I Confess – I Believe the Lies I Tell Myself (After 7 Decades)

A lot of discussion about Michael Flynn on whether he lied in his application for a security clearance and lied to VP Mike Pence about of his calls with the Russian ambassador. I am sympathetic. I have often lied to myself. I tell myself these lies over and over until I begin to believe them:

  1. That’s a name I won’t forget.
  2. I can easily lose those ten pounds.
  3. I don’t need to write that down, I’ll  remember.
  4. I can still drive after four drinks.
  5. I can quit smoking/drinking/eating/drugs anytime I want.
  6. You still got it.
  7. Yeah, she wants me.
  8. My mind is as sharp as ever.
  9. I’m a very tolerant and reasonable person.
  10. There’s nothing wrong with my hearing – people mumble.
  11. Yeah, I can still wear this old outfit.
  12. I’m above average in intelligence.
  13. I’m a people person.
  14. I have a great sense of humor.
  15. I’m open-minded.
  16. I’m very truthful with myself.
  17. I’ll do it tomorrow.

If you lie to yourself enough times, you can lie to anyone.
