Many times I was told that I am too honest and direct with people and that it would earn me more enemies than friends in life. So I finally came up with a practice to change that: I try to tell a lie at least once a week. I really have to make an effort to remember this practice and keep it going, but I am pretty confident that I’ll get use to it and will get easier and easier with time. This ‘tell a lie’ exercise is also stimulating my creativity and self-awareness, while having some fun in the process, because often I need to come up with a story and being convincing while doing it. I bet I’ll start seeing some solid results in no time and my brutal honesty will become a memory of the past!
