“Every act of dishonesty has at least two victims: the one we think of as the victim and the perpetrator as well. Each little dishonesty makes another little rotten spot somewhere in the perpetrator’s psyche.” – Lesley Conger.
It’s 8: 22 PM on day 105 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, feed myself Batura – deep fried bread – for breakfast, tweet about my Clean Water For All Campaign for a few hours – $2 205 more to raise in 68– I am SO nervous 😦 – slept for a few hours – my hips were killing me 😦 – feed myself a banana for lunch, watched TV, feed myself Custard for dinner and exercise for 15 minutes – I’m sweaty and stinky and in desperate need of a cold shower LOL 🙂
Today a family friend of ours came to visit and she always asks me about my plans for the future and although I hated doing I would lie through my teeth because lying was easier than having her think of me as a loser but today as she took a sit next to me and asked me about my exams I made a decision to tell her the truth no matter how uncomfortable it made me and to my surprise it wasn’t nearly as bad as I thought it would be she just said oh I understand and walked away and in that moment I felt like a huge weight had been lifted off my shoulders. Have you ever lied because it was too uncomfortable to tell the truth? 🙂
