Share some of the lies you have told yourself. We all do it! I know we do.
