They lie to you, and you believe them.
Reformed grifter, card sharp, and pickpocket Matt The Knife dishes about leading a double life.
Ever wonder what it’d be like to lead a life of deceit?
“I found the dick pics my (now) son-in-law sent my daughter. She had backed up her computer to an external hard drive and didn’t realize they went, too.”
I never made promises I couldn’t keep. But you were careless. You didn’t really mind leaving a casualty behind as you recklessly lied and whispered sweet nothings.
And I know I should have had enough self-respect to walk away sooner but love has a way of making you do stupid things. Love makes you believe these lies.
“That I’m 100% straight.”
“I started looking into crowdfunding and used my entire network and raised approximately 2000 USD in 36 hours flat to go see her. There was NO chance in the world I would risk not getting to meet Lucy.”
Whenever you feel like you are slipping back into the soft comfort of negativity tell yourself a lie.
When someone torments you that person is not a life lesson in disguise – they’re simply mean.
