Killing Self Softly

The unmanageable part is not hiding the truth from others but it is lying to self.
With a truth you might lose others but with a lie you lose self.
That's the truth about the lie.

  1. That's true..but sometimes even your truth seems as a lie and a lie is said to be your truth !

    Simple but honest words !

  2. Yes, so very true, and the saddest part is that we all do it at some point - more often than not.

  3. Love the title, for the reason not related to the post but movie.
    Telling you from experience, lying to self can sometimes give immense happiness. At those moments, I feel truth is overrated.

  4. @Priyanka- It can be but cannot relate. Under what circumstance can that be?

    1. Well, I cannot generalise. But something that depends on situations and perceptions.
      But even beyond that, somedays I wake up n feel, Truth IS overrated.

  5. @Priyanka- I now know. There are good things to be accomplished but those are to be done with a lie.. sometimes lie is simply the only way out to do what is right.

    1. Correct. I believe truth and lie, both have their places. It's how they are perceived is what makes the difference. And of course the circumstances.
      In the course, I've come to terms with the fact that everything's run by circumstances. We have very little part to play. A thief did not dream of becoming a thief. And in most cases, a liar is not a liar by choice.

  6. A lier may not lie by choice, but may be greed that might eventually prey on others. call it the survival of the fittest or the brutallity of the stronger! I would say, anyone who is a step ahead is unknowingly preying on the ones behind to meet their egoistic desires.
