What turns us into compulsive liars?
Reading your question you are using the word you. as if referring to the reader, but I am guessing you are talking personally. Firstly well done for being brave and taking this issue on. I believe it comes down to two things self-value and self-love. As a dyslexic I often struggled with valuing myself in the past. If I met someone who I considered to have more value than me I would feel intimidated and hide myself. I grew my sense of self-value as my self-love grew. I would like to recommend a fellow life lab blogger's book. Dr David Hamilton's book 'I Heart Me'. http://www.amazon.co.uk/I-Heart-Me-Science-Self-Love/dp/1781801843/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1425891434&sr=8-1&keywords=i+heart+me+david+hamilton
Grow your self-love and you'll see no-one is superior to anyone else. It's only a perspective. But by finding your own value, you can see how your differences are skills that become benefits to yourself and others. It how each person is different that makes the world an interesting place! You don't been to change to fit in, you need to show up as more of yourself. Hope that helps :) Becky
