The stories we tell ourselves are the only things that keep us going.
We tell ourselves that everything is fine.
That we’re doing well.
That everything will work out in the end.
But is that really the truth?
Will everything work out?
Are you going to make it through it this time?
We tell ourselves stories and we lie because we’re scared.
We can’t handle the truth.
So we lie.
We lie to the people around us.
And we lie to ourselves.
All because we can’t handle the truth.
Because the lies we tell ourselves are better than our reality.
