Wild Minds Network

Where wild minds come to rest

I have a habit of lying to everyone I know. Have I ever talked to you? If so I have probaby lied to you. It can be about anything, insignificant, or crucial. What I just relaized is that I will lie to other people in my daydreams. As weird as that is.

Apart from that in my sleeping dreams I often lie to and argue with the other people in them. It's the strangest thing, I guess after a while lying became normal to me, so now my unconcious considers it normal as well.

@Marcus- its become a coping mechanism for you. Just like MDD is for some of us. You seemed bothered by it though. what are you planning to do about it?

I like lying. And I don't feel guilt when I lie.

When I was young, I used to lie to impress my friends and teachers. Now my lies are more of a survival kind of thing. I lie to pass classes, hide vices, and avoid difficult situations. However I also lie about small stupid things.

I know that lyign is wrong, but I have never felt bad about doing it, even when I was younger.

Marcus, why do you think you need to lie? And what specifically do you lie about.

I knew this guy who lied when he was afraid, because he was afraid to be wrong or not be upto someone's expectations. I would lie about my dad's job - he was ill and didn't work so I would make up a story. but that was way back. Now its mostly little white lies in professional matters, but i hate that and try not to do so.

You need to start somewhere to put a stop to it. Why should you? because if you dont you wont know who you are anymore. And thats very important

I use to often lie when I was younger. Because my life to me wasn't as good as everyone else's or as interesting. I use to make up
things to make me and my life more interesting. I wasn't and still not proud of it but I couldn't stop doing it. I think as I started to grow up I realised I was different in a lot I did so I needed to make up a facade as a barrier between the real me and the made up me x

I don't like lying.

I grew up lying. Pretending that I was normal. Pretending that  I didn't DD. Pretending that my family was normal. Pretending that I had nothing to lie about. As an adult I worked in fields that had "master deceiver" as a prerequisite.  I am a truly gifted at lying. 

The vast majority of people that think of them selves as honest are lying to themselves.

It doesn't matter for me not becoz you and I ain't know each other in real life but it's becoz I don't think it's necessary if you'd lie or not. Personally I don't believe in truth. If you lie it shows that you know what is the truth and you automatically distort it for some reason, I don't know. Maybe you love distorting the truth, it could make you satisfy when people believe what you told them.  Just the thought.

I do the same thing.  Back when I was in high school I lied to keep myself safe.  Now I lie out of sheer habit. It's like I can't stop it.  I definitely lie to keep my other life a secret.  I don't lie in my other life.  I want to be honest.  In my other life, I can be.

How'd you know? :)

My DD character also lie but that's part of her job as a secret agent. She lies when she goes undercover. In real life, I don't lie unless I have a good reason to. I don't like writing application letters and resumes because I feel so much pressure to exaggerate things; otherwise, I have nothing to write about.

Are you lying?
