We all lie to ourselves about certain things.

Hey, how else are you supposed to get through this crazy life?

At least that’s the way I look at it…

What lie do you tell yourself the most?

Here’s how AskReddit users answered that question.

1. It’s getting late…

“Just one more episode.

The next minute you’re already watching Season 2.”

2. Uh oh…

“Tomorrow I am going to exercise.

99% of all diets and exercise regimens start on Monday.”

3. Let’s hope so…

“Even if things go awry, I’ll figure it out. And if I can’t I’ll learn something from it.

Corny but it works for me.”

4. Yes, you will.

“I won’t trust anyone anymore.

It’s hard to stop ourselves.”

5. All night long.

“I’ll stop scrolling Reddit in 5 minutes and go to bed.

Cut to an hour later…”

6. Lonely.

“That I’m okay being alone all the time.

Being alone and being lonely are similar(or even same) situations objectively but yet very different for most people I think. Also you can be lonely while not being alone.

Being alone is quite enjoyable for me most of the time(I tell myself), but the few times it is not and I feel lonely, it is miserable, which fuels my depression, fuels the social isolation even more and so on.”

7. Use your time wisely.

“I used to tell myself the famous saying, “Time changes/heals everything”

But going a bit off-topic here: One day while watching a Dr.House episode, a line really caught my attention:

“Doing things changes things, not doing things leaves things exactly as they were.”

Time is just a resource, utilize it.”

8. Good luck to you.

“That there is still some hope…

That my future isn’t f**ked.”

9. Okay.

“I’m okay.

Constantly telling myself I’m okay. It’s going to be okay.

One day it will.”

10. Liar!

“Dentist: Do you floss?

Me: Yes.”

11. Wrong.

“That I own my cat.

And that he doesn’t own me.”

12. Working on it.

“Tomorrow I will do better’.

I’m working on it…”

13. Give it a shot.

“I’ll quit s**king at the end of the month.

I do truly hate s**king at this point but I’ve still been unable to quit for more than a few weeks.

Addiction is truly a powerful thing.”

14. In denial.

“That I’m doing alright.

That I am okay with leaving him.

That I’m over him.

That I don’t love him anymore.”

15. There’s someone for you.

“That someone out there actually wants to date a divorced 38 year old man who lives in a c**ppy apartment, only makes 30k per year, and has a kid.”
