Do you feel stuck in your life? Do you wonder why? Does something seem wrong, but you can't put your finger on it? In The Lies We Tell Ourselves, psychotherapist Jon Frederickson reveals the ways we fool ourselves and how to get unstuck. Through dozens of stories and examples, he demonstrates that the apparent cause of our problems is almost never the real cause. In addition, he reveals what we really fear and how to face it. In the spirit of Stephen Grosz and Irving Yalom, Frederickson shows how to recognize the lies we tell ourselves and face the truths we have avoided--and stop saying yes when we really mean no. Although we may use falsehoods to escape pain, clinging to our fantasies actually becomes the source of greater suffering. This book shows how to create a better life by letting go of our lies and facing reality. It also demonstrates that therapy is not merely a chat; it is a relationship between two people devoted to facing the deepest truths of our lives so we can be he

Humans are excellent liars. We don’t like to think of ourselves as capable of lying; it hurts us too much to admit. So we lie to ourselves about that, too. As a clinical psychologist, I am regularly confronted with the brutal truth that we all lie. I am not talking about deliberate, bold-faced lying. No, this type of dishonesty is far harder to detect and admit. It is the kind of lying that comes from not being psychologically strong enough to be honest with ourselves about who we are. And I believe that it is our biggest obstacle to living a fulfilling life. I wrote this book for anyone interested in becoming more honest. In it, I present a range of self-deceptive examples couched in psychological theory to help us explore ourselves. Although it is a relatively short book, indented to be read in about an hour, I hope that the content provokes deep thought. For when we are honest about who we really are, we have the opportunity to change.

We all know what it's like to justify something we're about to do with a clever excuse. Temptation knocks at every door. No one is immune. But often we put ourselves in places of vulnerability and then wonder why we get tempted. So, wherein lies the problem? With the lies we tell ourselves and our resulting behavior. In this engaging book, Greg Laurie takes an honest and humorous look at the ways we fall into sin and how we frequently rationalize our actions. Drawing from the pages of Scripture and his own experiences, he shares practical steps we can take to effectively resist temptation and put an end to the compromises that will ultimately lead to our downfall.

The superstar at work? Always feeling like bottom shelf instead of top shelf?• Feeling helpless and wondered where you would find the strength to carry on? I have had some of these very same challenges and I went through a time period where I could not drag myself out of bed. This happened to me right after my Mother passed away. I had no energy, no passion and was willing to throw away everything I had and give up. In fact, I did just that and almost lost everything. I threw away a home I built, businesses that were thriving and a life that was awesome and moved across the country to a place I literally hated. I also have been through many of those other challenges as well.I moved across country to Florida because I thought it was a solution and after a few months realized it was no solution, especially for me. Years earlier I had created a formula for success and as I sat there all alone by myself , feeling sorry for myself and sick to my stomach, I remembered the 10 Essential Steps for Success formula I had created and went and pulled it out. I had re-discovered something that had never failed me and a short while later I was back on top. The 10 steps put me back in the new world.You see the old world did not work for me any more just as you will discover it will no longer work for you. What I am talking about is self-doubt, low self-esteem and worry and wonder. What helped me to become successful was removing my old mindsets and designing new ones. This was my new world and letting myself drift back into that old world thinking was detrimental to me. The old way does not work.The solution is I wrote this book called The Lies We Tell Ourselves as well as a workbook by the same name to remind myself daily about what it is I need to do. The big picture is I have taken down my challenges one by one and did so by the 10 steps and the mindset training in this book. This book is not magical but at times it may seem so. Really this book is a great reminder about who you are and what you really want. This book also reminds you to take time for yourself and discover who you are.

What is a lie? A lie is an assertion that is believed to be false, typically used with the purpose of deceiving someone.Is it still wrong to lie if you know the truth will hurt someone? Often times lies start out small; an attempt to save someone from unnecessary hurt, but does the same scenario apply when you're lying to yourself.Lies are like a black hole, the further you continue to slide into the unknown the harder it is to get back out. They begin to consume you. Every aspect of your life begins to revolve around them until you're uncertain what is true anymore.Once upon a time, I was happy. There was a light that illuminated from deep within my soul, but as time passed the light began to fade; snuffed out by the lies I kept telling myself."Everything's fine.""I'm okay, honestly.""Yes, I'm happy..."But I haven't been happy years. Often times I sit and contemplate when things changed. When did the happiness glowing inside of me begin to fade? When did the overwhelming sadness creep in and turn me into the person I am today? Distant, cold, and emotionless, like stone.Once upon a time, I was young and beautiful with a heart full of hope and head full of dreams, but now the youthful luster of my skin has faded into ashen gray. The twinkle that once shined so brightly in my eyes has ceased and the boyish smile that graced my lips has now succumbed to the disappointment my years on this earth have shown me.Once upon a time, I was in love. A love that burned brighter than the sun on a summer day. But now my heart is like a garden in winter, barren and dead. Only showing the skeletons of the life that once thrived there. I've been waiting, hoping, wishing, that spring would come for a long time now---but it hasn't.Jason has been married to his husband Wilson for sixteen years but when Wilson contracts a life-threatening flu he ends up in a coma. When he wakes up, Jason discovers that Wilson had a stroke and will need help with every aspect of daily life.

NOW A NETFLIX SERIES ENTITLED “SPECIAL” FROM EXECUTIVE PRODUCER JIM PARSONS STARRING RYAN O'CONNELL AS HIMSELF. From the beloved blogger turned voice of an online generation, an unforgettable and hilarious memoir-meets-manifesto exploring what it means to be a millennial gay man living with cerebral palsy, which VICE calls “a younger, gay version of Mary Karr's Lit.” People are obsessed with Ryan O’Connell’s blogs. With tens of thousands reading his pieces on Thought Catalog and Vice, watching his videos on YouTube, and hanging on to each and every #dark tweet, Ryan has established himself as a unique young voice who’s not afraid to dole out some real talk. He’s that candid, snarky friend you consult when you fear you’re spending too much time falling down virtual k-holes stalking your ex on Facebook or when you’ve made the all-too-common mistake of befriending a psycho while wasted at last night’s party and need to find a way to get rid of them the next morning. But Ryan didn’t always have the answers to these modern day dilemmas. Growing up gay and disabled with cerebral palsy, he constantly felt like he was one step behind everybody else. Then the rude curveball known as your twenties happened and things got even more confusing. Ryan spent years as a Millennial cliché: he had dead-end internships; dabbled in unemployment; worked in his pajamas as a blogger; communicated mostly via text; looked for love online; spent hundreds on “necessary” items, like candles, while claiming to have no money; and even descended into aimless pill-popping. But through extensive trial and error, Ryan eventually figured out how to take his life from bleak to chic and began limping towards adulthood. Sharp and entertaining, I’m Special will educate twentysomethings (or other adolescents-at-heart) on what NOT to do if they ever want to become happy fully functioning grown ups with a 401k and a dog.
