My Confession.

I am a 17 year old girl. I've just started college. I have a confession to make. I am a liar. I lie everyday. I lie about my family life, I lie to get sympathy from people, I lie to make myself seem like a better person. I invented a relative that was addicted to drugs, a family friend with cancer, and a best friend who died from a brain tumour. I've lied and exaggerated to have different effects, to my Mum; so she thinks I'm popular and strong, my friends; so they think I'm tough and wanted by boys. And I lie about the most trivial things; sometimes I don't even realise. It's pathetic. I've got myself caught in a web of lies and I can't tell anyone, but I need to confess. There. Done.

  • I went through the same thing from the beginning of middle school to now, my Junior year in high school.

    You need to confess.

    And it's SO HARD to do. I would know. I'm recently confessing to people of importance of lies I've told and it feels really good, but it's something you have to do in small steps. The more you think about gaining forgiveness from other people (and yourself, because clearly you feel guilty) the more you'll be able to figure out the real reasons behind your lying, and you'll learn to stop. It's an ongoing process.
