@connerj93, Lying can be very beneficial in certain situations. My fear with it is how much I lie to myself or not being aware of how many white lies I tell. I’ve found throughout this that I lie very rarely, but I still would like to be completely aware of exactly how much I lie.

@dany, I will have to look that book up. I’m interested to see how he deals with white lies and sparing peoples feelings.

@grimghast, I feel I am a pretty capable liar, but that I am in control enough that I rarely lie. This has helped me see what situations I tend to lie in (I mainly lie to myself). It has also helped me recognize which things about myself I would like to hide (mainly things about my past relationship). Interestingly enough, I think it has also helped me to notice when others are lying. If you are still having problems give this a try. If nothing else it helped me to learn about myself and I would like to sustain the idea.
