When I was 20 pounds heavier barely months ago, I would, for the fun of it, randomly say to friends and family ‘Oh I am so fat’, and watch them rush at me with lies: “Oh of course not, you’re not fat. Why would you say something like that?”
20 pounds after, and they still say the same thing: “Oh you’re not fat at all. Why would you ever think that?”
How could they have said the same thing at both ends of a dramatic change?
They are humans. Us humans? We lie all the time – to ourselves, and to other people. For whatever reason.
It’s a reminder that you are the one most responsible for telling yourself the truth.
If you don’t do it for yourself, why would you expect anyone else to?
