Why Do We Lie to the People We Love?

Thereís something about love which stimulates the imagination. We fantasize about romance and sex. When we are in love we walk on air and everything is wonderful, even when in reality we soon discover that it isnít. Besides, who can compete with our imagination? And this is just the setting, the backdrop, for all the other lies which will soon emerge in our relationships:
The truth will liberate your true identity

Itís time to go from people pleaser to self-pleaser. Carve out the time to revive the hidden girl or boy within. You remember the one who laughs easily, knows how to have fun and doesnít give a hoot about what other people think. This means take off your mask and rid yourself of emotional programming.

The stress of people pleasing and performing for others can steal your heart away by making you an artificial person while you lose your natural self. Identity is tied into seeing yourself as separate from others Ė how do you differ? What do you enjoy doing? In any relationship, you are a single person living with another single person.

If you want to become irresistible to your significant other, you cannot resist that which naturally emerges from your own personality.
