Come on, we’ve all had one of those days.
But we tend to lie to ourselves, and others, when they ask:
‘So how are you?’ they ask.
‘I’m fine, how about you?’ you reply, even though it’s a total lie.
So why do we do it:
- To save ourselves the trouble of having to explain.
- To save the other person the earache of listening to our problems.
- Or just because it’s easier not to tell the truth.
