Have you noticed that most of us live a lie? We believe what the newspapers say, what our coworkers say, what our friends say, but most of what they say is to present a facade to you, an image, not reality. If we choose to believe everything that everyone tells us, we then choose to live a lie. Not that we intentionally lie, but have learned to minimize and alter reality so that we can be accepted. We are so afraid of rejection, that our coping mechanism is to pretend we are somebody else. Think about it.
