Everyone tells lies. Whether they’re small half-truths, white lies, completely unintentional or things we’re not even aware of. I think the act of telling lies and the reasons behind them is really interesting.
So, a little while back, I decided to keep track of every time I lied to see how I lie and what I lie about.
I told 19 lies in a week.
Dropped a fruit pastille on the street while walking and inadvertently let out a "Nooooo!" so loud the group in front of me all turned round. I quietly explained to them that I was very disappointed to have dropped a fruit pastille.
As one of my bits of self-improvement I’m determined to be more clued-up on current affairs. At the moment, if someone is talking passionately about an important subject I’m very good at nodding along while looking really focussed, even if i have absolutely no idea what they are talking about.
One of the comments to come through my comment box was that I need to pay more attention to my colleagues. This makes sense. Sometimes I can be in a world of my own, I need to try harder with those around me.
So, when one of the girls in the office said she was doing a juice diet for a whole week I saw my chance to be supportive.
