Often lying to you may give pleasure and compulsive happiness. It is worth it in some places when there is a need for confidence. When a person lacks confidence and has to overcome hardship sometimes thinking better about oneself helps a lot. But it should not allow staying away from the truth. It is known as self-deception in which a person continues lying but is not away from the truth of their weaknesses. Often running away from facing the truth may lead to a loss of self-respect. It is not at all acceptable that pushes a person behind instead of improving or progressing.
What harm can lying do to yourself?
It can be an amazing feeling to think big and good about oneself. But it is best till it keeps you motivating and doing good in life. When it continues to provide a fantasizing world that does not do any good may lead you in darkness. Somewhere at one point, a person begins to lose confidence and self-respect at the same time.
You never want to accept the truth
When you are running from accepting any truth it will always push to the negative side of life. Unless a person is honest to himself or herself, they will never be able to achieve a clear picture about their position. Without achieving a complete picture and always thinking to be the best though not at all. In such situations, a person has to face failures and uncertainty at higher rates. As they begin to develop their world with wonderful dreams. They want to achieve it but due to lying, they are not clear about the reality.
Potential and ability never improves
Yes, when a person is not aware of the features they lack. The skills they have to improve are not as many because they feel that they know it. But when practically they need to provide the potential and prove themselves. They end up failing, and they lose the ability to improvise. It is one of the reasons to stop cheating yourself through lying. And develop a clear picture of your weaknesses and work effectively on them. This will slowly increase the courage, expertise in your field and above all become a great leader in the future.
Lying oneself can do no good if it intensifies to make a person fantasize rather than develop a real and practical world.
Self-deception can lead to losing self-respect
To avoid problems and failures in the future it is essential to visualize the present flaws. But self-deception does no good accept harming. They are not able to see the difficulties and hurdles that are awaiting due to their present situation. At no point, they are ready to work effectively today to improvise tomorrow.
Once a person develops this habit they slowly start ignoring it as they believe everything is fine. But they are not aware of the practical situations that they have to face due to ignorance.
Finally, at a point in life, they are surrounded by difficulties and hard times. It is sometimes when a person due to their weaknesses and lying their self-respect never exists.
