We tend to lie in the direction of our desires. Those who take their word seriously will have already noticed: we say that we always eat healthy, write every day, love our spouses and so on. But it’s not because we do it, it’s because we want to do it.

It feels as if presenting our desired persona to the world will help us become it. “Even if it’s not true today, it will be true tomorrow” we think. But the trick doesn’t work. Becoming the person you want to become is a deeply intimate act.
