UPDATE: As far as we can tell, all posts made by The Mix account in the last 12 months (roughly) have been lost. We're working to retrieve them, but for now you might see some gaps or seemingly unanswered questions lying around the forums. It also means the Live Chat Announcements and We Need You sub-forums are looking pretty bare. Bear with us, we're working on it.

    To tell the truth, I am a compulsive liar and I am wrong. But I feel like I cant help it and live two different lives. the truth and a lie

    Welcome to the community, Abbey.

    Those are some strong feelings to be dealing with, particularly the way you describe 'living two different lives'. Like a genuine-self and a disingenuous-self? Sounds like quite the internal battle.

    If you're happy to share, it might help for us to know a bit more about how you feel. In what way do you think you're a compulsive liar and 'wrong'?

    Well done for reaching out - we're here to listen.

      thank you for replying.

      ​I lie about how I feel and about my life to my friends. I over exaggerate how happy I am to cover up how I feel. I lie about little things that no one cares about and doesn't even matter so don't know why I do. then I lie about big things and the opposite. like I would lie to services about hearing things for them to help me and feel like I have to over exaggerate for them to take me seriously and to get help. so I can be truthful to my friends how happy I am. and lying feels like second nature and feels safer then telling the complete truth, some days I don't lie at all and just straight up about everything, even about lying but some days I dont

        Hey Abbeyy!
        It's really good that you are acknowledging these things about yourself and the fact that you can openly say it too is a very big step to getting better! It's also amazing that some days you're very open about things which just goes to show that you do have the capability! We are always here to talk as Mike said!
