Topic #20--"Confession" Entry

Mary Ann's entry makes me think!

"my confession about telling lies
stems usually from my desire to keep the peace.
or out of fear...
i don't want to hurt anyone's feelings...
so i hide my true feelings.
i avoid confrontation/fights/bad scenes like the plague!
i want to diffuse tension,
to keep things light,
to remain neutral,
to minimize stress,
to be nice,
to save face,
to get along,
to stay sane.

that's why i tell lies.
not all the time mind you.
i'd rather tell the truth...
it's just that
certain situations call for it
or when i need
to feel "safe"."
