“Nothing in this world is harder than speaking the truth”, wrote Dostoyevsky. And the longer I live, the more I realize this to be accurate. So many of life’s problems boil down to struggles with truth. It’s not just the lies we tell others: It’s mostly the lies we tell ourselves, the truths we’d rather avert our eyes from. In short, it’s the lies that we don’t recognize as such, that often trip us up in life.
