Is There a Liar in Your Head?
Remember If You Lie You're a Liar!
For one reason, or another a "liar in my head,” convinced me many years ago, I wouldn't be able to obtain a Computer Engineering job. I believed this fib for a while and didn't apply for a spectacular job at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
Wow, this was going to be my first large break to work in aerospace with ADA and Artificial Intelligence. Imagine this; I could have been working for NASA's rockets! Guess what, that discouraged me so much I finally dropped out of the Engineering World. I became evolved in other tactful endeavors, like computer programming with mathematical logic, instead! This type of work was similar; though, it was definitely not the same. Besides, by this time my husband didn't want to move to Florida anymore, and this is the cause I switched my career plans.
When I was a girl too, a liar in my feeble mind also convinced about my dwindling reading comprehension. It was exceedingly low, since I spoke French. There was no way to improve my reading score without going to summer school. I believed this lie, for a while...until I decided to apply myself in after school projects.
I began reading an enormous amount of English books. I looked up the meaning of words I didn't understand in a dictionary and my reading comprehension eventually soared. Within six months, I grew fond of reading for the first time in my life!
A big, fat liar in my mind, then convinced me in my twenties about how I was going to remain fat, and may keep getting fatter, if I didn't do something fast. I weighted 168 lbs at a size of fourteen during this time. I could not believe how large I was and felt inhibited for the first time in my life. My average size was always a four or six. I had to do something quick or risk losing my self-esteem. A caring, professional counselor advised me to ride my bike on sunny days and Sundays. He also taught me to keep a journal of my daily actions.
The doctor said to keep a list of all the foods I was eating, too, throughout the day. I followed his advice to the letter, and my beautiful daughter was happy to go bike riding with me. I finally lost over thirty pounds, and dramatically changed my eating habits. I stopped eating cookies and burgers, and learned to eat healthier. I’m a lot happier and healthier today, because of this caring doctor's guidance.
A dire liar in my head convinced me a long time ago; an immediate family member didn't like me for one reason, or some other. For a terrible reason, our blood types didn't match, and we couldn't get along. I tried to make amends with this individual several times; however, there has always always some sort of conflict. I decided to stay away for a while. I am at once at peace with her, because of this, and we now call each other from time to time to say hello.
What is the terrible liar in your head telling you? Have you thought of a thoughtful way, to overcome these lies?
Not telling a lie is the answer, and this does help to keep your friends! Think about it, I have, and this is what I came up with for you!
What have you done for yourself lately to overcome a lie someone or something in your mind's eye has had you naively believe? Can you talk about it? Talking is the first step to healing.
A Unique Liar Analogy Using Art
Impressionist Art is a most dainty and delightful art form. It is extremely pleasing to the eye, at least; I think so! When you get up close and personal to it, and choose to admire the details. At first, nothing makes sense. The dubious painting looks like a bunch of dots slapped on hazardously on a piece of old, rugged canvas, without any sort of shape or form.
However, from a glorious distance, the impressionistic image comes to life with colorful hues of beautiful landscapes, and parks with elegantly dressed people. At times, there are gorgeous ladies walking and wearing magnificent hats of all shapes, hues and sizes, eating crumpets or walking in a lovely garden.
Comparing this dramatic art form, in an analogy, to the subject of "the liar in your mind" you can see that the spaces between the dots of such an impressionist image depict the holes, or lies embedded in your head, so to speak.
The lies are the empty spaces without form or substance, on the canvas, which make up the painting subject. They are nothing, period, just holes that fill a void! The further away, you look; the clearer the picture becomes. You can also imagine the smoother your life becomes too! This can go for the "lies," that are ravaging your mind too.
To compare, you may want to step back to look at the overall picture of what you want to achieve in your life. Get a hold of a blank piece of paper either to draw a picture or to write your dire aspirations.
Analyze your goals to get a better idea, to see clearer, and jot down a few new ideas. You'll see the empty spaces in your paper, canvas looking smaller and creating a brighter picture. As you look over, and simply ignore the empty spaces. Just like the voided dots in an impressionist art masterpiece.
Don't let the aimless spaces, in your life, come between what you are working hard to achieve, and the things you are doing your best to ignore. Stay focused! Also, don't pay attention to the idiosyncrasies.
Step back to get a better understanding of what you want to accomplish in your life with your goals. You can't fail, if you think of the "lies," this way. They are only dreadful spaces that must be ignored.
The more you practice this trick, the easier it will be, to overcome the lie. You can't fail, if you do this, this way! The “liar in your mind," will become a skirmish, and insignificant negative thing, that you can decide one day, not to give any kind of attention to, whatsoever!
Remember, girls are a little princess who grows up, to become mommies too!
Overcome to Succeed! Never Give Up! Love Your Family Forever!
