I constantly struggle with lying to people and don’t know how to stop.
I think it’s really cool that you are working on fighting that tendency. Personal growth is not something that happens overnight but it’s totally possible and awesome of you. You just have to find some methods that help and work for you. You can do it!
Recognizing the problem is a good start. I know it’s not always easy coming clean, but you’d find yourself feeling a lot better if you released yourself of the prisoning feeling of lies. They start small but just continue to snowball. It’s so trapping.
Be gentle with yourself
Dude, I get you. I’m the same, I keep lying to the people around me all the time, even automatically. It can help to have a physical reminder of your goal, of what you want to be, like a piece of jewelry or a tattoo.
Try to not answer right away cause then it’s more likely you’ll lie. think about your goal about being honest, answer on your own time. And ask yourself, what are you lying about? Is there something you don’t want to talk about, or do you not trust the people around you?
