For higher levels of self-esteem. Honesty is the best policy.
Do you lie to yourself?
We all do it from time to time.
Sometimes we do it consciously so that we don’t have to make an effort. If you lie to yourself about some traits or behavior you know you need to change. You’re doing yourself no good.
This practice can lead to physical mental or emotional issues that wreck relationships ruin your career or lead to physical health problems.
If you’re constantly caught lying people begin to feel that they can’t trust you.
This could harm any area of your life even if you successfully lied to everyone and never found out.
Are you really helping yourself?
This probably happens because they’re stressed about being found out and they constantly after remember what lies they told in the past.
This is no way to go through life.
Everyone should enjoy healthy feelings of self-worth and if you’ve got to mislead
get through the day you almost certainly won’t feel good about yourself.
Whenever you lie to a loved one the feelings of frustration disappointment and anger you feel towards yourself are not good.
Worse yet when you lie to yourself you’re injuring yourself in so many ways.
True self-worth means assessing your true reality
Your feelings of self-worth have to originate from a realization of your true situation.
