Do You Ever Lie to Yourself?
Some people have told me that it is impossible to lie to one's self because according to their definition a lie is a conscious act and we cannot simultaneously know and NOT know something. Fair enough, but let us consider those self-deceptions we sneak under our own radar.
Have you ever lied to yourself? If so, how long did it take to catch the lie? What motivated the lie in the first place? What motivated the discovery of the lie?
If we can indeed lie to ourselves, what does this say about us? If one part of us is deceiving another then can either part be considered the true self?
