Why Do We Lie?
We Lie to Stay Safe.
To be safe, or to be seen ...
That is the question.
In any given day, we tell a million little white lies to ourselves + others. Why? Because to be honest, is to be vulnerable and we're pack animals-- when we tell the truth, we may be excluded, or rejected, which, feels like the ultimate threat. According to science deception creeps in seductively and can cause a numbing effect on our psyches and easily become a habit. Learn more about the science of deception.
We all crave authenticity, but what that also comes down to is the willingness to be open + honest with ourselves + those we love.
