Lies I Tell Myself

I once had a friend who seemed to lie about everything.  Nothing was out of bounds, the small stuff, big stuff and everything in between.  It was really hard to distinguish what was the truth and what was a lie.  Sometimes, elaborate stories could be woven into a Tasmanian blur and would collide in such a disastrous end.  It made it difficult to be their friend and inevitably, we went our separate ways.


Now, there are sweet little lies like “no baby, that dress does not make you look fat,” or telling your little one that fairies and unicorns are real.  Then, there are the ones of Goliath proportions that should never be uttered in the first place.  On the other hand, there are lies that we all tell ourselves.  You know the ones.  Today, I’m sharing some of mine.

  1. I will learn how to do yoga today and tomorrow, I’ll run a marathon.  Good luck {to myself} burning off that 4th croissant I promised myself I would, haha.
  2. It was so not a big deal when I fell like a clumsy child during the first trip I took with J {it was endearing, I assured myself}.
  3. The ugly pastries don’t exist…because I gobble them up before anyone else can see.
  4. I’ll go to bed before 3 am.  Nope.  Not happening.  Like ever.
  5. That I’m perfectly content with the fact that my partying days are over.
  6. That I’ll spend my next paycheck on something pretty, not just edible {I have no shoes but one very happy belly}.
  7. That I will stop being such a worrywart.
  8. “I’m hungry.”  In truth, I have no self control and my belly is as greedy as it is insatiable.
  9. “I don’t know how this happened.”  Oh yes I do!
  10. Sure, I feel sexy.

What are some lies you tell yourself?
