I lied about everything to my wife and friends, and it was getting close to the stage it wasn't working anymore. They were seeing through me.
But it was a natural thing for me to do, I lied to cover up my abuse, my acting out, my fantasies, my being useless, lazy and incompetant.
I lied to myself through my fantasy and dissociation, and that crept out as well, I lied to sound interesting to others.
And now that I've understood and destroyed the myths surrounding my old life I don't need to lie anymore.
It wasn't a part of my recovery I conciously thought about, it was so ingrained in my personality that as I've changed it's gone.
It was a foundation stone for all my insecurities, I just don't need to lie any more.
Go confidently in the direction of your dreams! Live the life you've imagined. As you simplify your life, the laws of the universe will be simpler.
Henry David Thoreau
