Regardless of what you’ve been told. People are not a mirror of ourselves. I never could grasp this thinking and until I let go of it and realized for myself. Then was I free from this belief.
As I get older, I’m only 27 now, but I’ve learned that number one, lying is a waste of time. I’m 39. Also, lying about your age is something that has gone on since the beginning of time. You do it and most everyone else does it. You’re not new.
Every semester while I was attending a very prestigious community college back in Ohio I would change my major. “What are you this semester?” my mom would say with a smug look on her face and holding a cup of coffee. “Communications!” I would say all excited. She wasn’t as excited as I was, in fact, she would give me her “where did I go wrong face?” and walk away.
