writing prompt / 003

003. Name one thing you have lied to your self about. Why did you do this?

I lied to myself about my shyness being virtuous, rather than selfish. It was comfortable. It was safe. I avoided vulnerability. I lied to myself by thinking that it would be fulfilling to never stretch, jump, or take the risk. The best thing I ever did? It was getting over that shyness. And some of the best experiences have come from that. 2/4/15
