The Truth About Lies

  1. What is your earliest memory of having to lie or hide parts of yourself?
  2. What trauma or painful memory is associated with what led you to that behavior?
  3. What limiting beliefs or shame about yourself emerged at that time?
  4. If you could go back in time and fearlessly speak your emotional truth in that moment, what would you have expressed?
  5. In the current day, what are you not being honest about? If you were honest about this, what do you fear would happen? Is that worth continuing this lie?
  6. If you were living a truly honest life — what would be different? Do you like the idea of that life vs. the one you are living?
  7. Is there one small step you can take to living out that truth?
  8. Challenge: The next time you find yourself either People Pleasing or Façade Making, take a risk and speak your truth instead. See what happens.
